We are happy to announce our newest speaker:

Oleg Tscheltzoff, Founder & CEO, Fotolia
http://www.microstockexpo.com/speakers#oleg-tscheltzoff


I wonder what Oleg will be talking about? His plans to reduce commissions yet further maybe.

Indeed, I was almost thinking about coming - mainly because I've been a few times in Berlin and really like that town, and to meet some fellow photographers - but the idea of having to pay to hear such people speak is putting me off.

Yeah, I get that Claudio. There's always someone like that at each conference you go to.  I guess you either let that decide for you, or try to rationalise it somehow, like looking at the long list of speakers who you do want to pay to hear.  Or you could just hang out in the foyer; that way you get to see the town and meet some fellow photographers, without having to pay to hear anyone you don't like. ;)

That's an idea!

Btw, I've been at that hotel once and it's fantastic from an architectural point of view: a minimalist, modern design (by british architects Jestico+Whiles) and nothing of that disgusting kitsch which seems to prevail in large hotels worldwide

That's good to hear.  The team doing the Audio-Visual stuff had great things to say about it too. 

Are the chairs in the foyer comfortable?  ;)

If I have to choose between defending my Ph.D. around that time and the Microstock Expo, I am afraid it will be my Ph.D.  ;)

Well, definitely not going to the Expo - will indeed defend my Ph.D. around that time.

Two new speakers to add:

Steve Gibson of MicrostockInsider
Josh Hodge - Pixdeluxe

We've sold more exhibition tables than we anticipated, so we've moved up to a bigger space in the hotel, which will make everyone much more comfortable.

Envato, makers of PhotoDune, have kindly sponsored the coffee and pastries, and Fuad Ta'eed from Envato will be there too, all the way from Australia.

There's still a couple of spots left to shoot at the Fashion shooting workshop with Luis Alvarez (watching is open to all attendees) if anyone wants to do that.  We couldn't find anyone to present the lifestyle workshop this year, so it's just the Fashion one.

Registrations continue to come in at a steady pace, passing 100 this week.  Those who opted-in to the networking option during registration have already received the list of other attendees who opted in to facilitate the networking. 

If anyone has any questions, feel free to ask them here or contact us directly via the website.

I will have my 10 minutes on the topic "Lifestyle Design for Professional Microstockers". My main point is how one can have a full-time job, and be one of the most productive microstock  photographers, how to manage and organise the team, and how to streamline the production.

Anything specific, you want to hear? Let me know.

Looks like this one will be the best microstock conference ever !! 
See you there !!

I'm very much looking forward to hearing more about how you produce such an amazing quantity of photos while maintaining (successfully, long term) a demanding full time job.  Specifics I'd like to hear included in your presentation:
- your space: do you keep a dedicated space for shooting your still life?  how much?
- do you shoot tethered?
- how much of your post process is automated? (photoshop actions, metadata presets, etc)
- do you use any of the distribution and submitting services available for microstockers?
- analysis: how did you determine that still life is a wise subject to be your specialty?  would it be different if you didn't have a full time job?

Thanks Elnur!

I am really, really looking forward to this, the speaker lineup is spectatacular!

You're very welcome.  It's been fun to put it together and it's humbling that all the people we invited agreed to come!  Thanks also for coming Jasmin!
