NPPA’s Business Blitz Roadshow to stop in Chicago

The National Press Photographers Association announced last week that its wildly successful Business Blitz Roadshow is coming to Chicago this fall on October 19-20. The program, in its second year, offers low-cost education and inspiration to visual journalists so they can establish sustainable businesses. Other stops in 2012 include Boston (July 13-14), Austin, TX (Sept. 28-29), and San Clemente, CA (Nov. 16-17).

Visual journalists can attend the Blitz’s Chicago stop on Friday, Saturday, or both days, with a cost ranging from $15-35. NPPA members receive a $5/day discount.

Moderated by ZUMA Press founder Scott McKiernan, the Blitz features the following speakers: Matt Slaby, founding member of LUCEO Images; Alicia Calzada, an attorney with emphasis on First Amendment and copyright; Allen Murabayashi, co-founder of PhotoShelter, Inc.; and Avi Gupta, Director of Photography at US News & World Report.
