The Luminance 2012 event held in New York this past week was the first-of-its-kind event designed to explore the intersection of business, technology, culture and photography. Given how the Internet and digital technology is impacting and changing how images are created, distributed and used, those who hope to earn revenue from their images must constantly examine new trends and innovation and be prepared to adjust their business strategies.

Put on by PhotoShelter the event brought together 29 of the brightest minds and innovators who have helped define photography today. Each speaker was given 20 minutes to explain what they do. All in all it was a very informative and inspiring two-and-a-half days for the several hundred attendees. Next week we’ll provide our readers with a few of insights we gained from some of the topics covered.

Readers should also check out PhotoShelter’s free guides on a variety of topics of interest to professional photographers. Don’t miss Luminance 2013. It will definitely be worth your time.
