WPPI 2012 Meetups with Mark Wallace

Our friend Mark Wallace of Snapfactory gave us permission to repost his announcement regarding his WPPI meetups. Here it is!

Mark Wallace is partnering with PocketWizard this year at WPPI. Join Mark in this informal setting to learn about off-camera flash and remote camera triggering. This is the perfect place to ask questions about photography and meet other photographers. Mark will be giving lighting demos and has a never-seen-before demonstration that involves members of the audience. You’ll have to see it to believe it!

Mark will be hosting three meetups. Mark will be presenting his lighting demonstrations at all of them, the only thing that is different is the questions you bring with you. The meetups are informal and tend to take on a life of their own. So come to one or all of them, the choice is yours.

Price: FREE. WPPI registration is NOT required.
Location: Meet in the lobby by the lion at the MGM Grand Hotel in Las Vegas.
Bring: Your camera, your questions and a jacket – we will be shooting outside!
Time: 7:00pm – 9:00 pm

Hanson Fong Video: From Classic to “Run And Gun” to Documentary…

…Hanson Fong and the new PocketWizard Mini/Flex system can handle it all! San Francisco-based wedding and portrait photographer Hanson Fong goes in front of the camera to clearly explain how the new PocketWizard system is perfect for weddings, where one minute you may be using classic portrait lighting but a minute later chasing the bride and groom like a paparazzi. And, of course, you’re not allowed paparazzi on-camera lighting. Hanson’s results are beautiful, of course, and so will yours if you follow his advice.

EDIT: Learn more about the shoot on our website.

One of the great perks of selling a professional photo tool like PocketWizard is that you get to meet photographers from all walks of life, in all aspects of the profession and with different ways of solving lighting and shooting problems. One of our recent encounters (at WPPI) was with Jacksonville, FL-based Scarlett Lillian, wedding photographer extraordinaire. Scarlett works witha Canon 5D and Canon 580EXII flash, getting it off-camera with the help of the ubiquitous PocketWizard Plus II. Take a look at her work on and read more on her blog at Beautiful, elegant work, Scarlett!
