A few years ago, I had the pleasure of shooting with Donal Doherty when he was visiting Southern California, on his way to WPPI — the Wedding & Portrait Photographers International conference in Las Vegas. Donal is an Irishman (Derry-Londonderry) with an infectious smile and a gift for talking — but not idle chatter. He is a photographer at heart, but a businessperson, in his mind. Donal first earned a degree in marketing, before he entered the world of photography.
Eventually, he found a way to combine his two passions (OK, passion is reserved for love, family — the really important things) of marketing and photography — and sharing those passions with others. That way to share is called Engage. Engage is different from the many other creative sharing platforms that are, primarily, North American centric. If you want to watch something live, in Pacific Standard Time, that is no problem. BUT, what if you live in one of the European time zones, and don’t want to watch ‘live’ at 2AM? Now, you have a choice. Engage is the European answer to live creative training, in your time zone. Now in its Kickstarter stage, I encourage you to check it out, support it, and learn from it. ENGAGE If you want to support the Kickstarter campaign, do it fast. The campaign ends on Friday. March 20th.
