Wow! We were pleasantly surprised to see over 500 of you show up for the kick-off Town Hall in New York’s The Fillmore (aka Irving Plaza). Despite the freezing cold air conditioning, the event could only be described as a success. Chase Jarvis turned a whole bunch of frowns upside down (with his personal DJ, no less), Catherine Talese had some very interesting insight from the photo buyer side with some killer images, and our incredible panel provided a great mix of insight and humor. George Pitts is one cool dude, Roy Hsu is a fountain of information, and I can’t believe Kareem Black did a promo piece around town last year that read “Kareem Black to wed Lindsay Lohan.” Brilliant. A big thanks also to fellow Eddie Adams alum, Landon Nordeman, and speaker-wrangler/super editor Jen Miller!
Of course, the big news was Grover’s announcement of The PhotoShelter Collection, an open, commercial stock image marketplace for anyone who wants to sell images to professional image buyers. If you haven’t already gotten the news, check out these sources!

PS Who was the dude in the front row with his shoes off and feet up on a chair?!?!?
