From the Boardroom to the Darkroom - My journey to becoming a Pro Travel Photographer by Steve Golden, '06 (AXP-5)
#5 Blair Rd, Shophouse
Sitting in his managing director's office in 2009, Steve Golden received a phone call from Lonely Planet that would set him on a road less travelled, changing his career and life forever. Today he is a professional travel photographer and entrepreneur. This talk will take place in the informal space of Steve's home gallery in Chinatown. Following an enthusiastic story about following one's passion and making a living doing so will be a hands discussion about how to take better photographs.
