I have been incredibly honored to be friends with Skip Cohen. I first hooked up with him two years ago when we made a recap video for WPPI. At the time he was President of RangeFinder Publishing/WPPI. Now, after seven years at the helm there, he’s joined the ranks of those self-starters and entrepreneurs that make this country great.
BACK TO SCHOOL
Due to his stint at RangeFinder/WPPI, and a previous 12 years as CEO of Hassleblad USA, Skip has become a giant in the world of pro photography (of course, he would never refer to himself like that. The hyperbole is all mine. 🙂 So it was no surprise that when he decided to put together a last minute convention (sort of like a mini-WPPI), he was able to get some of the biggest names in the biz to help out.
This summer, from August 16-19, he’s hosting “Skip’s Summer School” and if you’re a pro photog of any level, you won’t want to miss it. For only $279 you get instruction from a top notch “faculty,” including Skip himself (but don’t call him “the principal.”) 🙂 Registration also includes one registration for WPPI 2010. You get two conventions for the price of one. It will be held at the MGM Grand, and he’s secured a special rate of just $69/night. (That’s cheaper than a Motel 6!) You can get all the details on his new site, Marketing Essentials International.
Here is the first in a short series of videos we produced for Skip. In this, he shares with us his feelings about going out on his own. Spread the love. Skip is putting a lot into this and we’re hoping to sell out the few spaces.
