FREE Spring Digital Salon: 60 Years of Sports Photography with Rich Clarkson
BDA's free Spring Digital Salon features the former Director of Photography at National Geographic, the legendary Rich Clarkson, on Thursday April 21 at 6pm. BDA's Digital Salons are a fun and unique hybrid of schmoozing and networking, art and technology, entertainment and education. These FREE events bring together people from all different disciplines - filmmakers, photographers, web designers, mobile app developers and many more!
There'll be ample time to meet new people, as well as enjoy great snacks and drinks, together with a live presentation by Rich Clarkson. You'll also have an opportunity to address the crowd if you have a project to showcase, a job to offer, or crew positions you'd like to fill. If you do want to speak that night for up to sixty seconds, please arrive early to get your place on the sign-up sheet, as time is limited!
We're so excited to have Rich speak at BDA! Ever since his photos of Wilt Chamberlain were published in 1952 in a brand-new magazine called Sports Illustrated, Rich has been on the forefront of commercial professional photography, including:
- 1958-79: Director of Photography, "The Topeka Capital-Journal"
- 1975-76: President, "National Press Photographers Association"
- Contract Photographer, Sports Illustrated, with over 30 cover photographs
- 1980-84: Assistant Managing Editor/Graphics, "The Denver Post"
- 1984-87: Former Director of Photography, National Geographic magazine
- 1987-Present: President & Founder, Clarkson Creative
He's been involved in photography for so long, it's probably best just to look at his Wiki page!: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rich_Clarkson. Rich will regale us with tales from his colorful career - the highs, the lows, the mistakes he's made, and what he sees in the future for today's professional photographers.
We hope you can join us at this exciting, free event!

I must compliment BDA on their great snack and drink selection! Aside from that, I was very impressed with Rich Clarkson and with BDA for getting a speaker of his caliber. While photography isn't my focus, it was great seeing the photography community able to connect with each other in a nice space to meet a legend in their field.TinaRead All Comments
