One of the things I look forward to every year is my live seminar stops in Houston and Los Angeles. Both great cities with some of the most fun and engaging crowds I get to present to all year.
I’m thankful we will be able to do the seminar for the folks in those two cities, but after closely monitoring the rapidly changing COVID-19 virus situation and out of concern for the health of our seminar attendees and our staff, we have made the difficult decision to not gather us all together in person at the convention center. Instead, we’ll be live-streaming the entire seminar online (same dates, same times), but exclusively for the folks in those two cities.
I can’t tell you how disappointed I am that I won’t be there in-person getting to greet everybody and seeing some old friends (and making new ones), but I feel very thankful that we still have a way to present the full day of training, in its entirety without having to worry for one another’s health.
We’ve done live-stream seminars like this before — to photographers in areas of Europe where we weren’t able to bring the tour in person, so we have the technology and experience and the whole day comes off amazingly well from start to finish. Of course, the folks in LA and Houston will be able to see me the whole time, but I’m a bit bummed I won’t be able to see everybody myself. So, while I really wish we could all be together on location, our collective health is more important, and while difficult, you and I both know it’s the right thing to do.
After Houston and LA, we had Charlotte and Raleigh lined up as my next two stops but for now, we’ve made the decision to postpone my seminar in those two cities all together until this is all behind us, and we can head back out on the road live again.
I’ll have more news about our live events on Monday, so make sure you check back then, and I’ll keep everybody updated here on my blog and through my social media.
Until then, stay safe; wash those hands well (for 20-seconds) anytime you go out and when you come back home, and here’s wishing you, our country and the world good health and a stay-at-home weekend with brighter days ahead for us all.
