Shameless Self-Promotion.

Posted by Rod Mar

Here's a brief bit of shameless self-promotion (feel free to change the channel -- I won't hold it against you).

I've been invited to speak about my Olympic experience sponsored by Nikon and Samy's Camera in Los Angeles on November 6th.

The best part about this event for me is that I will be sharing the stage with three other great photographers, all of whom I consider both mentors and friends -- Robert Beck and John McDonough of Sports Illustrated, and Robert Hanashiro of USA Today.

It will feature a meet-and-greet, lecture and question-and-answer session.

Being invited to show my images and share my experiences is an honor but I'm really looking forward to hearing from the others and seeing their work and the stories behind them.

If you're in the Los Angeles area on November 6th, I look forward to meeting you.

Here's a link to the event, courtesy of Samy's Camera.

Here's me at the Closing Ceremonies in my goofy photo vest....
