Tim Mantoani and Robert Beck are the featured presenters at the Lighting Luau Speakers Night on April 22 at the Crowne Plaza Irvine – OC Airport Hotel.

Held in conjunction with the Sports Shooter Academy Lighting Luau workshop, the Speaker Night is open to the public and is presented by Samy’s Camera.

“This is an event that should not be missed,” said Matt Brown, Sports Shooter Academy co-director. “Robert and Tim are not only outstanding photographers but also inspirational speakers as well. It will be an evening that will be both educational and fun.”

To attend the Lighting Luau Speaker Night, go to the registration page at the Samy’s Camera website:

Mantoani describing his presentation said, “In today changing photography market, photographers need to find new and innovative ways to both create and market their photography. In this lecture, Tim will touch on his personal history of the journey from photo student to assisting to shooting and discuss his philosophy of what it takes to keep afloat in today's current market place.”

"I want to talk about the process --- from being assigned to shooting the picture, to arranging the shoot, working with the subject (along with agents, coaches, publicists, handlers and the assorted hangers-on), the thinking in designing the image and the lighting,’ said Beck, “The actual shooting of the assignment ends up being a small part of that process.”

The Crown Plaza is located at 17941 Von Karman Irvine, CA 92614, right off the 405 freeway. The event will begin at 7:30PM.

For more information, call Samy’s Camera educational department at: 323-456-4564.

Samy’s Camera previously sponsored a successful speaker event with Sports Shooter after the Beijing Summer Olympic Games.

“Thanks to Samy Kamienowicz, Louis Feldman and Samy’s new education program coordinator Michel Britt for bringing together Tim and Robert for what will be a great evening of photography,” said Brown.
