Next week there will be an art fair in Budapest and my work will be presented by Gallery Photon. I was thinking how should I present my ambrotypes in a way that could be purchased. So here it is. The box is from Hahnemuhle acid free material. On 11th of October 2014 I will be a guest of a discussion panel how to survive as an artist. Guess what will I talk about? YOU! My topshit followers that is bidding on my ebay auctions. See you in Budapest on Saturday at 3pm!

Yesterday I had a lecture at Blogres. I admit I was nervous as hell. My friend Jure gave me this pdf.


It’s really great lecture on how to do presentations. I had many talks on photography, but I always used some software like Iview to project photographs. I never made a powerpoint presentation. So I decided to make a proper presentation in Keynote. I asked Peter Koraca for help and generous help it was. We made super cooper fancy presentation with many animations and graphically designed by Peter. Unfortunately when I plug in my laptop, it froze, so I used my back up of presentation in pdf format, so I managed to make a presentation but without animation. Fortunately I’m subscribed to Eirik Solheim‘s blog (HERE) and Presentation Zen where I get good tips on presentations. + I’m a huge fan of Ted.com and their 20 min passionate presentations.

I learned a lot with my Blogres talk. Got also good feedback. I’m honored to be invited and even more that some people booked my lecture as must see.

I love Keynote and I can’t wait to use all the animation stuff on my Fotopub talk. he, he…

If this is reading also a person from audience who asked me what kind of camera do I use, I didn’t want to make fun of you when I answered color ones, I just didn’t want to advertise Canon 5D, because I might get a Nikon as a sponsor. Perhaps not.

PS: When I was starting to talk about Ambrus story, microphone stoped working. A kind of Dolenjska woodoo magic.
