Gain valuable insights from creative professionals that will help you to refine your site to increase the quality and quantity of work you attract in the coming year. This panel of photo buyers will discuss what makes a successful website that clients will want to bookmark and return to regularly. The panelists will share their self-promotional do’s and don’ts, and weigh in on new and buzzworthy ways to “sell” yourself, such as having your own blog or using social networking sites. The discussion will culminate with a “live critique” using willing audience members’ websites – this is your chance to get candid, constructive feedback on your own site!
Panel line-up to include (subject to change):
Steve Cullen – Creative Director/Design Director @ Creature LLC, Seattle
Michael Elliott – Interactive Design Commander @ RocketDog Communications, Seattle

Guy Fawkes Day
Most of you are familiar with Halloween, which is celebrated on October 31st – but many of you are perhaps not as familiar with another holiday, which we celebrate on November 5th in England – and that is “Guy Fawkes Day.” Guy Fawkes was famous for his gunpowder plot to blow up the Houses of Parliament back in 1605! He almost succeeded as well, but was arrested at the last minute and promptly executed. “Bonfire Night” is a commemoration of the plot. Traditionally everyone made an “effigy” of him (sort of like a scarecrow) and in the old days, the children would wheel their “guy” around to each house asking for “a penny for the guy.” Those pennies were then used to buy fireworks that were let off later that night as the effigies were all burned on bonfires. Growing up, I remember more “Bonfire night” parties than I do Halloween, and when I was at college our town took this whole thing very seriously. The general public would build a massive bonfire on the common and after a huge parade of massive “guys” that took up entire floats, they would all be burned together and the town would celebrate with a big fireworks display.
For more information on the history of Guy Fawkes please visit:
Or, check out the fundraising gala at The Manhattan Theatre Source on Thursday!

“Entertainments to include the Gunpowder Plot Trail, live music, cabaret, visual arts, film, fine food and wine, an English Parlor, a tombola and performance of the award-winning Reckoning of Kit and Little Boots & Brit Bits 6 preview.”
