For the previous 2 years, the summer version of Alt Summit has been in New York City and San Franciso. This year, however, it took place in Salt Lake, where the winter version has been going on for years. I love photographing this conference, and once again, had a fantastic time. Here’s a visual summary of what things looked like this year.

Here’s Brooke Dennis. (Image below) She and I photograph the conference together. Working with her is one of the best things about shooting Alt. Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit

Here’s Martha Stewart. She was the keynote speaker, and I made this photograph just before she was announced to come on stage. She included this picture in her blog post about coming to Salt Lake. Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit

I was in a room, taking pictures of her with a few people, like Gabby (shown above), Alt co-founder, and some other folks. Then Amy came in the room to bring me my camera bag, which I had left in the ballroom. Martha saw her with the baby, and said, “I want a picture with the baby”. So, that’s how this picture happened.Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design SummitAlt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design Summit Alt Design SummitAlt Design Summit

 

So, that’s that. A great week. If you’ve ever thought about attending Alt Design Summit, I’ve been to every one in Salt Lake and the two in New York and I can tell you that it’s totally worth being there.

Alt Summit Party on the Roof

by justin on October 11, 2012

One of the great things about the folks that put together Alt Design Summit is that they know how to throw a party. I remember at one point in the evening, as the sun cast long shadows over Manhattan, and there we were on the roof of the offices of Marth Stewart, I thought to myself, “there isn’t anywhere I’d rather be right now than right here, in this town, with these people, photographing this party.”

Alt Design Summit

January 21 – 23 in Salt Lake City are the dates for the Altitude Design Summit. It’s a conference for design and lifestyle bloggers. Love great design? Then you should go. Get this: Keynote speakers include Panelists Maxwell Gillingham-Ryan, founder of Apartment Therapy; Grace Bonney, founder of Design*Sponge; Jean Aw, founder of NotCot, and Heather Armstrong, founder of Dooce.

And that’s just the beginning. There are so many more speakers including Stephanie Brubaker, founder of Stephmodo, Kathryn Storke, founder of Snippet and Ink, and um…me. I’m so excited that I was asked to be one of the panelists. You can see the full list here.

So far, 2010 is turning out great.

From their website here is who should attend

- People that love talking about design in all its iterations. What it is. How it’s changing. Why it’s important.
- People that read sites like Apartment Therapy/drive German cars/subscribe to magazines from Europe.
- Design or lifestyle bloggers who want to (finally!) meet their fellow design and lifestyle bloggers.
- People from across all the design disciplines: graphic, industrial, fashion, interior, product, textile. Plus illustrators and photographers too.

Janet writes on internet marketing, affiliate marketing, business blogging, and social media. She came to my studio because she’s updating her blog and wanted a new portrait to go with it. Two things about Janet really impressed me. One – she knows so much about the convoluted world of SEO and business blogging. A true expert. At one point I found myself thinking it felt like I was at a seminar. She is so smart. The second thing that impressed me was how generous she was in answering all my questions. All 5,000 of them. She even gave me a tutorial on how to use Twitter. (I still don’t get it. Come back, Janet).

By the way, this isn’t my first time making pictures of her. I photographed her earlier this year when she got married.
