Somewhere right now a child is dreaming of becoming the President of the United States.


Professional photographer Matthew Jordan Smith has embarked on a nationwide quest—one that has challenged children from all walks of life and from every state to reflect upon their future and the future of their country.  Smith accomplishes this feat by asking children a single question: What would you do if you were President of the United States of America? This question, along with the many answers and images it evokes, forms the heart of Smith’s newest book, Future American President.







On Set


On Set is sure to be the best hands-on photography event you can attend this year.  Learn from top pro shooters about being on their photography sets.  Photographers Art Strieber, Melissa Barnes and Nelson Machin will share with you the best practices...

Our day will start with a lively and informative panel discussion with these amazing shooters touching on business practices, troubleshooting, on set do’s and don’ts, creative solutions and on set etiquette.

The afternoon will have our attendees rotating through three sets that will focus on different types of shoots: studio tabletop/product, studio fashion/portrait and exterior environmental portraits.  All attendees with have the opportunity to interact with the photographers, their assistants and digital techs as well as equipment and software.

This event is a “can’t miss” to those of all photography levels: from the seasoned pro to those just establishing their careers to assistants and students as well.   On Set is an invaluable glance into the workflows of successful shooters.

This event will be hosted by Siren Studios, we will have specific location information posted ASAP
