Through the lens live panel

By Michelle Ecker on September 03, 2015


Every Wednesday throughout the summer, our friends at Adorama invited a uniquely successful artist to their NYC headquarters to chat about the industry. From the creative director of Dos Equis's ‘Most Interesting Man in the World’ campaign to the Senior Lead Analyst of Rockstar games, we’ve had a blast listening to these artists share their experiences within the world of photography.

Tomorrow afternoon, these photographers are returning for an extremely special grand finale event at Adorama’s NYC store. We’re super excited to share that we’ll be attending this special Through the Lens AMA Live Panel as representatives of our NYIP students.

If you want us to ask one of the panelists a question on your behalf, please tweet it at us using hashtag #NYIPAdorama, then watch online to see if your question was announced!
