First up was Bryce Duffy, presented by WIRED Photo Director Zana Woods. Bryce talks a little more about the music for his video on his blog here...
Former Dwell and Mother Jones Photo Editor-turned-rep Maren Levinson, founder of Redeye Reps, introduced us to photographer Zen Sekizawa.
Charlie Holland brought us LA legend Gary Leonard, who has documented LA as "Our Town" for more than 30 years, and has a very cool LA institution in Take My Picture Gary Leonard.
Charlie Hess presented the photographer (and actor -- it's LA, people) Michael Tighe, and his amazing story of beginning as a celebrity shooter when he was just a teenager. (The original Teenage Paparazzo?)
Joseph Shuldiner, artist and Art Director, introduced us to Rocky Schenck.
