South Florida’s longest running non-profit tech conferences (It’s the 8th year WordCamp has been in Miami) is designed for WordPress users, bloggers, content creators, SEO, designers, marketing folks, and developers to hone their blogging skills. It doesn’t matter, if you’re an established blogger, a WordPress aficionado or just starting out in the blogosphere, #WCMIA 2016 has something for everyone –from classes for kids to talks that are all about the code that runs your WordPress blog.
There’s too much to list here and WordCamp’s website is obviously the place to go (quickly, since they always sell out of tickets). Nile Flores –a fellow WordCamp speaker– has put together a great blog post on what to look forward to at WordCamp Miami 2016. She highlights some interesting details about this conference and some the speakers that will be sharing their knowledge at this conference.
Here’s an excerpt from blondish.net:
“WordCamp Miami is expected to bring in well over 800 attendees, according to one of the WordCamp Miami organizer’s, David Bisset. He also says that some of the things that attendees can look forward to seeing is the kids activities.
Bisset says “There’s a lot of kids activities like the Saturday Workshop, Sunday STEAM activities, and the Kid’s Panel at the end of Sunday.”
Ptah Dunbar, the lead organizer of WordCamp Miami 2016, says that attendees should look foward to the JavaSscript Track on Sunday. He says, “We’ve got a great lineup of quality speakers.”
Ptah says that attendees should bring the following: “Bring a friend or two! Learning new ideas and connecting with friends is always a good time. Also, bring pocket notebook and pen to carry with you (leave your laptop at the hotel), for notoriously writing down actionable advice from all the really smart people you’ll be meeting over be next 24-48-72 hours (depending on how long you stay) and their Twitter handles.”
Dunbar also mentioned, “And finally don’t forget to set aside time to enjoy the beach and explore Miami! Keep an eye on the #wcmia slack channel as we’ll be sharing announcements like things to do and other surprises throughout the 18th-21st.”

Stay tuned for more info and check out last year’s WordCamp talk “How to step up your video” which consisted of 4 steps: “Story“, “Sound“, “Visuals“, “Edit“. Here’s what WordCamp Miami has to say about me:
Pascal Depuhl is a visual content creator at Photography by Depuhl, a Miami based production company. He’s been capturing still images for over 25 years and even though he got into video only 5 years ago, you’ll find his award-winning and mind changing videos on National Geographic, Netflix, the BBC and many of his clients websites. It’s common to find him in the mountains of Afghanistan or the jungles of South America and it’s just as common to walk away from one of his short documentary style films with your mind blown.
Pascal will also have a video studio set up again, so that sponsors and WordCamp participants can have him make a free short video on the spot.
I’m proud to announce that Photography by Depuhl is an official Capture One Ambassador. I use Phase One’s RAW image processor on every still life shoot I’ve produced over the last ten years. I’ve used this image processing software with Canon, Nikon as well as a variety of medium format and large format cameras over the years.
But don’t take my word for it, Capture One gives you a 30 day free trial.

There are many components, that go into a successful motion shoot and as photographers the one we are most familiar with is the visual portion of video. We learn very quickly that we must master story telling, audio recording and editing as well, but we often take the visual crafting of an image for granted–until we turn on that first continuous light source and quickly realize, it has very little in common with the strobes we’re all used to.
This Move2Motion Video Lighting workshop will focus on the most commonly used lighting instruments in video production.It’s not designed to teach you how to light–we’re assuming you already know how to do that.
Then this workshop is for you. Join us and get ready to learn some theory, basic terminology and a hands on comparison of a variety of different continuous light sources. Bring your gloves – ’cause the lights get hot and your color meter – you do still have that, right?
We’re working on planning this workshop, but it will be held in Miami in the middle of October. Stay tuned for pricing info, exact time and location. Move2Motion is offering 3 events in October that will all focus on video productions for photographers:
A huge shout out to our friends at Magic2Lighting, who are supplying the bulk of lighting and grip gear for this workshop. Special Thanks to BlueShape Batteries that are going to power all the portable lights. Stay tuned for more sponsors and event details.
I’m excited to announce, that I’ll be teaching a second Move2Motion workshop for photographers on October 17, 2015 as part of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) educational event called: Super 1 Day
Video is becoming more and more prevalent online and you’re clients are looking to share the products and services of their businesses and personal events with their clients and friends in motion productions and no longer just stills.

It’s really not that hard, especially today where everyone is jumping on the video band wagon. Facebook is favoring video content, Merrkat and Periscope are off the charts with live streaming video. YouTube is the second biggest search engine and if you think that it’s too late to get started, don’t fret – especially not, when you live in South Florida. I’ll be speaking at WordCamp Miami the end of this month about – you guessed it- Making your video. Actually about making your video. Better.
Doesn’t matter if your a nubie, who’s never posted a video ever (I’ll teach you how to use your phone) or a seasoned video blogger – you can learn how to step up you online videos. We’ll be talking about story, sound, visuals and putting it all together in the edit.
