Inspire, Adorama’s annual conference for photographers, videographers, editors and other creatives, is back for a second year.

The three-day Inspire program runs from Tuesday, June 18, through Thursday, June 20, at The Altman Building, 135 W. 18th Street in Manhattan. Day one is dedicated to still photography, day two covers business, lighting and post-production, and day three has a video and motion theme.

Key sessions scheduled for day three include the Sony-sponsored “Low Budget Indie Filmmaking from Start to Finish,” aimed at helping newbie filmmakers nurture their project from the brainstorming stages all the way through festivals and distribution; “Colorist,” featuring a conversation between AICE award-winning colorist Josh Bohoskey and producer-director Steven Pierce; and “Netflix and Branded Content Production,” in which cinematographer Joe Gabriel will talk about using the Panasonic VariCam LT and AU-EVA1, including their dual-ISO capabilities, to shoot Netflix series Brainchild.

Some presentations look to be a little more wide-ranging in terms of the business of creativity. Art of Visuals co-founder Prince McClinton will moderate a Wednesday-afternoon panel discussion on “The State of Content Creation” that will include business issues. And on Thursday evening, industry veteran Charles Haine, currently an assistant professor in cinema at Brooklyn College, will head up a panel titled “Like It or Not, Showbiz Is a Business.”

The Inspire event includes the Adorama Expo, featuring demos that let attendees get hands-on with studio equipment in set-ups for both still and cinema-style shooting.
