David Hobby

Lighting, Business & Social Media

Named as one of the 30 most influential photographers of the decade by Photo District News, David Hobby is the creator of Strobist.com, the world\'s most popular resource on photographic lighting. Having spent 20 years as a staff newspaper photojournalist, he now shoots editorial and commercial freelance.

Strobist is read by millions of photographers, and was named one of the Best 25 Blogs in the world by Time Magazine. Based near Washington D.C. Hobby exists at the intersection of photography, Web 2.0 and social media, studying new paths in business and ecosystems for creatives.

\"I believe that this is the most exciting time ever to be a photographer\" Hobby says. \"Yes, traditional business models are imploding. But for photographers who are willing to think like a startup, technology and the web make possible business models that would have been unthinkable just five years ago.\"
