Two months ago, we had an ambitious idea to bring our creative community together, in a time when everyone was craving a little sense of connection. Today, we are still glowing from how incredible The PhotoShelter Summit for Brands turned out to be – all because of you.
Thank you for joining the conversation, asking thoughtful questions, sharing inspiring stories and sparking new ideas. You brought the energy, and we couldn’t have asked for a better audience for our 35 fantastic speakers. I think we can all agree, there simply wasn’t a boring moment in the day.
Thank you to all of our incredible speakers for sharing thoughtful, inspiring stories, for celebrating the power of a moment, and for keeping us on the edge of our seats all day long!
We started the day out right with a keynote presentation from content marketing expert Joe Pulizzi. Joe shared insights from his new ebook on what marketers need to do now to achieve success in the wake of a global crisis.

We shared the exciting news about PhotoShelter’s rebranding, and how Libris by PhotoShelter has become PhotoShelter for Brands. As we spent the day celebrating the power of a moment, thank you for helping us ring in a moment of our own!
Today, we officially unveil our brand new look and announce an exciting change from Libris to PhotoShelter for Brands. From now on, just call us PhotoShelter. We know you already do!

Worlds collided as MLB’s Jessica Carroll and the NFL’s Ben Liebenberg came together to talk photo strategy. These leaders in sports photography shared everything from how they capture a moment to the nitty gritty details of their workflows.
The virtual summit put on by @psforbrands has been great so far.
Visual storytelling is so dang important, and it’s been tremendous to see how different leagues, colleges, and brands go about “stopping the scroll” pic.twitter.com/YTq1PsQVNb

Then, we shifted the focus to how you’re innovating, as cutting-edge creative teams came together to talk content strategy and optimizing every piece of content through your brand’s channels and the channels of your best advocates.
Super content + intention from @MiamiDolphins photography team: turn the 'pedestrian' into a real moment by changing your angle, focal length and waiting for the right second. #PowerOfAMoment @psforbrands pic.twitter.com/ioIlHWpkr2

And of course, we dug into the details during an Inside Look Power Hour, taking a step-by-step look at the content workflows of lightning-fast creative teams.

We wrapped up the day with a powerful conversation about timely, relevant storytelling with The Washington Post WP BrandStudio’s Denise Burrell-Stinson, and a fireside chat with Instagram’s Landon Morgado – leaving everyone feeling motivated and inspired.
Big thanks to everyone at @psforbrands for organizing this great learning experience. And thanks to all who shared their knowledge and experiences with us today.

Perhaps the most magical part of the day was watching you connect with each other – we’ve always known we have an unmatched community of creative people, and it was awe-inspiring to have all of you in the same (virtual) room for the first time.
The best news of all? This is just the beginning. We’ve opened up some new channels on Slack so you can continue the conversation and connect with new creative people:
- #workflow In this channel, share tips and questions about the gear, tools and processes that make your workflow run smoothly.
- #job-board Here, you can network, find the perfect candidate or land an exciting new gig!
- #behind-the-scenes Time to pull back the curtain. Share your passion projects, show us the key steps you took, and tell us what you learned along the way!
Moving forward, this can be your go-to place to meet new creative people, network and share tips and ideas.
Thank you again for spending your day with us, and for making every conversation more meaningful!
