August 17, 2007- PhotoShelter, the personal archiving system for digital images, will join forces with other players in the online imaging field to host photographic symposiums in a town hall meeting format. Focusing on the effects of the Internet on commercial photography, 'Photography 2.0: The Business of Photography in the Web Era' will include active participants such as manufacturer Hewlett-Packard, portfolio software developer liveBooks, and calibration equipment maker X-Rite, among others.

Speakers include George Pitts, professor of photography at Parsons School of Design and former photography director of Life magazine; Brittney Blair, art director for Chicago magazine; and other photographer Bill Frakes of Sports Illustrated.

Each of the six half-day symposiums will include the "A Career in the Internet Age" lecture and "The Internet's Impact on Photography" roundtable discussion, followed by an evening reception.
