Sony’s Artisans of Imagery Program | Amber Baird

Sony Artisans of Imagery Program

Amber Baird, Eyenamics

We are ecstatic to announce Sony’s Artisans of Imagery Program is sending the one and only Amber Baird of Eyenamics to present to us at The POSH Retreat Key Largo. Amber is a wealth of knowledge on Sony products. After seeing so many conversations in our Facebook group about “should I or shouldn’t I switch to Sony”, we felt it would be a great benefit to the attendees to get some first hand knowledge of the products from a kick ass female filmmaker.

Amber is one half the the filmmaking team Eyenamics. Together with her husband Garrette they have captured over 600 cinematic weddings and produced commercial work for almost 15 years. More recently they were honored with the distinction of Sony Artisans of Imagery and are excited to collaborate with such a forward thinking brand. Their balance as a couple insure creativity to capture and present those powerful moments. With their multifaceted approach of being analytical and emotional, these seasoned pros have been sought after to provide education for filmmakers at conferences such as WPPI, PhotoPlus Expo, Imaging USA and beyond. Elevating their craft and contributing to the industry, Amber and Garrette are the ones to watch as they push boundaries in wildly innovative ways, delivering wow factor to every film they create.

A HUGE Thank you to Sony’s Artisans of Imagery Program for supporting The POSH Retreat and sponsoring Amber to share her knowledge with us at The POSH Retreat Key Largo event!

POSH 2015 Presenting Sponsor SongFreedom

songfreedom logo

We are excited to announce that POSH 2015 is presented by Songfreedom this year! They are providing each attendee with a song licensing gift along with giving away a grand prize at POSH valued at $250!

What is Songfreedom? Is Songfreedom a music licensing platform with the best music available? Are they a place where photographers and cinematographers can come to find the perfect song for their story with the click of a button? Or are they just the ones that make licensing real music affordable? Yes, they are all of those things but mostly, Songfreedom is about artists supporting artists.

Songfreedom supports musicians by making sure they get the opportunity to give permission for the use of their music and by making sure they actually get paid for their work. Songfreedom supports photographers and cinematographers by going through the long, difficult, and expensive process of music licensing for us so we can license it easily and affordably.
