At the Wedding & Portrait Photography International (WPPI) conference 2012 in Las Vegas, Catherine is joined by 8 industry experts and insiders to convene on the controversial subject, "Is Technology a Menace to Photography?"

The luminary-studded panel featured renowned photographers such as Pulitzer Prize winner Greg Gibson, celebrity photographer and Help-Portrait creator Jeremy Cowart, reDefine host Tamara Lackey, Fast Track Photographer educator Dane Sanders, legendary wedding photographers Cliff Mautner and Jerry Ghionis, hot emerging fashion photographer Lindsay Adler, and glamour queen Sue Bryce.

They engaged in a heated discussion about topics, such as the too-easy lure of technological gimmickry to smooth over lack of artistic know-how; self-education and cultivation of a unique creative vision with responsible and mindful use of technology; so-called "naive" art; the future of point-and-shoots and DSLRs in an age of camera phones; and the relevance of professional photographers over the coming decade.

Guests: Greg Gibson, Jeremy Cowart, Tamara Lackey, Dane Sanders, Cliff Mautner, Jerry Ghionis, Sue Bryce, and Lindsay Adler

Hosts: Catherine Hall and Leo Laporte
