In 2009 Michael Britt, Lou Lesko and Tom Stratton launched PhotoCine News to present an independent and irreverent perspective of photography and filmmaking. In 2010 they produced the PhotoCine Expo, the only DSLR Filmmaking expo of the day. It was a fabulous ride, but the time came to put his puppy to bed and move on to other wonderful things.
Michael Britt is veteran of the movie industry having worked as a stills photographer on movie sets for more than a decade. He was the founder of a cutting edge digital photography services studio based in Los Angeles. He was also the creator of the Collision Conference which was the first conference of its kind that addressed the collision between photography and video. That conference eventually became PhotoCine Expo. He is also a sought after educator and works as the head of education for Samy’s camera. He currently lives in Los Angeles.
