You might have noticed from my profile picture on this blog, as well as on Facebook, Twitter, etc., that I am a fan of Julian Cash‘s photography.
If you’re in the MySQL community, you almost certainly know his photography, both the “white background” style and “light painting” style. Julian took a bunch of photos of the MySQL community at conferences a few years ago, but the community has changed tremendously since then, and it’s time for a whole lot of new ones! I’ve asked Julian to come to the conference and take a bunch more photos of the MySQL community in his iconic “white background” style at the Percona Live MySQL Conference and Expo next week.
In order to be as inclusive as possible, we wanted this to be free for everyone getting their picture taken (come one, come all!) — however, to make this a success…
If you have the means to fund it1, it will certainly help; any amount helps! If you don’t, that’s fine as well, and you can absolutely come get your photo taken regardless. If you’re coming to the conference and want to get your photo taken with Julian, join the MySQL Studio Photos @ Percona Live MySQL event on Facebook so you can get updates about the location, schedule, and any changes.
See you there!
