Catalyst Conference Photos with Furtick, Godin, Groeschel, and Collins

Catalyst Conference in Atlanta

I am still trying to process the amount of information that was presented at Catalyst on Thursday and Friday.  Saying I was blessed by being there is just making a statement that doesn’t do the Lord justice, and only scratches the surface of what I was able to take away from Catalyst.

Not only was I blessed by the absolutely incredible worship music and some of the best speakers in the country, I managed to meet several other outstanding photographers who were hired to shoot the event.  I have never been around a group of artists that were more accepting (basically of an outsider to the event) and wiling to share their limited space with me, and in such a professional manner (thanks to all of them I met over the two days).

Long before this week, I really felt God had opened a door for me with Catalyst (although I didn’t know what) through a series of events over the last 6-8 months.  Of course it wasn’t through door A (knowing the right people and actually being hired to do a shoot), it was door B, just show up and use the gifts God gave me to create as best I could.  Several times I almost didn’t go, even as late as Monday before Catalyst.

So I went to Catalyst with the intent to cover the event photographically as if I was hired to do so, even though I never could get a hold of the “right” people.  Regardless of where it goes from here, I was deeply blessed by the event in total, and thrilled with the contacts I was able to make while I was there.  It was a God sized thing.

Above are just a few I photos I grabbed from Thursday.  I haven’t had a chance to even go through a small part of the images in total.  Some will be posted here on my blog over the next few weeks.  The four speakers photos shown above are: Steven Furtick, Seth Godin, and Craig Groeschel, Jim Collins, shown in that order.  I wish I could have instantly memorized their sessions as they spoke, they were are incredible.

  1. Scott – Your photography is making me sick to my stomach man. Amazing shots…I am so extremely jealous of your equipment. (insert a “that’s what she said joke here”)

    Keep up the excellent work!!

  2. Fantastic pics Scott! Made me feel like I was there. Even more fascinating IMO is the picture being painted by how each one uses their hands. Pictures like these really are worth more than a thousand words.

    You were just prayed for!
