Shot Of The Day

The IADC Coffee Table Book

Announcing the Barcelona Coffee Table Book

In July of 2010, the International Association of Defense Counsel invited Kat to teach Purpose Driven Photography at their Annual Meeting in Spain. Members of the class received a crash course in composition, photo journalistic story telling and purpose. They were then broken into 10 groups and given a field assignment. Each group assignment covered a different aspect of Barcelona — food, architecture, history, local color, culture, sports & games, faith, etc… After several days in the field, the teams returned to the classroom for a round table discussion and Q/A session on the experience. The best images from each team were submitted for inclusion in a 13” x 11” professionally printed coffee table book and for awards in several categories. The results are stunning! Each chapter is rich with imagery representing a purposeful and well rounded picture of Barcelona. This was a truly talented group. Congratulations to the winners of the photography contest listed below. And thank you to Jim and Sue Campbell, Rebecca Zurcher, Mary Beth Kurzak and the International Association of Defense Counsel for keeping the practice of law balanced with family and fun activities, like photography!
