Article in Professional Photographer Magazine

Professional Photographer Magazine January 2015 Cover

A few months ago Jaren Wilkey was asked to write an article on the BYU Wireless Workflow for Professional Photographer Magazine, which is the official magazine of the Professional Photographers of America. Jaren explain how BYU Photo uses wireless transmitters to post sports photos to social media in real time, which is a system that many photographers are interested in duplicating. The worst part about having your photos or stories appear in a magazine is the wait for it to come out, but the wait is finally over and the article is now live.  Check it out on their website at let us know what you think!
