Speaks about: Photography, India, Inspiration, Adventure, Motivation & Success

Sephi Bergerson, a world-renowned documentary photographer, cultural explorer, author, and TEDx speaker, brings over 35 years of experience to the table, with more than 22 of those years spent in India. His journey from a new country to becoming an industry luminary is nothing short of inspiring. Spanning humanitarian assignments, corporate ventures, industrial projects, photojournalism, and wedding photography, Bergerson's expertise is extensive. Notably, he made history as the first to shoot a full Indian wedding on his iPhone.

As the author of "Behind The Indian Veil - A Journey Through Weddings In India" (2015) and "Street Food Of India" (2010), Bergerson's contributions to visual storytelling are significant. Moreover, he is the visionary behind the SILK INSPIRE festival, India's premier Wedding Photography Conference.

What sets Bergerson apart is not only his proven speaking prowess and profound subject matter expertise but also his ability to captivate audiences. He is committed to delivering actionable insights that empower individuals to succeed, accomplish more, and maintain a positive mindset. Above all, his goal is to provide value to every attendee, respecting their time and investment in attending his presentations.

Recognized as one of the "10 Most Influential People in Photography" by Asian Photography magazine, and a member of the Indian Speaker Bureau, Bergerson's passion for storytelling shines through in his engaging presentations. Isn't this what you want from your speaker?

Audio Visual Setup and Requirements

Video requirements

I use a MacBook Pro for which I have HDMI adaptors. For most meetings a standard projector and screen is fine, or large flat screen TV.
I have a “clicker” to change my slides, so for most presentations my laptop can be near the projector. I don’t need it on stage with me, and I prefer not to have a podium so I can walk the width of the stage/room.
A large flat screen is fine for small groups, trainings and mastermind meetings.

Audio/Microphone requirements

For any group over 20 people a PA system with wireless lavaliere or headset microphone is required. A secondary, wireless handheld microphone, is helpful for announcements and audience participation, especially in larger room setups.
I usually don’t have any sound coming from my laptop, but please check with me first as, depending upon the presentation, there may be a video or other sound needs.

Audio Recording

I sometimes do an audio recording of my presentations using a small, digital recorder. I’ll bring the necessary cables to connect to the sound board. If you’ll already be making an audio/video recording (with prior written authorization, of course), we can arrange to get me a copy instead.

Room Setup

Conferences & Workshops

For most presentations I prefer classroom style setup (narrow rectangles) so participants can take notes. If you don’t have classroom tables then banquet rounds are fine as long as they are only set halfway around, so no one has their back to the stage/screen.

For large conferences, classroom is preferred for longer presentations, or where attendees will be taking notes. Otherwise, theatre style seating is acceptable.

For small groups (12 or less), including small mastermind groups, a boardroom setup is fine (one, large table with a large TV or screen and projector at the front).

Display Table

Where possible, I’ll need a table to display my books. A 6 foot, draped table is fine. It should be placed in the presentation room in an area of high traffic (near the front of the room, neat the door, near the coffee, etc.).

If you have any questions about room set up, please contact me via email, text, use the short form on this page, or call 91.98233.51221.

Sephi Bergerson is not only an accomplished professional photographer with a wide ranging reputation, he is an excellent speaker who is able to well and fully translate his storied experiences as a shooter to an audience. He is a compelling presence onstage, is able to command attention through a mix of good storytelling, humor, emotion and insight.

I worked with Sephi on the SILK Inspire conference and his professionalism matches his amazing work. He has a dedication to helping other photographers, experienced and new, because he understands that raising the quality of work across the board helps everyone. The emotion in his photography shows that he gets into the soul of each event, and having him teach that from the stage can only help an audience find their unique style and purpose
