Catalyst Conference 2008



As promised, here's a bunch of shots I got from the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta, Georgia last week.

This guy cracked us up - we spotted him on our way in on the first day.



12,000 people - it was crazy!



Elevation REPRESENT! :)



The worship was awesome - Steve Fee kicked it off and totally rocked it.











Love this shot of Chris Brown.



The speaker line-up was great....

Jim Collins - author of Good to Great and Built to Last.



Seth Godin - marketing genius and author of The Purple Cow.



Craig Groeschel - Senior Pastor from LifeChurch.tv



As great as the above speakers were, in my humble opinion, none could top our Pastor - Steven Furtick.

Here he is with Chunks prior to stepping on stage to speak.













As mentioned, as soon as he hit the floor, the crowd erupted...and it was awesome. Right after hugging his wife - Holly - over came pastor of Newspring Church...Perry Noble. I was excited to get this shot, as I went to Newspring while working at Clemson. It's funny, as I never thought I would have found another church that could compare to Newspring - until we discovered Elevation.



There was also a lot of entertainment in between speakers.









Apparently this guy is Robert Muraine - popper from "So You Think You Can Dance".



And Switchfoot performed...



To end - I thought this was a cool shot of pastor speaking and had fun with some textures in the post-processing.

Absolutely beautiful photography! You got some truly amazing shots! Could I have permission to use some of them on my blog if I link back to you and keep the copyright info?

I had the chance to be at Catalyst again this year (my 4th time) and was challenged and encouraged as always. It's always so encouraging being around other leaders and seeing what God is doing in His church around the world.

What session impacted you personally the most?

Cheyenne these are awesome!!! So funny that you posted about this b/c someone just recommended this church to us. We haven't found one that has compared to our home church in Michigan! :(

Thanks for sharing
