TEDxRedmond - Stephanie Engle - What Is a Picture Worth?

Sixteen-year-old Stephanie Engle taught herself photography at age 11 by examining the methods of Ansel Adams and Patrick Demarchelier. She gained in skill to the point where adult photographers chased her out of the horse shows she photographed as the photos she sold compromised their business! From selling 8×10's for $10 apiece and her contracts to photograph ad campaigns in national equestrian magazines, Stephanie raised $10,000, which she donated to For the Love of Patricia, a Guatemalan orphanage. After finally visiting the children she has supported over the years at the peril of her own life, Stephanie was inspired to create a coffee table book of her photographs of both the orphans and the kids who lived in the dump. The proceeds from this book will improve the children's living conditions and education, and eventually, support politicians who believe in orphan rights. Today, she continues her advocacy through her non-profit organization RAISE.In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
