Museums, universities, and institutes have provided airplane tickets to countries all around the world to bring public lectures making available the high-resolution photographs of FLAAR. Our experience in technical photography also resulted in Dr Nicholas Hellmuth being hired as a digital imaging consultant for historical cultural heritage on the Island of Malta. Hellmuth was asked to be a guest visiting professor at Japan’s National Museum of Ethnology already in the late 1990’s. At the bottom of the present web page is a list of the universities and museums and clubs such as Rotary Club that have wanted to have their members learn from FLAAR’s experience in digital imaging, archaeology (iconography, cosmology, art history and architectural history) and in the recent decade, also in Neotropical flora and fauna.

FLAAR has PowerPoint presentations available for your audience on diverse topics. Hellmuth can lecture in English, Spanish and German, and is used to simultaneous translation in Asia, Middle East, and around the world.

Although we prefer to meet your audience in-person, we have also begun ZOOM presentations (and can adapt to other platforms as well).

Lectures for museums

We come from the world of museums so it is natural that we enjoy giving public lectures at Museums. FLAAR has been asked for lectures at museums in Tokyo, Oaxaca (Mexico), Guatemala City (both the national museum and at the Museo Popol Vuh), St Louis Art Museum, St Louis Historical Society, Dallas Museum of Fine Arts, Denver Art Museum, etc.

 


Lectures for trade shows

FLAAR has been invited to speak at trade shows in

  • GraphExpo, Chicago, every year going on three years now.
  • Sign Africa 2008.
  • FESPA Mexico 2008.
  • Twice at different trade shows in Istanbul.
  • Gulf Print ( Dubai, 2007).

Lectures for conferences

Dr Hellmuth has been keynote speaker as well as a regular speaker at conferences and workshops.

Lectures for printer manufacturers and/or distributors

  • Nicholas gave the presentation lecture for the new Mimaki UV flatbed printer two days in a row when this new technology was introduced in Europe (December 2006).
  • FLAAR was the featured speaker in Seoul, Korea for the launch of the IP&I Cube 1606S and 1606F UV-curable combo style flatbed printers.
  • Dr Hellmuth is also occasionally asked to lecture by manufacturers for their distributors and dealers, to introduce their new printers, new software, or new features. These are generally private, and often under NDA (confidentiality agreement), since these meetings often discuss next year’s technology that has not yet been formally announced.

 

Workshops

We have organized workshops in Cincinnati and one in Seoul, Korea. We did a three-day workshop in Athens, Greece. Also, the FLAAR workshop in Novosibirsk, Russia. Novosibirsk translates as "New Siberia".

You can download any workshop PDF.

During five years at Brevard Community College we had a Maya archaeology symposium every year. This attracted people from all over the US, from Japan, and Europe.

Lectures for Printer Expos, Open House events, Conferences

Dr Nicholas has been flown to Korea, China, Taiwan, Japan, South Africa, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, EU, Malta, Mexico and Panama to share his knowledge and two decades of experience in digital photography, scanning, and especially wide-format inkjet printing (UV-curing, textile, fine art giclee, décor, etc.).

(In other words, he works on a lot more than archaeology, iconography, ethnobotany, zoology, and ecology). Very easy: a capable team assist him in each of these fields (a total of 20 individuals). All these digital imaging aspects are utilized in flora and fauna research and preparing material for local schools in Guatemala. Plus, handling all these topics is possible because he does not need a hobby, since everything he does he enjoys exploring. So his entire time is focused on research, field work in remote biodiverse ecosystems, and preparing reports.

For lectures on inkjet inks, cutters, textile printers, etc. often printer expos and Open House events, and companies that wish consulting assistance from FLAAR-REPORTS also fly over Pablo M. Lee and/or Maria Renee Ayau and/or Jose Melgar since each of them also have more than a decade experience in the world of wide-format inkjet printing and workflow (RIP software, cutters, etc.). Some entities fly several of us together as a team. Or they select the specialist for the specific topic on which they wish expertise.

To book Dr Hellmuth for your next event write FrontDesk symbol FLAAR.org We assume you can close the space and add the correct symbol.

During COVID it is best to send e-mail since people at not always at the office. As soon as COVID is over and we reopen the office, it will be easier to answer the phone. In the meantime, please use e-mail; this we check every day.

We can also do presentations via ZOOM; this eliminates airfare cost but a lecture fee is appreciated since our designers will be at their home offices preparing an updated edition of the presentation and Dr Nicholas will also be updating the text.
