As a conference and trade show photographer in Los Angeles, I was delighted to document keynote speaker Victoria Alonso, vice president of film production for Marvel Studios, and the producer of the Iron Man, Avengers and Thor films, as she spoke to a a packed house at the 2019 SIGGRAPH Conference and Trade Show Expo. Positioned between a Black Widow costume and part of the Iron Man helmet, Victoria provided those in attendance with with and intelligence, along with stories about how she attained such incredible success. Of particular note to me was when Victoria said, "My mother was a strong woman. She said, 'If it has been done before, you can do it. If it has not been done before, you must do it.'" Victoria was generous with her time and ideas, taking care to share her ideas about how to climb the ladder and succeed in the film industry.
