All I can say is...WOW! This past Friday, my friend Monica & I attended the PDN PhotoPlus 2007 Expo in New York City. It is considered to be the most comprehensive event in the photography & imaging industries. It is an innovative look into products from photography equipment to printing supplies to...you name it!! They described it like this..."the ever-changing world of photography & imaging comes into focus at PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo 2007 - the premier event for innovative imaging solutions, photographic education and unparalleled networking." And boy, was it that!
We had such an awesome day! Plus, lots of goodies from all of the exhibitors, discounts, freebies & an amazing look into what's "hot" in the photographic world. There were famous photographers speaking & showing their work (ahem...Friday night was Albert Watson...a huge celebrity & Vogue magazine photographer). The i.d. badges that we had to have to attend had a barcode on them so when we visited the exhibits, they would scan our barcode & we are entered into various drawings & will be forwarded important info., etc. that we use as resources, etc. We sat in on a few seminars of very successful & innovative photographers as they took us through an actual "photo session" from start to finish & product finalization. And Monica & I were chosen by one photographer to be "subjects" with some professional models in one photo session. (although...we looked horrible next to these pretty girls.) It was so fun & we are still laughing about it. Our photo session is online. Absolutely hilarious. :-) It is a 3 day event filled with tons of information, innovative products & an amazing resource to look forward to for serious photographers. We're in for next year!! :-) Cross your fingers...I hope to win one of the Canon cameras I put my name in a drawing for...haha.
