Good Evening Everybody,
You guessed it, things are hopping around here with PhotoPro Expo 2012 kicking off on Thursday and still a few loose ends to wrap up. Speakers and judges begin arriving tomorrow and the Expo Print competition kicks off Thursday morning. The best photographic learning opportunity is only minutes away!
Here’s A Quick Expo Update
The Expo Trade Show, as I said, is sold out with nearly 90 occupied booth spaces! But look at all the other fantastic learning opportunities taking place in the trade show:
Four Speed-Lighting Clinics
Be sure to come by the trade show to hear speed-lighting clinics, 4 of them, by master speed-lighter and best selling author, Syl Arena.
PhotoPro Expo Help Desk
Next plan to stop by the Help Desk to have all those nagging questions about Lighting, Photography, Photoshop, and Lightroom answered. On hand to answer your questions will be master photographer, Scott Walz and my “Ace #1 Assistant”, Nickolas Viltrakis.
I’ll also be on hand doing Lightroom 4 demos. Jonny, from OnOne Software may be stopping by to show you a few of the latest, greatest features of OnOne’s widely acclaimed newly released Perfect Photography Suite 6.0
Westcott Fantasy Model Shoot Out
I’m firming up my guest speaker list for the Westcott Fantasy Model Shootout. In addition to building a great portfolio you’ll also have an opportunity to watch, hear, and learn from top industry leaders. The Speakers so far are:
- World renowned wedding photographer, Jerry Ghionis
- Besting selling photography author Scott Kelby
- Top commercial shooter, Joel Grimes
- Disney photographer, Rick Ferro
- Local high school senior shooting sensation, Craig Weiglein
Coach’s Corner: Image Review and Critique
Although Coach’s Corner is now full, keep it in mind for next year. This is your opportunity to spend "one-on-one" time with a Master Photographer. Attendees are invited to bring up to 10 portfolio images to be reviewed by one of PhotoPro Expo print coaches. These may include images in an album, on an iPad or actual images 8x10 or larger.
Folks, when you add everything up - it’s an unbelievable photographic learning opportunity you want to miss!
Hey gang, before I sign off today let me tell you about an extraordinary experience coming your way on Thursday. We are going to be streaming the PhotoPro Expo Print Competition “LIVE”. That’s right you can be there right with the competitors images and the judges seeing the images and hearing the judge’s critiques and comments.
I’m still working on the details but I will have all the links in place and the log-in information posted by tomorrow at noon. Be sure to stop by tomorrow and register. It’s FREE and it’s coming to you from the PhotoPro Expo Print Competition on Thursday, February 2. I hope you’ll take some time to tune in.
