The largest photographic event to be held on African soil returns in October – the Photo and Film Expo 2013 promises to be the biggest and best event to date.
With more exhibitors than ever before, showcasing (and selling) more photographic and film related products and the best possible show specials, this is the ideal opportunity to upgrade your gear.
Attendees get free access (on a first arrival basis) to over 100 workshops and demonstrations at the event. Be sure to arrive first to secure your spot at one of the numerous workshop areas or get to a demo area and watch a live shoot take place, from start to finish.
There are dedicated workshop areas with unique presentations outlining all the major features of the latest software, techniques and more, a ‘strobist’ area where minimalists and gadgeteers hang out, a full fashion studio setup, a wedding area, and numerous other demo areas.
This year a dedicated gallery area has been created where independent photographers can have their work professionally displayed at the event, plus expect to see the seventh leg of the very successful Photos For Hope charity drive hosted on the mezzanine level. Photo and Film Expo supported the first leg which raised R45 000 for The Sunflower Fund and the initiative has grown since then. Photographers are encouraged to continue to donate images – visit this link for submission details.
The Photo and Film Expo has become renowned for the incredible giveaways that attendees to the event have a chance to win so watch this space. Tickets can be bought online, here.
