Calling all big-shot (and wannabe big-shot) photographers: if you live in the NYC area, or are planning to be there October 21–24, make plans to visit us at the PDN PhotoPlus International Conference and Expo 2015.
PhotoPlus is the largest photography and imaging show in North America. How big is big? Check this out: over 21,000 professional photographers, photography enthusiasts, filmmakers, students, and educators from around the world are planning on attending this year. Now that’s a massive amount of photo firepower in one place. This year we’ve teamed up with Bay Photo, so look for us in their booth #554. Both SmugMug and Bay Photo will have awesome show-only specials and giveaways. So stop by the booth, flash your smile, and get your hands on the big deals and some serious swag.
Register before October 20 to receive a free pass to the Expo!
Looking for some creative inspiration? We’ve got that covered, too. SmugMug is proud to sponsor the one and only Renee Robyn at PhotoPlus. Renee is an incredible and inspiring photographer and composite artist. After a devastating motorcycle crash left her almost paralyzed, she turned to composite photography to let her imagination run free, and in the process, created surreal and mysterious images that get talked about and shared all over the world.
Renee will be teaching a master class and leading a photo walk for additional fees:
#1: Thursday, October 22, 4:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.—MC07-Upgrade Your Photoshop Toolbox
This master class will cover more advanced techniques to improve your already-existing process. Whether you retouch people or landscapes, or create composites, there’ll be techniques useful to many styles of photography.
#2: Friday, October 23, 4:30 p.m.–6:30 p.m.—PW28-Building Backgrounds for Composite Images
Join Renee on a photo walk around New York City, where she’ll show you how to capture useful and beautiful background images to incorporate into dynamic composites. The walk will cover lighting, perspective, camera angles, and creative problem solving for photographers who like to shoot their own background elements.
If you’re planning on being at the conference, go ahead and sign up for her classes right now.
Drum roll, please…And, for all you Renee Robyn super-fans, here’s one more reason to stop by the SmugMug booth (#554). At 1 p.m., on both 10/22 and 10/23, she’ll be on hand for a quick meet and greet. If you’ve ever wanted to meet Renee and bask in her creative energy, this is your chance—don’t miss it. Oh, and if you haven’t seen our recent SmugMug film on Renee, you can check that out right here.
We’re excited to be at PhotoPlus Expo this year, and we can’t wait to see you there.
