I remember sitting at the Canon Stage listening to my heroes teach well over a decade ago. Each year I would go to Photo Plus Expo not to buy things (I had no money as I grew my business), not to walk the showroom floor (though I would explore the possibilities), but instead just to sit and soak up as much information as possible at the Canon and Adobe Stages. I’d claim a seat and just absorb.
I watched the Canon Explorers of Light with awe while I learned about lighting, gear, and watched incredible images flash up on the screen.
I’ve been teaching at PPE for several years now, but this year I’ll be the opening presentation on the Canon Main Stage. This year, I am one of those Explorers of Light!
(Photo Plus Expo details can be found here. )
I’d like to invite you to join me at the Photo Plus Expo for my many exciting events coming up this week. I’m going to share my detailed schedule of events, and I certainly hope you stop by to say hi!
I kick off the entire event by teaching a (free) class on In-Camera Creative Techniques with the Canon 5D Mark III at the Canon main stage and then continue full-force from there. This event is a lot of fun, and I hope you’ll be able to join in the fun!
Also, I’ll be doing a print signing of only 100 prints and I’ll be announcing that soon, so stay tuned!
