Wondering what The Big Photo Show was really like? Here’s your chance to find out. I had the very fun opportunity to interview a handful of the exhibitors at the show, and we have just posted a video of those interviews on Youtube. Taped during the event, held May 4-5 at the Los Angeles Convention Center, the video is now available at http://youtu.be/goBWF3_ck3c or you can watch it below.
Featured are John Bruehl from Sony; speaker Cheyenne Rouse from Cheyenne Rouse Photography; Ron Talley from Photographers and Digital Artists of Los Angeles; Christian Gaspar from the Los Angeles Photoshop Users Group; Lou Schmidt from Hoodman; and Dave Mason from McKenna Pro.
In the video, these exhibitors talk about their experiences at the event as it was happening, and how it compared to their expectations.
“We had a really great morning. We were so busy that we gave away about two days’ worth of material in our first two hours. We were really surprised by that,” said Dave Mason in his interview. “It’s…one of the busiest shows we’ve ever done.”
More than 16,100 advanced amateur photographers and photo enthusiasts attended The Big Photo Show, which was the first in a new series of photography shows for consumers from PMA. The event presented photography equipment from top manufacturers and retailers; an array of education sessions and workshops taught by some of the best professional photographers in the United States; live model shoots featuring themes like belly dancers, film noir and Star Wars; and creative innovations in framing and photo display.
The Big Photo Show will return to Los Angeles in Spring 2014. For more information, contact Jeff Frazine at firstname.lastname@example.org.
