Photo Plus Expo in NY this year was buzzing for three days with excitement and inspiration as 40K people came through! It is such a honor to be a part of this event, especially when I get to share how awesome Sony has been and is!
I did nine talks (phew!) for the Sony booth, a special two hour workshop (warm thank you to all who attended), met a ton of new, wonderful friends,
reconnected with old, and shoot, even met blog followers and Nate Berkus fans in the airport!
I want to thank Sony, Photo Plus and all of YOU for making it such a special week!
On Thursday night, Sony and American Photo had an AMAZING party where Sony landed several awards for their cameras on American PHOTO magazine’s ’12 Tools That Changed the Rules’ Sony NEX-5,
NEX-VG10 & a55! (Yeah Sony!)
The night was AMAZING! There was a VIP Press Event, all six of us (the Sony Artisans of Imagery) had our work on exhibit, and 600 people packed the studio out! Below is the amazing Brian Smith (Sony Artisan) with his sweet and beautiful wife, Fazia. I spotted this pic on FB and had to grab it b/c I love them, and you can also see my work on display behind them! LOL! Check out Brian’s blog/portfolio when you get a chance. He does amazing work of celebrities. All the Artisans are just amazing artists and people. When I get a hold of our annual photo as a group, I’ll post it up with their names and links!
But one of the last surprise moments of the week was when I walked up to my gate Saturday night to head home, and Jim and Katarina Garner were on the same flight with me! Our flight had to land in Chicago b/c of plane issues, and the three of us kept each other awake and laughing till we got home in the wee hours of the morning. And no, there is no photo of the three of us, between Katarina and I crying from exhaustion…a photo moment was not part of our time. 🙂 But what would we do with out friends to laugh with!
I hope to see the rest of you there next year!
