Digital Photography Photo Plus Expo
Greg and I made our yearly journey to Photo Plus Expo again this year to see what everyone had to offer. We want to thank all the readers who stopped to say hello when they saw us walking around the show. For those of you who don’t know what PPE is its where you get to see the latest and greatest offerings that the photo industry has. Anything from new cameras to accessories to albums and peripherals.
It is a great place to check out whats new, get your hands on some cool toys and ask questions of people who have answers. We stopped by the BlackRapid booth to do an interview with LaRae Lobdell which you can see in the video below. Greg and I ended up staying for almost two hours helping people find which strap is best for them. Honestly if you don’t have one of these straps the best thing I can say is find a store that sells them and try it on for yourself.
Another company that we are big fans of is ThinkTank Photo, they make some amazing and useful bags for Pros and consumers alike. We got a chance to interview Kurt Rogers who is one of the CO founders and great photographer. Check out Kurts interview below to hear the story behind how think tank photo got started and what is next from them.
A bunch of us went to the PDN BASH which was on the Intrepid which is a decommissioned war ship docked on the hudson. I was expecting a full on party with food, drinks and interesting things going on. Well, we all paid $25 to stand around for 3 hours, not eat any food and got advertised to. I honestly sent an e mail to PDN asking for my money back, I just expected more based on how they billed the party. I hope they take the feedback and try to do better next year.
Finally I want to thank everyone who came out to the FIRST FroKnowsPhoto Party. We had readers come in from Houston, Portland Canada and a few other really cool places. Everyone who came out to the party left with something cool and they know what that is. A big thanks goes out to LaRae of BlackRapid for helping set it up, Think Tank for sending give aways for the web site and AdoramaPix for giving away a $100 Photo Book.
Enjoy the video and maybe we will see you next year.
