The PDN Photo Plus Expo is on at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City. Yesterday was the first day open to the public and it was really well supported. I can only imagine what today and tomorrow will be like. Like last year, Nikon, Canon, Sony, Bay Photo, Smug Mug, and Epson are everywhere. Not to be outdone is Blurb, the book people. Their setup is like a living room with beautiful white leather sofa. it is awesome. When you get tired you can sit and relax at Blurb. Also, they are giving you a 20% discount on your next book published with them.
Unique Photo out of New jersey was also very big. So too, Adorama our photo people down the block from superpower B & H Photo Video. B&H has shuttle buses for two days since they are closed on Saturday. The workshops are interesting and informative. The have brought out the top guns. Gary Fong is there, Manfrotto, Wescott, HP, PNY, Tamron, Sigma, OnOne Software, and many more. I found a company who makes something similar to a pocket wizard for less than half the price and it worked well when I tried it.
If you are a photographer, or even a tourist with a point and shoot camera, you will love Photo Plus Expo. It is epic. Tomorrow is the last day so get there early. Of course, apart from the general sessions and the booths, thee are seminars, lectures and even portfolio reviews. If you are serious about photography all roads lead to Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City this weekend. Get there today or tomorrow.
Enjoy the pictures from the Photo Plus Expo.
