Week of Oct 21 = Photo Events Galore

It's Photo Madness Week! I hope you rested over the weekend, because this week is ka-razy with events, including the biggie - PDN Photo Plus Expo and Conference.

  Here's a list of events to plan out your schedule. 

*** Update Oct 22 ***  I've added a couple more events at the bottom

  • PDN Photo Plus Expo and Conference (Oct 23-36): This one is MASSIVE. Like proper, overwhelming conference. Held at the Javits Center, it's gear, seminars, portfolio reviews, lots of SWAG. It's still FREE to register (Expo only) until the 22nd, so get on it! 
  • And there's happenings off-site as well like Leica's S-System events at Go Studios.
  •  shoot nyc (Oct 24-25): This is totally FREE! Thanks Hasselblad and Broncolor. Go for the talks. Beth Taubner of Mercury Lab is presenting a branding seminar on Friday. If it's anything like last year's, you'll gain a lot! shoot nyc is walkable from Photo Plus. And the free Hassy tote I got last year was way cooler than the generic Photo Plus one ;o)
  • Drinking/Parties: You'll need one after talking shop all day, even better that the drinks are free.  Digital Transitions 10 Year AnniversaryPhoto Plus 30th AnniversaryPhotoshelter & Agency Access Happy Hour
  • On Tuesday (22nd), AbelCine is hosting Beyond the Frame: Expanding the Language of Journalism Through Motion. VII photojournalists will be discussing how they use video to tell stories. 
  • On Saturday (26th) there's the Lucie Lectures  featuring Taryn Simon and Ricky Flores. The actual Lucie Awards ceremony is on Sunday at Carnegie Hall. Cocktail/black tie folks!
