Over the last five years, I have attended at least three of these events. They come with varying degrees of promise. The seminars can be a hit or miss and at $80 a pop they are a bit steep for freelancers. But one does get to meet people, put faces to names, see some amazing photography and hope that one day you too can show off your work in that august space called the Jacob Javits Center.
I received a complimentary exhibit pass. I’ll report back here if I see anything of significance from the market. With everything going digital, I suspect there will be a slew of new doo-dads. With Christmas looming ahead, I bet this is a big selling season for merchants.
Tonight’s panel discussion, The War on Photographers, spear headed by Paula Lerner and Editorial Photographers should be a real treat. If you are a freelancer, I urge you to attend. It’s OUR future. It’s free. 6.30-8.00 p.m. Room# 1E15.
