Two Fantastic New York City Photo Events on 9/24/2015, Plus Upcoming Events in Toronto and LA

On Thursday, September 24, 2015, there will be two big photo- and imaging-related events happening in The Big Apple. Both are free to attend, though some seminars at the first event are fee-based (about $12 per session). Below are the details:

FIRST EVENT: The Stand Out! Photographic Forum

Screen 2015-09-22 at 3.17.43 PM

Date: Thursday, September 24, 2015
Time: 9:30am – 7:00pm
Location: Hudson Studios, New York City
Overview: This event is a combination trade show and series of seminars by some incredibly talented photographers and photo industry leaders.

Owners of medium format cameras can have them cleaned for no fee if you register in advance on the website. Mamiya Leaf and Phase One camera system owners can have their equipment both serviced and cleaned for no charge.

For more information or to register for either the trade show (free) or a seminar (about $12 ea), Visit This Page.

On that page, you will also see information about other Stand Out! Photographic Forum events happening in Toronto (9/29/2015) and Los Angeles (10/15/2015).

SECOND EVENT: Synchronized Swimming in Times Square, NYC
EpsonSwimmingInInkm1

Date: Thursday, September 24, 2015
Time: 9:00am – 5:45pm
Location: North end of Times Square between 46th and 47th Street, and Broadway and Seventh Avenue (next to the TKTS ticket booth).

This free event, called “Swimming In Ink,” looks like it will be a great opportunity to experience something rarely seen in the middle of New York City. The U.S. National Synchronized Swimming Team, sponsored by Epson and Staples, will perform a series of synchronized swim routines in a 17,000 gallon swim tank...I hope it’s heated :). The swimmers will be performing hourly in swimsuits printed by Epson dye-sub printers. The 2016 Olympic Synchronized Swimming Duet will also be in attendance.

The athletes will also be available for autographs and photos with attendees throughout the day. If you can’t be there in person but if you’d still like to see the event, performances will stream live at www.epson.com/SwimmingInInk. The event is being produced in part to highlight the arrival of Epson’s new family of innovative EcoTank printers.

QUICK TIP FROM ANDREW

I should note that it’s very easy to attend both events. I recommend checking the seminar schedule first (you can find it here), then find some time to see at least one of the performances in Times Square.
