I’ve just about recovered from three great days at the PhotoPlus Expo in New York City, Nov 2-4, 2006. I’ve been coming to the fall photo show for about the last 10 years (it has had a few different names over the years). The primary changes that I observed over about the last five to ten years has been the adoption of digital capture and digital output by the vast majority of professional photographers and photo labs/service bureaus.

The educational seminars I attended were outstanding, and the sheer number and variety of seminars was truly impressive. Some of the topics covered were digital workflow, retouching with Adobe Photoshop, inkjet printing, how to be successful in the fine-art world and how to market yourself better as a working photographer.
I also had some time to see many products on the show floor (or as I like to call it: The Photographer’s Candy Store).
Over the next few days I’ll be posting news and interviews in a series of podcasts, with links to some of the products I came across at the show. Stay tuned! If you weren’t able to make it, here’s an article from one photographer’s perspective (Steve Simon) which can be found on CreativePro.com’s site. I contributed a few paragraphs in which I covered some of the inkjet-related offerings at this year’s show.
Hello once again! I attended the May 19th opening of the Apple Store on 59th Street and Fifth Ave. in New York City and it was a very memorable visit.

Congratulations to Apple Computer on reaching the big three-o! I’ve been a longtime user of Macs (since 1984, to be exact) and I was fortunate to have been at Macworld a few months ago to capture this moment. In the image, Steve Jobs, Apple Computer’s CEO is on stage talking about Apple turning thirty on April 1. In the photo, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak are shown together, with the words April 1, 1970 above them.
