Hello once again! In this episode of The Imaging Buffet I interview Lauren Wendle, Publisher of Photo District News and PhotoPlus Expo. During the interview, Lauren shares with us some behind-the-scenes information about the three-day PhotoPlus Expo event that’s been running in New York City for the last 21 years. She also gives us a taste of what’s to come at next year’s Expo, including the dates of the 2007 show.

Mentioned in the intro to the show was the Trucker Tom podcast. I was recently interviewed by Tom for his podcast and here’s the link to his website.

Enjoy, and stay tuned for more interviews soon.

All the best,
Andrew D.

News: Canon’s PhotoPlus Expo NYC Booth Presentation Schedule

On Wednesday evening 11/1, just before the three day PhotoPlus Expo on November 2-4, I attended a press event and was given permission to post the following schedule of speakers. These photographers are scheduled to appear on the show floor in the Canon booth on the dates and times listed. Click on the graphic below to see a larger version.


I always look forward to these presentations because they usually feature working professionals who specialize in a variety of different kinds of work. Douglas Kirkland’s presentations are always particularly fun to watch, and I’ve learned a lot about lighting and how to work with models from him. I’ve also enjoyed and learned a lot from the trade show floor presentations by many others, including Robert Farber and Jack Reznicki, both of whom are speaking again this year.

Most, if not all of the speakers are Canon Explorers of Light. For a full list of the Explorers of Light, and a small gallery of images by each Explorer (including technical info and short quotes), visit this page. I think that the collection of work assembled on that website is stunning, and it’s in a layout that’s very easy to navigate.

Enjoy the show!
