Posted on 8/25/2015 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Over 4 days (October 21-24) attendees to this year’s PDN PhotoPlus International Conference + Expo at the Javits Center in New York City will have their choice of more than 100 seminars that include Photo Walks and Master Classes featuring the latest techniques and trends for photographers, filmmakers and digital imaging specialists.

This year’s conference seminars will span a broad spectrum of subjects in eight educational tracks including Lighting, Portraiture, Wedding & Events, Commercial, Editorial & Photojournalism, Filmmaking, Business & Marketing and Post-production. 

There will not be a great deal of information directed specifically at stock photographers, but on Fri, Oct 23rd at 10:15 am the Digital Media Licensing Association (DMLA) will sponsor a panel discussion on "The Changing World of Stock Photography." Panelists will include: Sarah Fix, Keren Sachs, Jacob Pastrovich, Lynn Goldsmith, Amy Steigbigel and Cameron Whitman. These people will discuss varied licensing approaches and business strategies and offer attendees practical advice that they can apply to their own businesses.

“Every seminar at PhotoPlus is designed to help photographers and filmmakers get better at what they do, and give them the tools to grow their business and their creative expertise,” explains Jason Groupp, Director of Education and Membership for the PHOTO+ Group. “Whether you are a seasoned pro or just starting out, the seminars at PhotoPlus offer programs for your skillset in an environment that is fun, thought-provoking, and inspirational.  We also offer several seminar formats including intimate classroom settings, and outside, hands-on learning labs using New York City as a backdrop.”

Attendees have several conference pass options to suit their schedules and budgets including a Full Conference Pass with access to all conference seminars over four days; a One Day Conference Pass with access to all conference seminars on a single day they choose; and A la Carte seminars, which may be purchased individually. Additionally, small group Photo Walks, and intimate Master Classes, led by some of the industry’s best photographers and educators, will add greater variety to the educational experience at PhotoPlus.

New – Young Adult Pass

The new PhotoPlus Young Adult Pass qualifies anyone between the ages of 17 and 25 to experience the PhotoPlus Conference + Expo at new, lower prices than ever before.  The Conference + Expo offers an all-inclusive learning experience for emerging pros, students and young adults interested in learning more about the art and craft of photography and the tools needed to pursue a career in the photo industry.

PhotoPlus will be followed on Oct 25 thru 27 by the Digital Media Licensing Association (DMLA) conference in Jersey City. For more about this conference see here.
