Join Westcott at the annual PhotoPro Expo at the Northern Kentucky Convention Center located just outside of Cincinatti, Ohio. Held from Thursday, February 6th through Monday, February 10th, the 2014 PhotoPro Expo is the largest photography trade show and convention in the Midwest.
Westcott will be hosting a live Hollywood Model Shootout, promising to be a highlight of the ProPhoto Expo. Four separate shooting bays will be arranged on the tradeshow floor. Each specially themed shooting bay will be equipped with a complete Westcott lighting set-up and a stunning model to compliment each theme. Bring your cameras and take the opportunity to experience the Westcott lighting systems and add an image or two to your own portfolio. Prizes will be awarded to the shootouts best contenders, including an Ice Light, Apollo Orb, and a Modern Vintage Backdrop. Top Pro Rick Ferro will be hosting an educational presentation on lighting and posing in the Hollywood Model Shootout area as well.
The PhotoPro trade show will feature over 100 booths from industry-leading photography equipment producers where attendees can learn the latest about new gear, watch demonstrations, and ask equipment questions. An affordable lunch will even be provided on the trade show floor.
New this year is the Expo Theater, which will feature the best of the best in the industry. Speakers will include Westcott Top Pros Jerry Ghionis, Blair Phillips, and Jen Rozenbaum among many other photographers. These professionals will be educating attendees on topics ranging from lighting and posing to image editing. There will also be two full-day master classes featuring Top Pro Jerry Ghionis and photographer Richard Sturdevant.
This event will also feature a Coaches’ Corner, giving you the opportunity to spend “one-on-one” time with a Master Photographer. You are invited to bring up to 10 portfolio images to be reviewed.
