Why I will never miss a photography Expo…... #PhotoPrint+Plus
I have been in the photography industry for 16 years now and have gained exceptional knowledge
over the years. I am by no means the longest serving photographer but, I now have the necessary
experience to sit in the midst of seasoned professional guys in this trade.
Now that I am a photography tutor I am easily tempted to brush Photography Workshops away
but, recent events have proven this idea wrong.
Today I am going to share with you just 4 good reasons why YOU MUST NEVER miss any
Photography Expo or Workshop:
Learn Something New
No matter how experienced you are the moment you mix and mingle with new people or even the
same people on a different day you learn something new. Photography always has something new
in stock for you.
It could be the equipment which is consistently advancing, the techniques or even some simple
and easy photography tips. The most encouraging thing on attending these Expos and Workshops
is that some of these photography hints and tips come from “junior” photographers. It’s amazing
how they maneuver around some of the sophisticated cameras and gadgets now in our industry.
A workshop on a theme you have once gone through will even surprise you with the new things
you will learn there. The interaction among-st attendees and even the different views you get from
the question and answer segments at these Workshops/Expos will leave you drooling for more.
Networking is the best way to grow your business. Networking with similar minded people
exposes you to even better opportunities. People you share the same interests with will never get
bored chatting with you, neither will they hesitate exchanging business opportunities and business
ideas with you.
I have made it a point that every Expo or workshop I attend, I must get at least 2 contacts and it
has helped not only me but all of us grow our profession and businesses. I have managed to grab
many opportunities from the people I meet at photography workshops and have also managed to
create great opportunities as well for them. Business relationships and/or opportunities are created
on these Expos and Workshops. Information sharing platforms are created and potential partners
and ventures have been exploited.
Are you an Amateur in Photography?
No better opportunity will ever
knock on your door than attending a photography Workshop or Expo. Expo’s have been a spring
board to most photographers. Many amateur photographers have taken advantage of these Expos
to grow faster in to professionals. Senior professional guys disseminate information down to
amateurs for free, identify their weaknesses and point them out for improvements or even take the
amateur photographers to their studios or labs as interns.
If you are an amateur never miss this golden opportunity. It makes even more sense for students
as most workshops and Expos have lower entry fees for students.
Fun of It
As the old saying goes “All work
no play makes makes Jack a dull boy”. Taking time out of your daily routine will be very refreshing
and at times very exciting. If you are lucky to attend a workshop with fun loving people like the
forthcoming Q-PhotoProlab #PhotoPrintPlusExpo, then you will definitely enjoy yourself.
Photography is a creative art and you can show your creativity here. No answer is necessarily
wrong at an Expo which creates a friendly learning environment. And when the environment is
friendly and fun people tend to share more and get guidance faster….
I hope to share and learn with you at the 2016 Q-PhotoProlab #PhotoPrintPlusExpo from 14th
to the 16th of November. Get your tickets here to book your place at this year’s mother of all
photography workshops. Space is limited better be early than be sorry.
