More free stuff!
This week we want you to be aware that you can get free tickets to Exposure, a consumer photography show in Toronto at the end of this month. I went last year, and I think it cost me $10 or $15 to get in (I wasn't smart enough to get the free deal). Canon, Nikon, and a dozen or two other vendors of photographic equipment show up, carrying things as varied as photography bags and knapsacks to tripods and lighting equipment.
The main sponsor of the show is Henry's Photography the national camera chain, and they have a great feature where they sell all their demo and used equipment at trememdous price reductions. I didn't buy anything last year, so I really can't say whether it is best to get there on Friday, when selection is best, or Sunday, when they might start making better deals to clear stuff out. You are on your own with that one.
The other great feature of the show is that there is a nearly continual series of tutorial lessons given by famous and talented photographers. I sat through a great session by one of the Toronto Star photographers last year, and viewed some of the amazing shots he had created over the year.
The other treat is that Yours Truly will be attending the show. Lambton College Digital Photography has booked a booth for the show, and I will be manning it. Richard Beland, our photographic wizard will be in and out, but I should be there most of the time letting the Toronto market place know about the new program at Lambton.
Here is a link to the show web site. If it interests you, scroll down to the very bottom of the first page to get to the link to the free ticket.
I hope to see you there. It runs May 25 to 27.
