Microsoft will once again be presenting at Photo Plus in New York City, the years’ largest pro and prosumer trade conference for photographers.  Over 30,000 photographers and digital imaging professionals are expected at the Javits Convention Center in New York City for three days of seminars, panel discussions, and the largest tradeshow expo in the event’s history…

 

 

Microsoft Pro Photo Community team is sponsoring seminars by the Microsoft Icons of Imaging and presenting a special panel discussion on Thursday, October 23rd that

brings together Joyce Tenneson, Phil Borges, and Matthew Jordan Smith for  Focus on People: Photographs that Raise Awareness .  Renowned New York Times Art & Photography critic and award-winning author, Vicki Goldberg has graciously agreed to moderate the panel discussion.  Last years event, ““Women Behind the Lens: A Female Perspective of Photography” drew a standing-room crowd of over 500 attendees and a larger crowd is expected for this year’s opening night event. 

 

 

Microsoft Expo Booth
New this year is a 20x20 booth on the Expo floor to promote and demonstrate the bundling of Capture One 4 and Expression Media 2.  The “Better Together” program will feature a schedule of live photo shoots with the Icons immediately followed by a RAW workflow demo showcasing the strengths of both programs.
