PhotoPlus and Adobe
This was my favorite tradeshow thus far and a big part of it was because my buddy Frederick Van asked me to join up with Adobe and I got to do two presentations for them. The first one was a press event where they invited a dozen or so members from the photo publishing world and had myself and "The Photoshop Diva" Katrin Eismann give a demo on Lightroom. It was a new experience for me and kind of nerve racking but it went well and the next day at the Adobe booth went incredibly well!
Adobe doesn't mess around at these tradeshows and as you can see their booth is packed. It's such a great thing that they sponsor education right from the tradeshow floor so if you don't want to pay to go to the individual sessions you can go to the Adobe booth and hear tons of great info!
Here are some more fun pictures I pulled off people's blogs!
Me and my new friend Vatche from Prizma Productions who brought me these cool decorative masks from Lebanon. I love stuff like this because they are so beautiful and unique!
And the incredible Kristen Leigh! I just met Kristen at the show and she is such a doll. She just turned 18 and is already doing an amazing job growing her own business. See more fun pics on her blog.
My dear friends Amy Nave and Amber Holritz. Despite being sweethearts they also make sure that my big head doesn't expand too much at the shows. They've known me a long time and they keep me real. :)
Sarah Barlow and Becker! NON-STOP fun... There were a couple of times when I thought Sarah Barlow was literally going to explode because Becker had her laughing so hard.
Becker put me way on the outside of this wide-angle shot to try and stretch my head. He also hid my laptop at the reception and I thought someone stole it. I tried to get him back but it backfired...lol...you can ask Sarah or [b] about it.
On Friday morning I got up early for an interview with Scott Sherman who hosts The Digital Photography Show which goes out to 40,000 subscribers.
It was a lot of fun and I'll let you know when it's going to be sent out.
We talked about a bunch of different issues in the photo world both dealing with professionals and prosumers.
...and I'll leave you with a few more pics of me looking silly at the wedding and sporting my Britney Spears mic at the Adobe booth.
