Tickets for Photo Video West, the largest educational photography expo on the West Coast, are now on sale. The action-packed two-day event takes place April 27-28, 2013, at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in O’Brien Hall and serves as a forum for photographers of all levels to learn, share, network, and expand their photographic abilities, said Ken Lost, co-producer of Photo Video West.
Previously known as Photo Expo West, the new-and-improved event returns with an added focus on videography, printing, framing, and mobile imaging. Part educational, part expo, attendees of Photo Video West have the opportunity to gain valuable education from the industry’s top professionals, while exploring today’s best brands, watching live interactive demos, and taking advantage of product specials on the showroom floor. Additionally, the show will offer portfolio review sessions, allowing photo enthusiasts an opportunity to have their work reviewed by a trained professional on the spot. Appointments for portfolio reviews must be made in advance through the expo’s website.
Photographers also have an opportunity to enter the event’s World Cup of Photography photo contest presented by ScanDiego and hosted by Werner Publishing, which takes place January 15 – March 31, 2013. The international photo contest gives photographers from any country worldwide the opportunity to compete in the Professional or Amateur division.
