With more exhibitors than ever before, showcasing (and selling) more photographic and film related products and
the best possible show specials this is the ideal opportunity to upgrade your gear and get those accessories you
It’s also the only platform available to really get to compare a full product range and all the brands hands on.
Attendees get *free access (on a first arrival basis) to over 100 workshops and demonstrations at the event.
R200 gets you a weekend pass (limited) that allows you access for all 4 days so you don’t miss a thing, day
passes are available for only R80 (R40 for under 16’s and pensioners).
Be sure to arrive first to secure your spot at one of the numerous workshop areas or get to a demo area and watch
a live shoot take place, from start to finish.
There is a dedicated Adobe workshop area with unique presentations outlining all the major features of CS5 and
more, a ‘strobist’ area where minimalists and gadgeteers hang out, a full fashion studio setup, a wedding area,
and even a demo area inside a blow-up studio (worldwide debut at the PHOTO & FILM EXPO)!
In the 2 main arenas expect to be wowed by the biggest line-up of speakers yet, from international guest
speakers such as the world renowned Rufus Deuchler flying in from Italy to top local photographers like
Roger De La Harpe, Kevin Shoulder, Dror Eyal, Lou Coetzer, David Larsen, Brett Florens, David Rogers,
Deryck Van Steenderen, David Oosthuizen, Ian Mitchinson, Darryl Van Niekerk, Sean Nel, Mia Ziervogel,
Mike Tippett, Anton Van Niekerk, Brett Florens, Greg Marinovich, Jodi Bieber and many more… See full
schedule once completed at www.photofilmexpo.com
This year a dedicated gallery area has been created where independent photographers can have their work
professionally displayed at the event, plus expect to see the second leg of the very successful PHOTOS FOR
HOPE charity drive hosted on the mezzanine level. On the 16th July PHOTO & FILM EXPO supported the first leg
which raised R45 000 for THE SUNFLOWER FUND and we’re expecting the gallery at this second leg to be larger
and even better supported than the first. Photographers are encouraged to continue to donate images – visit
www.photofilmexpo.com/sunflowerfund.html for submission details.
