Photofairs Shanghai is currently Asia’s largest commercial photography event, and the New York event will be based on the same idea. The fair is described as being “a new contemporary art fair dedicated to photo-based works, digital art, and new media.”
At the P&I Shanghai International Wedding Photographic Equipment Exhibition Godox were showing off some new toys, including a powerful 600 Watt Bowens mount LED light with external ballast. The show was actually in July, although the photos from the show seem to have only just come to light.
The images were posted as part of a series to the website Wakwb, which appears to be some kind of blog or social network based in China. Most of the images show the Godox stand and the usual equipment we’re familiar with, but two of them showed a Godox M600D light and what appears to be an M600D-CL ballast and controller.
Photography and video conferences. Are they dead? Are they going to happen this year? Is it kind of the nail in the coffin for conferences? Because they were sliding before. Where exactly are they at? What’s going to happen and what can you expect coming in 2021 and 2022?
Between the After Effects and Photoshop announcements and now this, it seems to have turned into Adobe day around here, but Adobe has now opened up registration for their annual Adobe Max event for 2021. Due to the global pandemic, the event is being held online again and registration is completely free.
Announced earlier in the year, the event is happening from October 26-28th. Amongst the speakers are YouTubers, filmmakers, video editors, photographers, graphic designers and a bunch of other creative artists we can absorb knowledge and inspiration from.
The Consumer Electronics Show (CES) is back in the real world! After the 2020 pandemic extended well into the current year and made CES 2021 an online event, the next year’s CES is scheduled to become an in-person event again. In January next year, we’ll be able to meet up and have real hugs and handshakes at the world’s largest tech conference.
It’s been a sad tale over the last few years for Photokina. After their last great show in 2016, it was announced in 2017 that Photokina would be shrinking in size and duration and shifting over to an annual schedule from 2018 and a new month from 2019. Well, they still had their show in 2018, but then 2019’s show didn’t happen, and neither did 2020’s (for obvious reasons), ultimately resulting in Photokina calling it quits and deciding to end the show for good.
Now it seems that there’s a newcomer to Europe’s photography show circuit, also taking place in Germany, in the form of Phototopia. Unlike Photokina, which was in Cologne, this new show is happening in Hamburg, according to their website, and the first event is planned for September 23-26th, 2021.
If you’ve been looking forward to 2021 to start attending trade shows again, we’ve got some bad news. CP+, the largest trade show in Japan, will be held online only. Looks like the pandemic is already extending into the next year.
