Shoot NYC Recap

Hasselblad and broncolor wrapped up another Shoot NYC event at La Venue on October 25 and 26, 2012. Shoot NYC has become a photography staple, a place where people can network, educate themselves on photographic tools, and foster a community with their fellow photographers. Free seminars and workshops ran both days and included a variety of topics ranging from how to create and maintain a photography business, to learning about key lighting modifiers and copyright information. These free seminars were incredible in terms of the quality of information, and our speakers spoke to packed rooms of eager photographers that wanted to enhance their photo businesses.

Sunbounce, Sun-Sniper, broncolor, FOBA, Kobold and Visatec products were on the show floor for anyone to get their hands on and use. Shoot NYC also featured new products including the broncolor Move 1200 L battery pack, the Hasselblad H5D, the Sunbounce Bounce-Wall portable flash accessory, and the Sun-Sniper Pro-II camera strap.

The new Hasselblad H5D was available to see for the first time since Photokina. Peter Stig, Hasselblad product manager for the H system camera, spoke about the new H5D, including its technical advancements and new product features.

A live shooting sets with photographers Franklin Thompson, Thomas Liggett, Gregor Halenda, Jodi Jones and David Perkins (with two dancers and a Ducati) were a main focal point. With an array of broncolor modifiers and Kobold HMIs, they played with light to create some amazing images.

The student event ran on late Friday afternoon with photographers/directors Chase Jarvis and Vincent Laforet, and was an informative Q&A session that spoke volumes on starting off as a photographer and following your dreams. “Rejection is another opportunity” and “don’t be incrementally better, be different” were some of the mottos behind the two. The students asked everything from “how to make it big” to “what was your biggest mistake,” and everything in-between.

And, let’s not forget, the infamous Flugoween Halloween party on Saturday night. After a long week of Shoot NYC and Photoplus, our team rallied together in our costumes and headed over to the event in Dumbo that was hosted with our good friends from Scheimpflug and Resource Magazine. There was an electric chair photo-op and enough food and beer to make anyone merry. Overall, it was a good time with good friends.

We are already looking forward to next year. Cheers!
