Photo & Film Expo

The market has been flooded with creative businesses popping up, especially in the photography & video industry. Gear has become more affordable and through workshops people have acquired the necessary skills to start shooting events. The ones without any business background struggle to put the pieces in the right order to succeed. From Freelancer to entrepreneur is a workshop filled with important tips and tricks to make your creative start up  or existing creative business a success. Join me on my talk at the Photo & Film Expo at the Samsung Main Stage on Thursday, 11:30.

The 6th annual Photo & Film Expo takes place from the 30th October – 2nd November this year. The event has grown into (by far) the largest event in any photographers diary on the African continent. With well over 20 000 attendees in 2013 and amazing feedback from visitors, we can only expect even more visitors in 2014.

  • I have never been to the Photo & Film Expo before! I would LOVE to go! When I started out in photography, I vowed to learn everything there is to learn about photography. Althouhg I have come along way, the industry and technology is progressing so fast, that there is something to learn every time one buys a photography magazine or go on the internet. One is never fully knowledgable on everything in your pro field. I want to expand my horizons and also share with others the knowledge I have aquired over the years…..when you share, you grow, not only as a photographer, but also as a person.

    2013 was my first P&F expo. I only attended Saturday and Sunday sessions. Attending workshops around the hour and completing a basic/intermediate course the year before was the 2 best decisions I made! I’ve since enjoyed my photography more than ever! I’m looking forward to meet the new faces, learn once again from the experts and have a fun time shopping with all the specials!

  • The timing of this year’s expo is great, as I will be going full time with my business from the end of October this year! Would love to attend your workshop.

  • I have been so busy this last while and I actually thought the Expo was last weekend. I was so bummed that I “missed” it. Then when the dust settled I realized my mistake. Felt like a total idiot. The weekend of the Expo is the only weekend for the rest of the year that I wont be shooting anything. So I am totally going. Some passes would be the cherry.

  • Surobinda Mallick says:

    I am a regular visitor to Photo and Film Expo. It is a great place to collborate photographers work to a market place. This gives a huge opportunity for amature photographer to get connected with pro, get and share knowledge. And the best place to buy gear at discounted price. Joping to gather some outstanding knowledge this time as well. Cheers, Surobinda

  • Looking forward to seeing the familiar faces of fellow togs and meeting new ones I only know from FB

  • Jessica Otto says:

    To be honest, not only do I love photography and is very eager to learn and excel, but if I do win, it gives me a reason for some me time and not feel guilty about it. I can drop off my 2 girls at the creche or with a family member and have some quality me time! I love them both but that would be awesome!

  • I’ve been doing photography for a few years now, but I’ve never managed to go to the Photo and Film website since I always had shoots booked… This year, it was one of the first events I marked in my diary and I made sure that I have the time off to go – can’t wait to listen to the speakers and just be inspired, not to mention all the show specials!
