Nikon USA will equip 50 digital photography enthusiasts with digital SLR cameras (including the new D2H) for a photo shoot in Miami’s South Beach district during PhotoshopWorld 2003.
PhotoshopWorld Conference & Expo is the annual convention for the National Association of Photoshop Professionals (NAPP). The 2003 show will have over 60 educational sessions and 12 after-hours events for graphic designers, digital photographers, Web, and digital video professionals. There will also be an expanded expo hall for showcasing new product releases.
The Nikon South Beach Photo Safari will be held Monday, Sept. 29, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Participants will be sent out in teams of two with Jim Patterson, Photoshop User magazine’s digital camera guru, leading teams through the South Beach district for an afternoon of shooting professional models and Miami architecture. Nikon representatives will be on hand throughout the day to answer questions and share key techniques of digital shooting.
After the photo shoot, participants will gather at the Roney Palace Beach Resort for the second half of the workshop. Digital photography experts will review the best shots taken and share their secrets for working with 16-bit digital camera images in Photoshop. Final images from the Safari will be shown during PhotoshopWorld sessions.
Registration for the
Photo Safari is US$199. It’s limited to the first 50 participants — who must be PhotoshopWorld conference attendees.
PhotoshopWorld 2003 will offer conference tracks on Photoshop Creativity, Digital Photography, Productivity, The Web, Motion Graphics, Print/Prepress, and The Business Side of Photoshop. This year’s sessions will be taught by a staff of 25 instructors including Scott Kelby, Deke McClelland, Dan Margulis, Eddie Tapp, and others. Conference admission is US$499 on or before August 25 and $599 afterward.
