Turkey's most comprehensive photography fair, Photo Digital, will bring all elements of the photography sector as well as sector experts together for the sixth time from April 2-5. The fair, which takes place every other year, will continue to be a valuable platform for photographers, as it introduces new companies and the latest technological developments in photography. Moreover, the most distinguished feature of the fair is the international photographers who will come together in Istanbul for the first time to hold a workshop.
As a part of Photo Digital, 12 international and five Turkish trainers will organize a series of seminars, which has never been done before at previous fairs. The participants will receive theoretical and practical training, and photographers from the U.S, Macedonia, Poland, Romania, Hong Kong, Ukraine and the Philippines, who are listed among the top 10 photographers in the world, will offer training to all amateur and professional photographers. David Beckstead, who is among the top 10 photographers according to an American photography magazine; Cm Leung, the first Asian photographer to be awarded two grand prizes by Wedding Photography Association (WPPI); cinematographer Bojan Mitkovski; Polish photographer Grzegorz Placzek, a world brand in wedding photography; and Lito Sy who won first prize at the WPPI's printing competition - the most prestigious wedding photography contest - stand out among the guests who will hold a workshop.
Photo Digital Project Coordinator Ümit Çelik said, "The organization holds an important place in the sector as it introduces new technologies to photographers." Photo Digital, which will host prominent brands and suppliers of the sector along with the latest photography technology, invites amateurs and professionals who are interested in photography, digital scanning and printing systems to attend. Organized by the Messe Stuttgart for the sixth time, the event will host more than 160 stands at the CNR Expo Fair Center in Yeşilköy. "As the second most important photography fair in Europe following the Photokina Fair in Germany, Photo Digital is a place where collaborations and purchases peak. Those who want to make new deals and connections will be happy to hear that we expect visitors from all over the world thanks to the promotional campaigns conducted by Messe Stutgart's agencies in 42 countries," Çelik said, adding the organization is also important to setting the trends in the sector for the future.
