With the PhotoPlus Expo now a thing of the past, B&H Photo is filling that gap by bringing the inaugural BILD Expo to the Javits Center in New York City on September 6 and 7, 2023.
B&H says: “Bild is a gathering of creatives featuring presentations from world-class talents like Casey Neistat, Art Wolfe, Jenna Ezarik, and Ami Vitale, hands-on experiences and education, and a gear expo from leading brands like Canon, DJI, Nikon, Sony.
COVID was tough on in-person expos, so it’s great to see something like this back on the calendar. New York is also an excellent location for photographers! The last time I went to the PhotoPlus Expo, I spent several incredible sunrises and sunsets exploring the photographic opportunities that Manhattan’s famous skyline presented. During the middle of the day, when the light wasn’t as good, it was easy to get hands-on time with the latest new photography products and listen to talks by world-famous photographers. What photographer wouldn’t love to spend a day or two doing these things in such an exciting, vibrant city? Entry is free, but you must register beforehand.
Aside from offering a packed schedule of talks and access to all the latest gear, the Bild Expo website lists various other events and experiences, including photo walks, portfolio reviews, a historical camera museum display, and a Kodak 16mm film workshop.
