It’s the world’s biggest photo trade show and from 16-21 of September, the who’s who of photography descend upon Cologne. Here are seven reasons why you should be there:- Red Bull Illume exhibition – of course we had to include ourselves. Our exhibition is nearby at the Rhinepromenade, so swing by and meet a number of Top 50 finalists! Our limited edition Top 250 photo book will also be on sale at the exhibition. We’ll also be at Nord Boulevard A9/13 in photokina – this is the special ‘action’ area – so if you drop by, this is the zone you’re looking for! - Young photographers can look forward to finding out more about broncolor Gen NEXT – a new project where broncolor kits out talented young photographers with the best lighting gear for photography and videography. (broncolor can be found in 4.1)- Leica will occupy the whole of Hall 1 – as usual you can expect some interesting releases and an amazing exhibition! - Red Bull Photography will be presenting on the Community Stage on Tuesday 16th September at 11am. Come along and get a little insight into the shoots coming out of Red Bull.- Find out about the latest accessories from SUN-SNIPER & Sunbounce. You can be sure you’ll be able to handle the latest and greatest! (Both teams can also be found in 4.1).- Rumour has it there is a new Nikon designed purely for action sports photographers. Why not get a first glimpse?- Meet other action sports photographers – it’s a great chance to network and discuss the latest in photography. There will be a ton of live shoot demonstrations, talks, product releases and fascinating insight into the future of action sports photography! We hope to see you there!
