The Photography Show 2016
Greetings from Birmingham!
We’re here at The Photography Show at the NEC in Birmingham and it’s been amazing so far.
Our stand is right near the entrance so there’s no excuse to not stop by and pay us a visit. Come and get your hands on the latest kit including X-Pro2, X-E2S and X70 cameras, and we’ve also got an elevated area where you can try out the XF50-140 and XF100-400mm long zoom lenses with X-Photographer Ben Cherry!

And we are live. Always a huge rush to get in at the start of the show.
People are able to borrow an X-Pro2 and lens for the day
Lots of people getting their hands on our products and talking to our helpful staff
Hands on with those long lenses
Very important to have a subject to shoot when testing out the cameras
Our range of instax instant cameras are also on display to try out.
Kevin Mullins did an X-Pro2 product demo to around 40 people. Each day at 11:30 we’ll have an X-Photographer doing the same.
Later, Kevin also spoke as part of The Photography Show’s “Turning Pro” masterclass, giving some great advice to photographers thinking about setting themselves up as a business.
And the Kevin-a-thon was rounded off with a talk on the Live Stage about his type of candid wedding photography. Kevin will be talking on the stage on Sunday as well
We rounded the day off with a photowalk around the NEC entitled “Abstract in the landscape”. Professional photographer Paul Sanders encouraged everyone to look for the finer details and less-obvious patterns to create artistic expression where it’s not obviously apparent. Practising in this way means that when confronted with something truly beautiful, photographers will have the ability to still look further to create something unique.
Here’s a few example shots from the photowalk
Come say hello!
The show is open until the 22nd March so please come and say hello. Our full schedule for the remaining days can be found here
