I’m constantly getting asked who my favorite vendors are, not to mention I know there are a lot of photographers who follow me who don’t go to the big conventions. For these reasons, I recorded some short video interviews with some of my favorite vendors at the WPPI trade-show showing what new things were introduced.
Larson Enterprises (http://larson-ent.com) Maker of great soft boxes and reflectors.
White House Custom Color (http://whcc.com) My favorite lab and supplier of great print products too.
GraphiStudio (http://graphistudio.com) My personal album company of choice, made in Italy.
PocketWizard (http://pocketwizard.com) My radio sync brand of choice, has come up with a new and improved radio sync. What’s new with PocketWizard at WPPI? The NEW Plus III!
ProFoto (http://profoto.com) One of the absolute best brand of lights and a must for any serious photographer, Profoto gear is a joy to work with.
LensBaby (http://lensbaby.com) Meet Craig Stong, the man who personally invented and revolutionized the digital camera with the Lens Baby tilt-shif lens. What’s new with Lens Baby at WPPI? Cool new ‘Edge 80.’
