    Hi All,

    Some huge news for us. Photrio is joining forces with Bob Carnie and Carissa Ainslie from Toronto-based Alternative Photo Services to present the inaugural Photrio Symposium in May.

    This four-day event is jam-packed with programming for photographers in various stages of their careers, with printing and shooting workshops and lectures covering a range of topics from fine art to commercial. The main focus of this event is education.

    Happening during CONTACT, we have incorporated two exhibitions as a part of the events.

    You can find further details throughout our main events site here: Dead Link Removed

    *Tickets will be available soon.

    Bob and Carissa have put together an amazing event, it has been an absolute pleasure working with them. Photrio.com will be following the event closely, providing news, updates, an event gallery and more.

    Additional details to come. Feel free to post any questions in this thread.

    Thanks!
    Sean

    Looks fantastic! Wish I could go, but it does not mesh with my teaching holidays unfortunately.

    I'm sure it will be a real treat for those that attend. Wish I could make it, but calves will still be hitting the ground.
     
  4. I would like to see a list of demonstrations, sessions, topics and speakers.

    Dead Link Removed has much of the program, though there are many TBAs, too.
     
  6. OK, I found the buttons on the top. Now for the TBAs to be filled.

    We are trying to engage speakers that can give us a well rounded approach to Photography. We are approaching many people right now and until we get each persons blessing they are not listed, I imagine within one week we will have 80-90% of our content finalized
    The first APUG conference in 2016 was the same way and we did have over 130 apugers attend ,

    Thanks Bethe, we plan to do this quite often with Sean's blessing, the Toronto event will be large as it is our home town and easy for us to manage, but we are hoping to make this a road show.

    One thing that is important , without an audience there is no show.... our experience tells us that this site in the past provided a base for us to work from, we know with 5 - 10 local colleges and universities
    we will get students, and as well the local art groups and associations will support us, not to mention our Sponsors help. This year we are very happy to have B3K onboard to give us the finances to book our locations.

    In a perfect world all the tickets will be pre sold for all the events... I think the workshops will fill as the photographers teaching them are really well known locally so they will fill fast. The main event hall will handle 200plus people
    I am sure we can fit you in last minute...
    You should try to put some of your work in the Lonsdale Show, this goes for many of you here, this show is all about what we do and I can vouch for many of you as serious long time workers. The Lonsdale show is a feature in Contact and is going up for 2 months, their goal is to have over 500 pieces of Alternative work =(includes silver- hint lith hint ) If anyone here wants to apply send me an email and I can introduce you to the powers to be at the Gallery.

  17. I have rarely been accused of being patient. Do you really expect me to change that?

    My tickets are booked for this, can't wait. I've also been working my ass off in the darkroom this past couple weeks making prints to apply to get into the show.

    To intice some of you to come we will be having artist talks where you get 15 min and then the hook comes out and drags you kicking and screaming off the stage.

    this is aimed at photographers currently or ready to start showing their work and doing artist talks.

    Artist Presentations
    Interested in speaking about your work?

    Each day during the symposium, the 2pm-3pm time slot is reserved for four artists to give brief 15 minute lectures about their work. The slideshows will be prepared in advance, and the time limit will be strict.

    If you would like to book a slot, please contact Carissa

    carissa@alternativephotoservices.com

    I can tell you from working with her Carissa is strict but fair...

    Sadly, I already have a conflicting event, and it's also our daughter's college graduation. So no go for us.

    However, I would encourage everyone else to go. Bob and Carissa are great hosts, and it's exciting to see a photo event for photographers!

    More importantly, will Bob and Dinesh be there, and in the same room together?
