Yup you put us in touch and I have all the details, thanks Bob.
@ Bob Carnie, IIRC it's been about 10 years since there was a symposium in Toronto. I have a couple of flickr pools one for film photography and analogue photography in Canada, plus two more for alternative and LF photography. Give me the nod and I'll post the event in those pools
Hi Jan - abosolutely please post in these pools we would greatly appreciate it.
On thing not mentioned but a % of net profits is going directly back to PHOTRIO to help build this site and by doing so the goal is to encourage more workers like us to join , contribute and learn.
We are going to be announcing a Silver Workshop component shortly to this Symposium... We are getting excited about the overall content of the workshop leaders and as well the Main Hub lecture Series.
Just added Mike Robinson,, Lorne Wolk and Robert Hill as speakers.
Would love to attend but I think that timeframe is all tied up.
Ticket Prices are live now and there is a Early Bird... by mid next week the full lineup will be live as well..
Are there any plans to try and set up a discounted rate with any hotels in the area?
That is something we can consider but frankly with Air B &B I doubt we can make anything worthwhile happen, but will look into it .
It's a shame this is right after the PPOC convention in Vancouver. Hopefully it'll be a huge success and I'll be able to make it out next year (also hoping it'll be in my neck of the woods again next year).
As we get closer , Sean, Carissa and I will be blogging, marketing, and basically pushing this symposium... We believe there is something here for anyone and in South Western Ontarian Slang... its worth the drive to Acton.
This is the event that launches the Symposium on Thursday evening., Wow all wet prints can you imagine, Wow people from this Site in the show, Wow a Feature Show in Contact...
more subtle propaganda still to come , stay tuned.
looks awesome - hope its a massive success.
May is a bit soon for me to sort my life out but I'd def be up for next one. Never been to Canada either so it would make it the perfect excuse
Spoiler alert.. if the first one in Toronto works out... then San Fran and Montreal are the next stops. South Western France between Lyon and Spain (small town) is a distinct possibility for 2019
We have sponsorship in place right now and we have made lots of pre sell on tickets but remember and this is important... Without an Audience there is no show.. We think we are putting together a really jammed packed weekend of education for everyone with lots of wonderful events in the evenings, not to mention Contact Photo Festival is on at the same time so hundreds of gallerys with photo shows are up.
Each location will be different in how we approach the city, and some will be smaller and more focused than others.
Bob, best of luck with this. I hope it is a big success.
Thanks Michael we are in talks to come to Montreal this Fall as well.
Go West, young man!
(I know about your presence at Capture in Vancouver this year).
We are starting with San Fran, and yes as Carissa is in Vancouver for our three Capture shows at the Playground, we are trying to meet with people that can help us make this a reality.
Capture did not accept any of our shows as features which kind of pissed me off but maybe we did not try hard enough or know the right people .
Our presence in Vancouver this year will be a good start to actually meet people and see if we can make it happen... I am particularly fond of Vancouver Island and would imagine
a incredible Photrio Symposium could be worked out.
One thing we have learned is that we need really solid help on ground to make this happen, which includes all facets of the Photo Community. Here in Toronto (my home) we know a lot of good supporting people that want to make this first one (second actually 2006) a real success.
It is Canada, of course there will be beer.
Here is a prom video I hope all interested could share .. it talks about a photographers weekend this month and as well the Symposium
Great video Bob, your team are doing an amazing job!
