Scott Bourne On Stage For Olympus At PPE

Scott Bourne On Stage For Olympus At PPE

I am excited to announce that for the third year in a row, I will have the honor of speaking on behalf of Olympus on their main stage at the Photo Plus Expo in the heart of Manhattan, New York City.

(Stay tuned below to find out how to get a free Expo pass.)

The show is held at Javits Center, October 24-26. Olympus has a TON of stuff going on so you will want to be sure to come by and say hello.

There are free presentations on the Olympus main stage each of the three days of the show. I will be on stage and yes again, I’ll be photographing a bird INSIDE Javits Center on Thursday, October 24 at 3:15pm, and again on Friday, October 25 at 10:15am and at 4:15pm, and again on Saturday, October 26 at 10:15am and 3:15pm.

Not only will I be there, but Olympus will have Olympus Visionary Tracie Maglosky on stage. She is a spectacular wedding and portrait Photographer. Olympus Visionary Joe Edelman will also be there. He is a fantastic fashion photographer. Olympus’ newest Visionary, Ralph Lee Hopkins will be on stage. He is a world-class, wildlife and travel photographer.

Olympus will also have two of its new Explorers, Alexa Rakow and Chris Poplawski making presentations.

If that isn’t enough to entice you, then listen to this. All you have to do is come by the booth (#1053 – right behind the Canon booth and right next to the Fuji booth) and have your badge scanned. That will automatically enter you into a contest for a chance to win a free Olympus camera and lens.

Joe, Tracie and Alexa are also leading photo walks. You can find out more about those at the link below. Sign up for those right away because space is limited.

All of the top sales and technical reps from Olympus will be at the show and they will offer photographers a chance to test drive some of the latest Olympus gear. Again, opportunities are limited so get to the booth early to have the best chance of checking out some gear.

If you’re already an Olympus shooter, you can sign up for a free clean and check that includes an exterior cleaning, an image stabilizer check, upgrades of any firmware needed, a full function check, an autofocus accuracy check and a sensor/optical check. More info on signup below.

All of this is free and to keep the free going, you can use THIS PPE SIGNUP LINK to get an absolutely FREE Expo Pass!

All the other activities I described can be found listed here on the Olympus PPE page.

I have been attending or presenting at this show for decades. It’s the biggest photography show of its kind in North America. It’s always a great time to see new gear, meet new friends (have a meal with old friends) and to find out what’s happening in the industry. If you are in the vicinity, you owe it to yourself to stop by. See you there!
