DSI had a great looking booth at the New England Camera Club Council meeting and trade show this past weekend. This was the 64th annual conference and some of the attendees we spoke with have been coming there for the past 30 years in a row!. Kathy Skarvan of Ava Art was with me on Friday to discuss her customer framing. She saw some familiar faces from past shows we have done together.
We also had some of Ted Dillard’s books on display and sold copies of RAW Pipeline and his latest book, Smart Object Pipeline.
Eric took in a few orders for the new IR Conversion service we are offering through Precision Camera. Folks are excited to learn about a new option for their older cameras and that we can make true silver prints from their IR files.
There were many great workshops and photographers on hand to discuss their work, travel programs and various techniques. Ron Rosenstock had a great talk on both Friday and Saturday. People are excited to see his new work, Infrared, was printed at Digital Silver Imaging and that we have his images on display at our gallery. We had taken two of his images with us to the show.
The trade shows are most fun when we get to meet people and make new friends. Paul Friedman owns a great rental company called Lens Pro to Go in West Concord MA. He has been in business for over 3 years and has built up a solid reputation and provided outstanding service for photographers looking to rent all kinds of Canon and Nikon gear.
