We have been working hard to make sure that there is something for all photographers who will be attending the show, as well as new topics and innovation that exist inside the Creative Cloud Photography plan, that we feel is exciting and would like to share with you. This year we will have one large seminar room at the event with each talk lasting for about 40 minutes, the schedules for each day are laid out below. Below the schedules you will find a more detailed description of each talk so you are able to make sure it’s the right talk for you, and to give you an insight into what you can expect from the talk and what you will take away.
