Photoworld Asia is a yearly international gathering of photographers to press the flesh, to see what’s new, share expertise, and renew community spirit in the photography industry. The Federation of Philippine Photographers Foundation has been hosting the event continuously since 1987 and PWA 2016 will be the 30th edition.

Chairman for Photo World Asia 2016 is Bacolod City’s Mr. Billy Lopue of the Camera Club of Negros (CCN). As chairman, he is overseeing preparations and event activities assisted by camera clubs affiliated with the FPPF. “We are inviting photographers in the Philippines and nearby countries to attend this important occasion,” Lopue said.

There are two components of the event: the photography trade show at the Glorietta Ayala Malls will showcase the latest trends and products in the industry, with major camera manufacturers and suppliers attending, and the international photographers’ conference at the Asian Institute of Management (AIM) where photographers can learn from each other’s experiences to improve their craft.

Main speakers at the conference are the husband-and-wife team of Louise and Joseph Simone, noted Canadian photographers and masters in portraiture, back-to-back with another husband-and-wife team, Michael and Tina Timmons of the United States who will share their expertise on how to photograph, manipulate, market, and sell customizable images as Fine Art Interior Décor. All four internationally awarded photographers are certified masters by the Professional Photographers of America.

Also sharing their knowledge and insights are local photographers with stellar names in Philippine photography: Rommel Bundalian on Travel and Street Photography, Jay Jallorina on Digital Management, Leandre Guevara on Practical Photography in the Art of Lighting, Cebu-based American Jacob Maentz on The Visual Narrative, and fashion designer and photographer Don Cristobal on Creating Masterpieces.

Aside from the conference at the AIM, there will be a big fashion shoot on February 1 which could see the largest gathering of professional models in the FPPF featuring the fashion creations of Don Cristobal. The photo shoot will be at the picturesque garden settings of Balay Indang in Cavite.

Capping Photo World Asia 2016 is a Grand Raffle at 6:00 pm on Feb 2 at the Glorietta. People who bought cameras and accessories during the trade show will be eligible for the raffle draw which will give out big, big prizes courtesy of participating sponsors.
