What’s Hot at ProFusion: Ed O’Neil

This item was filled under [ News, Seminars & Events ]


Ed O’Neil is a food photographer extraordinaire. And a purist at heart. Ed prefers to capture the image in-camera as opposed to spending time in post, or in Ed’s own words, “Fixing compositional elements in post is like ordering from the menu again after you’ve already eaten.”

Ed is fully aware of all the latest technology and what it can bring to a job. What differentiates Ed is that he applies that technology as a chef would a spice. A little here, a little there, until everything is just … right. Ed’s a character as well as a brilliant photographer, which is probably one of the reasons Canon has chosen him to be one of seven photographers to represent the company in their Northern Explorer of Light program.

Ed will be presenting a free seminar at the ProFusion Expo 2013 Demo Theatre

Phase One – and why it’s Douglas Sonders camera of choice.

This item was filled under [ News, Seminars & Events ]

Internationally acclaimed photographer and ProFusion seminar presenter, Douglas Sonders, shoots exclusively with one camera system. In his own words….

“It’s no secret to those that follow my work, I have aligned myself professionally with Phase One. No, they are not paying me to do so. They simply have one of the finest camera systems in the world, which I happily own and shoot with (my Phase One 645 DF+ with IQ140 back), and have developed one of the most advanced tethering and RAW processing software on the market.”

What’s better than checking out Douglas’ work online? You have several opportunities to catch Douglas at ProFusion. And they’re all free of charge.

So our question is, if you weren’t planning on going to ProFusion … why the heck not!!
