Later this month, FUJIFILM’s X Series will dazzle visitors at Photokina 2018 in Cologne, Germany – and with it, leading X-Photographers including the USA’s own Ruddy Roye and Elia Locardi, will be talking about why they use the system.
Alongside X-Photographers from around the world, Ruddy Roye and Elia Locardi will be giving talks and live demos across Photokina’s four days on the main stage. Fujifilm will also be hosting an exciting series of events at its stand in Hall 4.2, so new and existing X Series and GFX users can get to grips with the gear they love.
Brooklyn’s Ruddy Roye specializes in photojournalism, editorial, and environmental portraits. Published in National Geographic, The New York Times, and Vogue to name but a few, and nominated as Time Magazine‘s Instagram photographer of the year, Ruddy has taken a photographic journey around the world, striving to bring communities’ voices to the mainstream. Ruddy will be talking about street portraiture.
Elia Locardi is an internationally acclaimed professional travel photographer and videographer. Perpetually journeying from country to country, Elia has visited more than 55 countries since 2009, collaborating with major companies, brands, NGOs, and tourism agencies on nearly every continent, as well as teaching photography, which has garnered him a social media following of nearly three million. Elia will be talking about travel photography, and also how to maximize the potential of FUJIFILM RAW files in post-processing.
At the FUJIFILM stands, visitors will find special Touch & Try areas with all the latest X Series and GFX system cameras and lenses, including the game-changing X-T3, as well as English-speaking staff to answer their questions. With suitable ID and a credit card, attendees will also be able to loan cameras and lenses for the day on which they’re attending the show, so they can test products at their leisure.
The FUJIFILM stand will also host a Quick Maintenance Service, where users can receive sensor cleaning, exterior cleaning, brief operation checks, and firmware updates for up to three products from the FUJIFILM X Series and GFX system lineups.
