We’re gearing up for the second weekend of Photoville and couldn’t be more excited to wrap up one of our favorite photo events of the year. Produced by our friends at United Photo Industries, this free event in beautiful Brooklyn Bridge Park features a modular village made from repurposed shipping containers. It’s oozing with masterful photography, business tips, workshops and opportunities to meet the who’s who of the industry. It’s also in its eighth year, which inspired us to switch things up a bit for 2019. Instead of hosting our customary one-day educational panel discussions, we decided to fully dive in, exhibiting incredible PhotoShelter member imagery in a 40’ shipping container while also recording episodes of our podcast Vision Slightly Blurred nearby.
The response from the Photoville community has been amazing so far. So many attendees shared their thoughts and stories with us and talked to us about how the work we showcased resonated with them. Here, we’re sharing that work with a broader audience, so you can experience it too. Each PhotoShelter member we selected for the exhibit was also asked for their best motivational advice for emerging photographers (many of whom attend Photoville) and we’ve included their insights below along with their images.
