ProFusion show mixes stills and video

Toronto-based retailer Vistek says its ProFusion 2011 Expo & Tradeshow will be held June 17-18 at the Toronto Congress Centre. The event is aimed at serious hobbyists and professionals.

This year – its second – it expands to include pro photography.

ProFusion 2011, says the company, will showcase the state of the art in the world of photo and video in exhibits from the industry’s leading and most innovative manufacturers. As well as exhibits and displays, the show will also include seminars and lectures. It will be “hands on” in every respect, says Vistek.

A major attraction at last year’s show, and a component that sets ProFusion apart, says the retailer, is the list of advanced workshops and exclusive seminars featuring world-renowned image-makers. This year’s list includes keynote speaker Jay Maisel, legendary New York photographer; Vincent Laforet, Los Angeles/New York based Director & DOP; Philip Bloom, independent filmmaker, also a leading HDSLR innovator; Douglas Spotted Eagle, author and celebrated video pro involved in multiple Emmy-winning productions; Seth Resnick, one of the most influential photographers of the decade; George Willis CSC, SASC, highly acclaimed film director; and Gary Fong, successful wedding photographer and inventor of the Lightsphere light diffuser.
