Professional Photographers to Benefit from HP Master Classes in Collaboration with Magnum
BOEBLINGEN, Germany, 18 November 2008 – HP today announced a series of complimentary seminars, in collaboration with Magnum Photos, the photographic co-operative dedicated to excellence, that brings together some of the most recognised and influential photographers in the world, with workshops on the new HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer.
The new photo printer enables photographers to print gallery-quality photographs in black and white or colour ink efficiency. The HP Quad-black inkset gives smooth transitions and true neutral greys to black and white images while the new chromatic red ink extends the colour gamut.
The HP Photography and Printing Master Class Road Show will visit seven cities from London to Dubai between now and February. While the agenda will vary at each location, each seminar will feature an inspirational presentation by a Magnum photographer followed by workshops focusing on the potential of the HP Designjet Z3200 Photo Printer with embedded spectrophotometer to develop the business of professional photographers. The programme will also include presentations of imaging software solutions including Adobe® Photoshop® CS4 and Adobe® Photoshop® Lightroom, the X-Rite APS, and Nik Software(1). There will as also be an opportunity for questions and answers and discussions.
“I see digital as a great improvement. The quality of the Z-series printers is really stunning, and I have a new adventure and a new income stream!” says Thomas Hoepker, Magnum photojournalist.
Participating Magnum photographers include Thomas Hoepker, Alessandra Sanguinetti, Donovan Wylie, Patrick Zachmann, Carl De Keyzer and Martin Parr.
“This road show is an important development in HP’s relationship with professional photographers,” said François Martin, marketing director, GSB, EMEA. “Bringing together top photographers and the latest printing and imaging technology not only provides a practical opportunity to learn about state-of-the-art techniques and equipment, but to renew one’s excitement for creating images.”
