Hasselblad has revealed its plans for this year's free shootLDN autumn imaging show. Originally established by Hasselblad USA in New York six years ago, the ‘Shoot’ event concept is an exciting, informative and inspiring event based on the premise of building a photographic community. The company's UK branch has now brought the ‘Shoot’ concept to London, labelled as ‘shootLDN’, following on from not only the original NYC events, but from other ‘Shoot’ events that have also previously been held in cities such as Los Angeles, Paris and Amsterdam. And for the first-time the interactive imaging forum (October 8/9) will be held in conjunction with The Association of Photographers who will use the shootLDN venue to host their annual awards exhibition and ceremony. Both shootLDN and the AOP Awards will still be regarded as separate events and maintain their own brand identities, but the two events have been arranged to coincide on the same dates at the same venue, Old Truman Brewery, 91 Brick Lane E1 6QL London, with adjoining rooms to join the events together. The Hasselblad seminar speaker list already includes Charlie Waite,, Tim Flach, Sean Conboy, David Stanbury, Nicola Selby and Karl Taylor. Event partners for the 2015 shootLDN show include: broncolor; Epson; AOP; EIZO; G-Technology; Metro Imaging; HardSoft Computers; Pro Centre; Lux-S; Linhof Studio; BeExposed; Datacolor; Professional Photo Magazine and Old Truman Brewery.
