Want to experience innovations in camera technology? Interested in winning prizes with your photographs? Want to be inspired to take better pictures? ACP, Showcase and Olympus have teamed up to bring you this great opportunity.
On Saturday October 2nd, see a presentation by famed Olympus Visionary and Magnum Photographer Eli Reed about his award winning work and the new Olympus E-PL1 and E-PL2 cameras. Then take a camera out on loan for a couple of days and have some fun! When you return the camera, bring us your best shot. Each photo will be entered into a contest. Olympus will judge the photos and the top three winners will receive a 16 x 20 gallery wrap print of their photo courtesy of Showcase, a certificate and some coveted ACP merchandise will be the icing on the cake.
About Eli Reed:
Olympus Visionary and Magnum photographer Eli Reed is capturing history-- and making it--with an Olympus camera in hand. An Olympus Visionary since 2003, Reed began his photojournalism career almost 40 years ago and became a Magnum photographer in 1988. Later that year, he photographed the effects of poverty on America's children for a film documentary called Poorest in the Land of Plenty, narrated by Maya Angelou. In the 1990s and 2000s, Reed took iconic photographs of celebrities including Russell Crowe, Ice Cube, Tupac Shakur, Tyra Banks and Eminem. He has penned notable books including Beirut: City of Regrets and Black in America.
About the camera:
The Olympus E-P1 marks an innovative new era in digital imaging. This camera has the photographic optics of an SLR and the size and simplicity of a point and shoot (12.3 megapixels). Combining the still image quality of a digital single lens reflex (DSLR) with the A/V quality of both a High Definition camcorder and high-end audio recorder, the E-P1 is a virtual full-service imaging studio in one ultra-portable and stylishly retro body.
