Hundreds of delegates gathered to attend the series of seminars at the Asian Institute of Management. There was Paul Yan’s session on alternative visualization; Dr. Patrick Flores’ discussion on the role of photography in art; and Buddee Mendoza and Rommel Bundalian’s foray into digital art in photography.

The older form of photography was given emphasis in Allan Razo’s talk on large format cameras and platinum printing as well as in Julius Clar’s discourse on large format pinhole photography.

Among the major suppliers in attendance were Canon, Nikon, Olympus, HP Printing, Kodak, Fujifilm, Sony, Mitsubishi Digital and many others along with a few dozen local suppliers.

Of course, Epson was also there, smiling…
