PHOTO & FILM EXPO

THE PHOTO & FILM EXPO is the largest PHOTOGRAPHIC EXPO on the continent. Nowhere in Africa can you see all your favourite photographic brands under one roof... last years' fifth annual event was the largest ever and feedback from visitors and exhibitors has been exceptional. Having thrived in 2013 despite a general industry slump the event is set to soar in 2014 - the event is booked from the 30th October till the 2nd November 2014 at the Coca-Cola Dome in Johannesburg.

The PHOTO & FILM EXPO is extremely focused and serves a platform where photographers can NETWORK and LEARN. With well over a 100 WORKSHOPS running during the 4 day event the PHOTO & FILM EXPO is time well invested. read more....
