Welcome to the Boulder Photo Festival! While the festival is new for Boulder, the Photo Festival is in its 5th year. The main festival will be held over Labor Day weekend September 2 through September 5. Workshops are held during the week from August 29 to September 2.
The festival is proud to announce our new partnership with local photographic retailer, Mike’s Camera. Many of you had been asking if Mike’s Camera was going to be a part of the festival, and now we can say they are. The camera retailer will be in the Trade Expo area selling product from the seminars, sponsors, and reps at the festival. Additionally, they will be providing a seminar speaker to talk about all the new gear technology as well as drones. We are glad that we could make this partnership happen, and continue it into the foreseeable future.
New this year to the Boulder Photo Festival is the Trade Expo. The festival has partnered with Mike’s Camera to provide onsite sales and support for some of your favorite camera brands. Mike’s will have products featured in the seminars as well as the industry representatives there at the show. There will be great deals on merchandise, services, lens loaner programs and camera sensor cleaning. The Trade Expo is OPEN TO THE PUBLIC for FREE every day of the festival.
