Last weekend I attended the Pro Photo Expo in Pasadena. It’s produced by Professional Photographers of California and is an annual event. This was my first time attending and I made a special effort this year as I wasn’t able to attend the national show in Tampa. I attended with two of my fellow members of the board from our local PPGBA (Professional Photographers of the Bay Area) group.
There were some great speakers and the tradeshow was great as well. I was happy to see that at least one company, Rice Studio Supply is increasing their offering of products made from recycled paper. I spoke with several other vendors to encourage them to offer recycled and tree-free alternatives but I didn’t find anyone else already making an offering. I was hoping to see Hahnemuhle’s new Bamboo based inkjet paper but they weren’t represented. I’ve read good reviews and will be ordering a batch to test soon myself.
I didn’t take my SLR with me on my trip so this is a photo of Rice’s booth from my little point and shoot. Many, but not all of the products are made from recycled paper.
