Nikonians nude shoot
The guys from Nikonians were having a booth in Hall 2, level 1. Above them, at level 2, big company names like Nikon and Olympus had their booth so there was a huge number of visitors in that area. Twice a day Nikonians kicked-of with a studio shoot-out and within minutes a lot of Nikonians or perhaps wannabe Nikonians gathered around the Nikonians booth. With the model photo shooting Pascal Baetens demonstrated how to direct the model and come to an end-result you had in your mind.
Nikonians - Photographer Pascal Baetens
According the Bo Stahlbrandt, co-founder of Nikonians; "The crowd went really crazy. Pascal Baetens got them right standing on their seats. It was amazing to see how people got caught by Pascal's actions. I love to see how many people actually love the game of photography. It is exciting to see the number of people who ware upgrading to digital SLR camera increase day by day. What this will mean for our Nikon community? Well… I can't give you a forecast, but all Nikon users are more than welcome to join Nikonians!"
