A Year in Review: The Best of 2017

As 2017 comes to an end, we find ourselves reflecting on the many wonderful moments that have passed throughout the year in the Foto Care Community.  This has been one of our most exciting years; we have tons of new product releases, added new members to our staff, completed over 25 incredible events and collaborated on even more, and implemented changes to better suit the needs of our customers.  We’re proud of our accomplishments, and would love to share some of our top highlights with you.

Members of the Rentals Team at the Phase One Launch Party

We’ve had many fantastic events over the past year, but a few stand out as extraordinary.  We celebrated the launch of partnering with Phase One as a dealer with a rooftop party on a perfect May evening.  We also had pro fashion photographer and Canon Explorer of Light, Lindsay Adler, teach a lighting workshop on our rooftop with professional models, makeup artists, and stylists.

 We also partnered with our vendors for some amazing off site events.  We participated with Fujifilm in their First Annual Fujifilm Festival, an entire weekend of Fujifilm X-Photographer’s running workshops and classes.  Check out our video from the event here:

 We also visited Photoville in Brooklyn, and got to see so much amazing fine art and documentary photography.  We got to try out some Leica cameras and lenses, as well as participate in a long exposure night photography workshop with Leica.  Here’s a video from Photoville:

 Some game changers were announced in 2017 in the world of Photography, specifically in the world of medium format.  This includes the Fujifilm GFX 50s system: the first Mirrorless Medium Format System and the most affordable on the market.  Also announced was the Profoto A1, the world’s smallest studio light.
