We have planned an awesome event at the end of September to finally meet you guys in person. So don't miss the opportunity to enjoy a great and unique evening with us! The space is initially limited to 30 people though - first come, first served!

Unfortunately this event was booked out pretty quickly, but we would love to meet anybody else at the Photokina. If you see the Locationscout-shirts definitely feel free to say hello!

It's this time of the year again when Photokina in Cologne takes place, which is the worlds biggest photography exhibition. If this alone isn't a good reason to come by, we organized a very special meetup at 28. September 2018 together with Skylum, the company behind such great softwares for photographers like Luminar or Aurora HDR and David Grigo, who is one of Cologne's best photographers and teachers for photography.

To do something very special with you guys, we booked the entire platform of the Triangle Tower in Cologne just for you, to offer you the best view over Cologne during sunset and blue hour. The space is limited to 30 participants, so if you know that you will be there or nearby at this specific Friday, you can book a spot to get up there with us by writing an email to contact@locationscout.net - first come, first served!

The event is free and the drinks are on us. We will meet around 6:30pm (18:30) in front of the entrance of the observation deck (exact geo position), which is reachable by foot from Photokina and get up there together at 7pm (19:00). You will have the chance to take some nice photos of the skyline, but also meet the team behind Locationscout and Skylum. We will probably also have a first version of the new Locationscout iOS and Android App with us, so you would be the first one to see it.
Besides that you will get the chance to talk to Dima Sytnik. He is the CTO of Skylum and such a nice guy, who is as crazy passionate about photography as we are. His engineering team will also be at the event and we are looking forward for some great talks about post-processing images.
Additionally we talked to our friends at Manfrotto and they are sending us the newest tripods right from their factory in Italy to try them at this evening. With this we also want to make sure that everybody is able to get a nice and un-shaky shot of the skyline if you don't want to carry your tripod with you while visiting the Photokina.

Hmm, when did you send the mail and did I answer you? I can't find it, but maybe that's my mistake. Just want to make sure that I didn't forget you if you signed up via mail already. ;-)

Thanks for sharing the news of this event Manuel! I'm with Skylum and one additional note: Our co-founder and CTO Dima Sytnik, plus other members of our engineering team, will be at this event. They are really looking forward to shooting with you and also getting your feedback on how you post-process your images. We are always interested in these opportunities to connect with photographers! See you soon, Kevin

The caption of the image in the mail for this meetup says "There will be some special light show again during Photokina in Cologne at the end of September." Can you provide some more information about that? I cannot find anything in the internet. Thanks.

Hey Jens, as far as I know they want to project something onto the Cologne Cathedral. But Cologne isn't the best in marketing, so the last light event around Gamescom a few weeks ago was also extremely hard to find. As soon as I know more I will try to inform you if it's worth it in my opinion. I was hoping for a similar light installation like in the teaser photo of the newsletter, which was during Gamescom 2016.

Thanks Manuel. I found some sparse information about that here: https://www.koelner-dom.de/spezials/illumination-zur-domwallfahrt/
Manuel Becker
Manuel Becker 03.09.2018
Thanks for the link. That fits into what I heard. Not sure if this is something that might be interesting for photography as well, but I guess it's definitely something that might illuminate the cathedral in a new and unique way.
