Here’s your chance to join me, my fellow Sony Artisans and members of the Alpha Imaging Collective on one-of-a-kind on photography event Kando Trip 2.0 from May 9-12, 2018 in Monterey, California!
Last year, Sony hosted more than 100 photographers, filmmakers, and creatives at an exclusive, one-of-a-kind photography event, Kando Trip 1.0. For three days, Sony Artisans Of Imagery and members of the Alpha Imaging Collective tuned out the world and immersed themselves in shooting, collaborating, learning, and having fun. The success of Kando Trip 1.0 has prompted Sony to open up attendance to the general public.
Kando is Sony’s core philosophy, which roughly translates into the power of emotional connection and serves as the foundation for Kando Trip, our unique experience for content creators. Set at Asilomar in Monterey, California, Kando Trip 2.0 experience will stretch your creative boundaries. Under the guidance of leading photographers, filmmakers, educators, and social experts, you’ll explore new ways to create, share, and build your brand. You’ll be in the company of like-minded creatives and leading representatives of one of the best brands in the world, with food, tech, and cheer galore.

It’s an event exclusively designed for our community – a chance to for us all to interact, learn and grow together, with ‘wow’ experiences waiting around every corner.”
The experience will feature a variety of classes led by many of Sony’s brand evangelists from the Artisans of Imagery and Alpha Imaging Collective programs, with a common goal of allowing attendees to develop both their photography and their careers.
