When Kenna Klosterman from CreativeLive contacted us with an idea for a printing event at their studio down the street from us, we were all in. As Kenna put it, Glazer’s and CreativeLive share the same mission of education and community, so this partnership was a no brainer. The stars aligned even more when Rich Villa from Canon and Evan Parker from Moab were able to join us.
The concept was for a one night only “pop-up” photo exhibit and printing event. Bring an image on thumb drive, get it printed out on fine art Moab paper, hang the print for the evening and then take it home with you at the end of the night. Add to that some drinks from Proletariat Wine, snacks, music and the good company of your local photography community and you’ve got a great evening.
My station was at the small but mighty Canon Selphy printer. The printer becomes a wifi hotspot and you can print 4×6 photos directly from your phone. I probably printed out 75 prints for people that night!
It was nice to have a chance to hang out and chat with some of our regular customers, but I also met a lot of really great new people. There was so much enthusiasm and energy in the room that night. The sentiment I heard a lot was that everyone wanted to print more and this event got them motivated to finally do it.

Big thanks to CreativeLive, Canon and Moab for making this event possible and such a hit!
If you missed this event, but would like to learn more about printing, we will be offering free printing workshops at this year’s PhotoFest, June 10th-12th. Check our events page for updates.
