“Vincent, Moose, and Rick are three of the most prolific and talented digital photographers in the world, and we are proud that they rely on Lexar Professional memory cards to accomplish their work,” said Jeff Cable, director of marketing, Lexar. “The images themselves are only part of the story; most often, the explanations of how the shots were taken is just as important and interesting as the end result. We’re extremely pleased to have these professionals in our booth at PhotoPlus Expo to showcase their work and share their stories.”

Photographers of all skill levels and disciplines require speed, capacity, and reliability to continuously and confidently capture images. Lexar Professional Secure Digital High Capacity (SDHC) and UDMA-enabled CompactFlash® (CF) memory cards allow professionals to shoot faster and longer without needing to change cards and, as a result, potentially miss a shot. Additionally, Lexar Platinum II CF and SDHC memory cards provide an excellent combination of speed and capacity for value-conscious video and photo enthusiasts.

Renowned nature photographer Moose Peterson relies on his gear to be as fast as his eye when photographing elusive wildlife in his native Canada. Travel photographer Rick Sammon shoots in exotic locales around the world, confident his cameras and accessories can withstand any shooting conditions. New York-based commercial and editorial photographer Vincent Laforet trusts his equipment, whether flying through the air taking his signature aerial shots, or on the ground capturing images for some of the world’s best-known publications.

These Lexar Elite Photographers will share their digital imaging lessons and tips with visitors to the Lexar booth between 12:00 pm and 4:00 pm each day at PhotoPlus Expo. The full schedule of in-booth presentations are as follows:

  • Vincent Laforet - Thursday, October 23 at 3:00 pm
