Like developing superpowers, developing a photograph always starts in a lab under the cover of darkness and ends with a transformative dip in a chemical bath. Discover your extraordinary photographic abilities with today's Groupon: for $30, you get an all-access pass to Snap! Orlando, a weekend-long photography event ($60 value). Snap! runs Thursday, May 5, through Sunday, May 8, at various downtown locations. This Groupon is valid for May 6th through the 8th.
Snap! creates a citywide stage for both international photography pros and local accomplished film jockeys. The event will showcase the works of more than 50 artists in a dozen downtown galleries, cafés, and exhibition spaces. An all-access pass grants access to all workshops and lectures for the entire weekend, so card carriers can hear speakers such as photo editor Rob Haggart or score tips for successfully casting out the ancient demons that cause most cases of red eye. The pass also gets you into the Friday-night opening reception, and the VIP after party at Kres, and a Saturday-night fashion event.
Snap! Orlando unravels a city-wide canvas for more than 50 renowned photographers and emerging local talents to showcase their shutterbug prowess. Stretched across a dozen different venues, including art galleries, cafés, and exhibition spaces, the multi-day celebration unites both photography novices and veteran collectors under the same creative banner. On Friday, an artist reception launches the festivities with live talks from featured visionaries, and on Saturday, a fashion show shifts the spotlight from portraits to patterns with bold new styles inspired by some of the event’s creative minds. Attendees can also drop in on a lineup of lectures, workshops, and guest speakers who will be on hand to discuss their areas of expertise or demonstrate their go-to dance moves for developing a Polaroid.
