Bogen Imaging is proud to announce a new education program entitled Bogen Café,
www.bogencafe.com. The Café is a workshop environment offered to college
students that explores imaging topics in actual situations that are rarely discovered
within the confines of a classroom.



To kick-off each workshop there will be an evening lecture that showcases the
work of Steven Katzman, a self-taught photographer, author, and professor of photography
at Ringling College of Art and Design (RCAD), Sarasota, FL, one of the top four-year
accredited art schools in the country. This highly motivational lecture will be
open to the entire student body and the local photographic community. The next
day will be comprised of two workshop courses that have been selected by the college
and is open only to the student body. The workshop will be followed up the next
day with a program at a participating photographic dealer.



The Bogen Café is a program that will highlight a special selection of
products from Bogen and the program's sponsors through a menu of scheduled
workshop presentations. The daylong workshops emphasize the importance of developing
alliances with companies that are defined by their products and customer relationships.
The co-sponsors include Hewlett-Packard Company, Hahnemuhle USA, Datacolor, Lensbabies,
Adobe, Wacom Technology, and Rangefinder.



Katzman is a living example that corporate sponsorships can enable someone to
remain at the forefront of digital technology. His workshops at RCAD have had
fruitful results for the faculty, students and the photo department's digital
imaging workflow. Katzman's first hand knowledge, expertise, and examples
are valuable assets for this new program. Never losing sight that the journey
is more important than the destination, Bogen Imaging and its co-sponsors are
there to provide the photographer with the tools that enable them to concentrate
on their creative vision, while Katzman provides first hand experience and examples
of his personal photographic journey.



Institutions and their students are at a point where they need to develop an alliance
with companies that are defined by their products and customer relationships.
Katzman believes that the relationship can continue to be developed, creating
new markets in the educational environments, perpetuated by associated resellers
and their customer base. With educational workshops at the site of the institutions/resellers,
such a relationship will be further strengthened and solidified, enabling students
to become users of the Café's sponsors' products throughout
their professional careers.



The Bogen Café intends to target 20 colleges and 20 dealerships per year
for the next four years, beginning August 2007. Anticipating a reach of hundreds
of photographers at each location, participating schools will be able to select
from the Bogen Imaging Workshop Café Course Menu, regarding which specific
programs they would like presented. Workshop topics include advanced lighting,
location lighting, fine art digital printing, large scale pigment printing, fine
printing, Adobe Lightroom, and more.



In recognition for achievement, each institution will select an individual scholarship
recipient. The scholarship recipient will have a selection of their work profiled
on the Café website, www.bogencafe.com. Each scholarship winner will also
receive a stable of equipment donated by the event sponsors, including a $1,000
Bogen Bux Gift Certificate good towards the purchase of Bogen Imaging distributed
products; a copy of Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop CS3; a Datacolor Spyder 2 Pro
colorimeter; sample packs of Hahnemuhle photo paper; a Lensbabies 3G selective
focus SLR lens; and a Wacom Intuos3 tablet (4X6).

BosStrap’s out-of-the-box engineering solved many of the inherent disadvantages of across-the-shoulder camera straps. Visually BosStrap stands out because it does not require a cumbersome and roaming shoulder pad for a gear laden photographer to have all-day comfort.

BosStrap’s unique approach relies on a 1-1/2” wide nylon belt to distribute the weight of the camera on your shoulder, and a BosTail that remains attached to the camera. A TriggerLoc on the BosStrap attaches to a metal ring on the BosTail. In use the camera slides smoothly up to your eye; at rest the camera sits at your hip. BosStraps use the left camera strap lug as an attachment point which is safer than attaching to the tripod socket. Since there is no screw to remove from the tripod socket, moving between hand-held shooting and a tripod is a breeze. Professional photographers, who tested the BosStrap system under studio and field conditions, give it exceptionally high reviews. BosStrap is entirely made with USA parts and labor. The BosStrap System includes the BosStrap and one BosTail for $39.95. For your backup cameras, a BosStrap Bundle includes one BosStrap and two BosTails for $45.90. BosTails are also available separately for $6.95 each.
