Kodak, Nikon and Canon Host Party for Photographers
With athletes representing 200 countries at the Olympics, the Main Press Center is a melting pot for top photographers from around the world. Three of the biggest names in cameras united to host a party for accredited photographers at the MPC tonight, bringing the world’s top sports shooters together to enjoy some popular Chinese finger foods. With less than 48 hours to go before Opening Ceremony, photographers trickled in throughout the evening, already scrambling to scout venues, prepare equipment, and get some rest before 14 days of back-to-back assignments. Old friends took some time to catch up, and first-time Olympics shooters shook hands and swapped cards with the best in the business. I’m starting to realize that I’m here -- at the Olympics -- it doesn’t get much bigger than this.
