The photo and video event

Since 2007, the Salon de la Photo has established itself as a benchmark event in the French photography and video scene. Edition after edition, the event continues to grow and develop to meet visitors' expectations.

The show brings together the latest technological innovations, with booths hosted by the world's leading brands. Distributors and retailers present the latest shooting equipment, studio accessories, printing equipment and more. So many products to try out in a historic and cultural setting under the autumnal light.

It's also the world's largest ephemeral photo studio. The event focuses on sharing expertise through workshops, training courses and masterclasses. And it's this need for experimental shooting that has prompted the Salon de la Photo to relocate in 2022. It is now held in the Grande Halle de la Villette, offering greater freedom of expression for the organization of photo spots (macro, sport, studio, architecture, culinary...).

In addition to educational and technical content, Focus PRO offers advice to help you develop your professional photography business.

What's more, there's a whole cultural program surrounding this photographic event. The Salon de la Photo's Grand Exhibition, the Grandes Rencontres, workshops, the International Festival of Culinary Photography and conferences punctuate these 4 days of photo and video events.

This major event for photo enthusiasts, content creators and professional photographers takes place from Thursday, October 5 to Sunday, October 8, 2023, from 10 am to 7 pm. The Night of Photography is scheduled for Saturday, October 7, in an adjoining hall.

Each day is an opportunity to discover different themes for information, training or improvement.
