Photo-Journalists, Aviation Photographers/Videographers- Join us at the Panasonic-Lumix Photo Pit

We are thrilled at the number of aviation photography and videography enthusiasts interested in participating at the Abbotsford Airshow, and have received many many applications for Press Credentials already.  Press/Media credentialling is intended specifically for News Outlets and Trade Publications. 

We have developed a new style of access over the last few years for those who join us as photographers, called the Photo Pit.  The Photo Pit is designed for photographers shooting for a personal website, online forum, hobby, unsold commercial imagery, or stock photography.  *New for 2016, Panasonic-Lumix will be hosting this venue and offering Photo Pit guests the opportunity to sample camera gear, talk with specialists and attend "mini-clinics" with photography/videography topics.

We invite all photographers to join us at the Panasonic-Lumix Photo Pit.  This venue offers Special Access to the Ramp during designated times (Friday Night Run-Up Shoot, Early morning before the public), as well as a comfortable tented venue which includes light lunch and non-alcoholic beverages for the day.  Single Day: $100  3-Day Pass: $225
