Winner! in Follow ILFORD to Win Giveaway | Alan Cring

ILFORD Photo Paper UserCongratulations to Alan Cring of Normal, Illinois who is the winner in the Follow ILFORD to Win! Giveaway that we ran during WPPI last month in Las Vegas. Alan is a user of ILFORD inkjet photo paper already and is very anxious to get started with testing other surfaces that he has not yet experienced. Alan Cring uses ILFORD GALERIE photo paper” I am a dedicated user of Ilford papers,” says Alan. “When I produce 17”x11” prints of my landscape photographs, either for my own gallery or for customers, I always use Ilford Galerie.” We caught up with Alan to chat about his photography and why he uses ILFORD GALERIE inkjet photo paper. We were speaking to him the day the storms were rolling through the midwest so you’ll hear a bit of wind noise in the background!

ILFORD Imaging Day 1 @ WPPI 2012 Las Vegas

We had a great first day at WPPI 2012 in Las Vegas!  Lots of folks stopped by to talk with us about ILFORD GALERIE inkjet papers. We handed out lots of sample packs of three of our most popular papers in the ILFORD GALERIE line, Gold Fibre Silk, Smooth Pearl, and Smooth Gloss.  We printed photographs on the Canon PIXMA PRO-1.  Those who stopped by enjoyed seeing the larger prints on various surfaces of paper.
