Toby Herlinger, Sales and Marketing Director for Fotospeed, said, ''The best thing about the photography community, to us, is the strong desire to help others learn and be inspired. With Foto Fest, we set out to give others the opportunity to be inspired by some of the world’s leading photographers, and for the last two years we’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the festival and the speakers. We’re ecstatic that we have been able to bring Foto Fest to more people with the creation of Foto Fest Central and hope that we can continue to bring such a high calibre of talks to photographers across the country.''
