This event officially launches the bidding on a limited edition of 20 PocketWizard Plus® III radio triggers in “Tutu Pink”, made specifically for the Carey Foundation. These are the same units Bob uses to trigger his cameras when photographing himself for The Tutu Project. Each unit is numbered and signed by Bob Carey. PocketWizard will also be announcing a limited edition G-Wiz bag in “Tutu Pink”.
In honor of the one year anniversary, Bob also plans to unveil a brand new Ballerina image set in New York City. Limited edition prints will also be sold at the event. All net proceeds of the auction to benefit the Carey Foundation. Follow us on Twitter for an opportunity to get invited to this event![hr top]
