Kubota Image Tools and Kevin Kubota Announce Upcoming Workshop to Capture the Castles of Italy

Bend, OR (PRWEB) July 10, 2012

Over the past several years, photo-industry icon, Kevin Kubota, has done seven workshops in Italy. This year it'll be program number eight, September 30 - Ocotber 6, 2012. What makes this program so unique is that it's only open to twelve attendees. Cost is $ 4875 per person and includes all transportation, accommodations, tours and most meals with wine. The workshop includes daily photo excursions and outstanding classroom time with instructional help with photo projects, workflow and image enhancement. The only requirement is a passion for photography and your gear - the Kubota team will help you with the rest!


Each day of the workshop will include trips to wonderful attractions such as castles in the region, production facilities for local cheese, oils, and balsamic, wineries, cooking classes, and more. The local guides will lead the group to some of the most picturesque locations of the famed region, and along the way Kubota will help each participant with different aspects of their photography, from capture to workflow techniques.

"The Secret Italy trip was fantastic!" said Shane Rodimel, a past Secret Italy attendee. "The convenience of having everything planned out for us from each stop along our way that offered incredible photo ops, all the way down to the wonderful Italian dinners we shared together. All we had to do was show up! My wife, who is not a photographer, had an awesome time as well. We made many friends and continue to stay in touch. A big thanks to Kevin, Clare, Max and Cristiana for their planning and hospitality. I would do it again in a heartbeat."

This year's workshop is limited to 6 couples or 12 participants, and includes all in-country transportation, accommodations, tours and the majority of the meals. The group will have most meals with wine together daily in order to enjoy each other's company as well as experience true local cuisine. All attendees are responsible for their own airfare to Italy.

Merger of Parvus Corporation (USA) and EuroTech SpA (Italy) Establishes a Global Leader in Embedded PC/104 Computer Products

Merger of Parvus Corporation (USA) and EuroTech SpA (Italy) Establishes a Global Leader in Embedded PC/104 Computer Products

Salt Lake City, Utah (PRWEB) August 23, 2003

Parvus(r) Corporation and EuroTech SpA today announced the successful completion of a cross-border merger between the two enterprises in a transaction designed to capture greater global market share for embedded computer products and systems integration services. The merger establishes a global leader in products for embedded PC/104 computers, which are increasingly used in aviation, industrial, medical, military, and transportation electronics equipment. No financial terms were disclosed.

The combined company will retain the "parvus" and "EuroTecH" brands in North America and Europe, respectively, and maintain offices in the United States, Italy, China, and Germany, as well as channel distribution offices throughout approximately 16 additional countries. The legacy Parvus team will be responsible for operations in North America, Australia and select English-speaking countries, while the EuroTech team will cover Europe and the Pacific Rim. Parvus moved its headquarters in April 2003 into a larger U.S. facility to accommodate the accelerated growth anticipated from this merger.

"EuroTech and Parvus have very complimentary product lines and relatively little overlap in the markets we serve, so the opportunities for synergies and efficiencies from the integration of the two companies are very significant," said Parvus President Tom Hogan.

"As a result of the merger, we become not only the largest PC/104-centric supplier, but we gain many additive product opportunities. Parvus can now leverage EuroTech's strong PC/104 and PC/104-Plus CPU offerings in its new systems integration projects and standalone off-the-shelf product sales. Similarly, EuroTech will now be able to leverage parvus' heritage of systems integration and breadth of PC/104 peripherals and rugged enclosures."


Formed in 1983, Parvus Corporation is a leading manufacturer and systems integrator of modular embedded computer boards, enclosures, displays and systems based on the PC/104 circuit board standard. Its rugged, embedded PC products offer commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) solutions ideal for avionics, military, medical, industrial, and transportation OEMs. For more information, visit or call 801.483.1533.


Formed in 1992, EuroTech SpA manufactures a complete range of embedded computer boards and integrated systems based on the PC/104, PC/104-Plus and CompactPCI standards. All EuroTech products are highly integrated and suitable for transportation, industrial and telecommunication applications. For more information, visit or call +39.0433.485411.
