PPA - Imaging USA Photo Conference

Just got back into Louisville from the PPA - Imaging USA Photo Conference in Nashville.

Imaging USA’s mission is to be the first major photographic event of the year that brings together the forward-thinking photographers and business leaders whose ideas spark innovation and change in the industry.

It is the longest running national photographic convention, expo, and image exhibition in the United States, drawing thousands of professionals from around the world. Dating back to 1880, when it began as the annual convention and tradeshow for Professional Photographers of America, the event is always growing and evolving.

Went to quite a few training classes, met lots of other photographers. The Boudoir Divas from San Diego spoke, had to go see them. They run a high end Boudoir business, average shoot price is $2000! Also went to a great lighting seminar taught by Tony Corbell and lots of marketing workshops. The marketing stuff put me to sleep, I'm pretty sure I could have taught THOSE classes!
There was also a huge trade show. Pretty much all the heavy hitters were in attendance. It was hard keeping my wallet in my jeans! I did beat a few vendors up on pricing and made a few purchases though.
