Many of you have heard me speak of The Professional Photographers of America organization.
It is the organization I most recommend for learning and a great place to kick start your photography career. Even if you are unsure of what level of photography you'd like to pursue, I still highly recommend joining in order to have access to the training and resources on their website.
You can join as a professional, or as an aspiring photographer, however, choosing the professional level grants you admission to your first Imaging USA convention absolutely FREE!
If you join as a professional here are some of the details:
Monthly Option: 12 payments of $27.92 - join now and go to Imaging in January absolutely FREE
or Full Pay Option $323 - for 1 year membership
Individual membership for the professional photographer includes access to all benefits, including online referral database listing. *Also includes eligibility to opt in for $15,000 of equipment insurance and much more - AND
one full registration to Imaging USA 2013 in Atlanta, GA.

and to join PPA
Imaging USA 2013 is being held in the heart of Atlanta, Georgia this year!
The Georgia World Congress Center and hotels are centrally located in downtown Atlanta and PPG has arranged for a block rate at one of the hotels, if you'd like to stay close to where our group will be staying and do not live close to the downtown area.
We also have a few people still looking for room mates, so if this is something you are interested in please leave a comment in the comments thread below the Meetup.

We have a block rate of $119/ night for PPG members at:
Holiday Inn Center City

If you have any other questions about PPA or the convention please feel free to ask and I hope to see you there!
We always have an amazingly fun time!
*No cameras or equipment is needed - although I'd recommend bringing them if you wish to join us in our PPG free shoot-out on Saturday the 18th before the convention starts.
