Imaging USA - PPA's annual convention - 2013 in Atlanta, GA

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.

    Hi Lori, you said there is no equipment needed for Imaging USA 2013. Do you have any suggestions for other items to bring? Is the attire casual?

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
