From trusted voices like Yervant, Tony Corbell, and Ann Monteith, to newer faces like Jose Villa, Scott and Adina Hayne, and Alycia Alvarez...these photographers will share their experiences, helping you gather ideas and innovations to try back home. And that's really the key. Take what these photographers share and tweak it to make it work for you.

If you've been to Imaging USA, you know that the fun and education (yes, those two words do go together) extend from the classrooms to the Imaging EXPO floor. If you've never been...well, come and see for yourself!

Imaging EXPO goes beyond what you might expect. It's not just great deals and amazing new products (in 196 product categories) that you can see and touch--it also includes live, in-booth demos by experts. In fact, GraphiStudio Theater dedicates an entire theater-style space to their demonstrations!

# 6 - Parties + Special Events = More Time for Networking, Inspiration, & Free Food

Photographers find inspiration everywhere. It only makes sense that the educational conference and expo created for you allows you to do the same!

You see, Imaging USA goes beyond the regular type of photographic education and inspiration. In between classes, browse the 2,300 award-winning images hanging in the International Print Exhibit. You can even get more in-depth, one-on-one imagery help, thanks to the free PPA Print Competition Mentor Program (sign up fast before these ever-popular appointments are taken)!

    Enjoy  silent & live auctions, the Operation Smile presentation, dancing to a DJ, and a fun-filled event called "The Ronald" (think Celebrity Apprentice).
  • Rockin' Nashville Party on Sunday, sponsored by Canon
    Rock the night away and catch up with your fellow photographers after this first full day of Imaging USA.
  • Imaging...Ole! on Tuesday, sponsored by Kodak 
    Unwind and relax your brain as you party Southwestern style...and be sure to take photos to post on Imaging USA's Facebook fan page.

It's a good thing that all the Imaging USA happenings are centrally located in 2010 because there's so much going on--not including the 60+ classes. Check out the Event Highlights page of for all the latest!
