4 New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep by Attending Imaging USA - PPA Today

4 New Year's Resolutions You Can Keep by Attending Imaging USA


The holiday season is typically fun and relaxing, but also a time when you sit back, evaluate the past year and think of what you might want to do better the coming year. Well, we are now a few days into the New Year - a great time to start working on those New Year's Resolutions you made. So if one of your goals was to improve your photography business, you can start by attending Imaging USA January 14 - 16, in Nashville. Here are 4 resolutions photographers commonly make - and how attending Imaging USA can help you achieve these.


Sell More Products/Make More Money

One area many photographers struggle in is selling printed products to their clients. Selling these products can often greatly increase your business' profitability. The PRINT For Success Theater at Imaging USA provides the answers you need to start selling more printed products! At the PRINT For Success Theater, top photographers will share sales advice in nineteen 30-minute sessions over the course of three days, all happening during the trade show. The marketing tips provided in these sessions are sure to get your clients excited about the print movement, and buying printed products in no time. Come by and get the sales advice you've been looking for. It's open to all badged attendees - including Expo Only!


Learn a New Photography Skill

Adding a new specialty to your business is a great way to bring in new clients, and at Imaging USA we'll be hosting classes on one of the most popular new specialties - drone photography! Drones are one of the hottest new photography tools on the market, and it's important to learn how to use them and incorporate them safely, legally, and profitably into your photography business. The Drone Zone will feature daily sessions in the trade show to explore drone photography as a business element, a new photography skill, and FAA training and insurance options to keep you legal and protected!



Find a Mentor/Become a Mentor

It's easy for photographers to feel like they are all on their own when running a photography business. In reality, there's a vast network of professional photographers who are willing to share their knowledge with you and provide support when you need it! Imaging USA is a great opportunity to find a mentor, because you'll be mingling with 10,000 other professional photographers. You may just meet that person with the knowledge to jump start your business - or become someone's photography mentor and create a life-long friendship.



Enter a Photography Competition

Photographers who have participated in PPA's International Photographic Competition (IPC) commonly mention that the knowledge you gain by entering is one of the best ways to improve your images. At Imaging USA, you can browse the International Photographic Exhibit; it's the largest photographic display out there with over 3,300 photographs featuring the top images from 2017. Come take a look and be inspired to create your own images!

There's also the opportunity to speak with an IPC Mentor about your own images you're thinking about entering in competition and get their advice. Check it out and remove the fear that comes with entering your images in a competition!


Now that you've seen how Imaging USA can jump start your resolutions, go to and sign up today. Keep in mind that you can attend the Expo trade show, PRINT For Success Theater, Drone zone, Keynote speech by Ryan Estis, and International Photographic Exhibit with an Expo Only pass... which you can get for free at!
