Imaging USA Speaker Spotlight On...Jetawn Spivey

By Chris Homer

Imaging USA 2018 will be here before you know it...three-to-six days of the best in
 photography learning, networking and partying! It's all going down in the Music City, Nashville, TN, January 14-16, 2018 (Pre-Con classes January 11-13).

Imaging USA is known far-and-wide as THE place to see some of the best speakers in the photography industry, as they take you on deep-dives into every topic you could want to learn more about. In order to get you even more excited (if that's possible!), PPA is going to spend the next several months highlighting our 2018 Imaging USA speakers.

Let's Meet...Jetawn Spivey

Jetawn Spivey began his photography career in 1989 with Don Painter Photography, an independent school portrait company in Dallas, Texas. Over the next 25 years, he honed his career in volume photography, working in all aspects of the school portraiture market. In 2001, he ventured into the digital age, blending his experience in high volume photography with emerging digital technologies. In 2002, he developed a background replacement workflow, allowing for the management of over 380,000 images per year that elevated Don Painter Photography to the boutique school portrait company in the area. It's no wonder he was recruited by the Lifetouch team in 2014 where he currently serves as a photography manager and team member helping to improve the methods in which Lifetouch provides quality portraiture to its customers. Outside of the office and the studio Jetawn is involved in Texas PPA and is an impressive and influential teacher and speaker.

Jetawn Spivey's session at Imaging USA is on Monday, January 15, 8am - 9:30am: Let The Why Drive The How In Volume Portraiture

Q&A with Jetawn Spivey:

What was your first concert? Van Halen

Coke or Pepsi? Ice-cold Coke!

Why do you love photography? That requires a "Big" answer. To keep it short, it brings joy to my life; it conveys emotion of all the lens witnesses with an infinite array of perspectives all driven by the one holding the camera. Photography sways the world. It makes one stop and reflects or changes the perspective in which one views oneself or the world around them. It brings joy to my life!

Jetawn Spivey is just one of the many amazing photographers you'll get to meet, hear, and learn from at this upcoming Imaging USA! Registration is open online now so save some money and take advantage of the Early Bird discounts for your passes...and your hotel!
