Ever find it difficult to carve out time for yourself? To step back and look at your business in a new way? Finding that time is hard, but worth it. Without an influx of ideas, your creativity and drive can weaken. Why do you think companies give employees vacation? Taking a few days to recharge means a more productive, creative mind can return. And that's why PPA created Imaging USA.
Imaging USA is the largest annual convention and expo organized by pro photographers, for pro photographers. It's our way of combining everything you need for business and artistic growth with a vacation from the daily grind!
Can You Block Off 3 Days?
The January 20-22, 2013 event will be held at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta. That's just three days to block off your schedule for; three days to focus on your business and your creative needs as an artist. And in those three days, you might discover something new that changes the way you do business, thanks to the education, trade show, and networking.
"Nobody wants to become irrelevant. Attending conventions like Imaging USA gives us the resources and inspiration to keep on top of what's out there," add Dave and Quin Cheung, who will also be speaking at the 2013 show. "Whether it's a new perspective for craft or profit, an open mind can learn from everyone you meet at Imaging USA."
Longstanding PPA member Tim Babin, Cr.Photog., of Babin Photography agrees. "The education that you find at Imaging USA is astounding, but the people and friends I've met--people I trust to give me good information--are the best parts."
Sound like a good use of your time? As a PPA member, you can opt for a single full-convention registration pass (just $129), or add one or two guests to your registration. Non-PPA members can attend, and anyone who to joins PPA as a Professional Active member gets to go for free! (Of course, for an additional fee, you could always come early for some more in-depth, hands-on pre-convention classes.)
It's up to you how to spend the time you invest in yourself, but the first step is taking that time. So give yourself a vacation with real ROI for your business and art: Learn how at www.ImagingUSA.org.
