Kansas City, Missouri - James Hale of James Hale Photography expanded his skills by attending Imaging USA, the premier professional photographic convention in the United States. He joined thousands of industry professionals attending this event January 10-12, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia.
"I was truly overwhelmed by the amount of information available at this year's convention. This was my first, and it definitely won't be my last. I attended some classes that will help me with everything from posing, to lighting to operating my business more efficently and I'm looking forward to learning more next year in San Antonio! I was also truly amazed that there were 21 different countries represented by photographers at this year's convention.", said James Hale.
“Over the years, we have attended many conventions, but the highlight of each year was and still is attending Imaging USA,” adds PPA President Michael Timmons, M.Photog.M.Artist.Cr., CPP, F-ASP. “The education everyone has access to here is nearly unlimited, from speaker after speaker presenting their messages, to when friends come together and share.”
Imaging USA is the longest-running international photographic convention, tradeshow and image exhibition in the world. The event dates back to 1869, when PPA began organizing its annual convention and tradeshow, ran by professional photographers for professional photographers.
More than 10,000 photography enthusiasts descended upon Atlanta for three days of photography education and inspiration as well as some exclusive photography-related shopping.

The event also hosted more than one hundred speeches, presentations and hands-on demonstrations by some of the most respected names in the industry. Photographers also found mentoring opportunities, portfolio reviews and 10,000+ photographers to network with and create career-spanning relationships—a real bonus for photographers, who typically work for themselves.
