Local Photographers Attends International Photographic Convention

New things are in store for clients of and after Lisa and Tom Cuchara 's attendance at Imaging USA.

Hamden CT — Lisa and Tom Cuchara of and in Hamden expanded their skills by attending Imaging USA, the premier professional photographic convention in the United States. They joined thousands of industry professionals attending this event January 10-12, 2016 in Atlanta, Georgia. Lisa states “I got to see live demonstrations of equipment, such as the Westcott eyelighter which I purchased in order to enhance the quality of lighting and catchlights for our headshots. I also learned a few tricks to help with portraits of both furry and non-furry subjects.”

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. “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.”

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. Highlights of this year’s event included the three-day Imaging Expo tradeshow, featuring more than 600 booths, giving photographers the opportunity to demo and purchase the latest products at deeply discounted and tradeshow-only prices. 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. The photography learning and networking extravaganza helps photographers like Lisa Cuchara become better photographers and businesspeople, allowing them to better serve their clients in the process.
