    Are you in the photography business? Then you’ll love Imaging USA, the conference where photographers from all around the world get to GROW, DREAM, and CONNECT with their photography peers. It’s like a family reunion for photographers only.

    This is why we honestly believe Imaging USA is the best photography conference in the world.

    Just look at our history.

    It's the longest-running photographic conference, trade show, and exhibit in the USA, drawing over 10,000 photographers each year, dating back to 1880. Imaging USA is always evolving to help photographers:

    • GROW with 80+ business & photography classes from big-name speakers
    • DREAM about the 50,000 sq. ft. photography expo and all the awesome gear
    • CONNECT via networking & parties with over 10,000 photographers

    This photographers' dream event also features 2 all-inclusive parties2 impactful keynote speakers, and several ceremonies and exhibits with some of the brightest stars in photography. And for those who want an extra dose of learning in a smaller group format, you'll have the option to add up to 3 days of pre-conference classes!

    Simply put: if you are a photographer, Imaging USA is the event you don't want to miss!

    Come spend and evening with Mr. Michael Collins Exploring some of the lesser known (How to use) tools in photoshop! We will be taking a look at some cool things you can do with Today's version of photoshop and look at the "Magic Settings" that many of the tools have. 

    I can not count the number of times I have worked with a tool and then somebody has told me that a tool "Can also do this!". Michael's vast photoshop knowledge and that question has led to this awesome evening exploring Photoshop!!

    We'll spend the day on three areas: lighting, workflow, and High-end sales. Starting with lighting systems for for perfectly nailing exposure and color balance - inside, on location, and with any brand of gear, making people look amazing without excuses.

    This means better images going into Photoshop then most people have coming out. And we'll take those images even further with a clean fast Adobe workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop. No Mater how fast you are. I'll make it faster.

    Then we'll cover how to sell these images for more money, how to best present them, and how to overcome common objections like price.

    He's back cause you LOVE THIS GUY!! George DeLoache, lets start the evening with a few great stories that will not only enlighten, but will lay the foundation for why great lighting is an ArtForm that we can all master!!
