Sandstone Attends International Photographic Convention

THOUSAND OAKS, CA Steven and Peggy Roosa, of Sandstone Photography in Thousand Oaks, recently attended Imaging USA, one of the largest conventions (and tradeshows) designed exclusively for photography and imaging professionals. Over 7,500 photographers and vendors attended this event January 11-13 in Phoenix, Ariz.

“In today’s aggressive business market, I feel that I need every advantage to keep my business as a leader in our market. The education and networking that occurs at Imaging USA has become my edge.” commented Dennis Craft, 2008-09 PPA President.

Increasing the breadth of knowledge available, Imaging USA co-located with the Sport and Event Photography Conference (SEPCON), the Commercial Photography Conference, and the Evidence Photographers International Council’s EPIC School. By combining the resources of these four events, organizers provided the industry’s most diverse forum for photographic education.

With over 90 combined programs designed to improve artistic and business success, Imaging USA and its co-located events helped attendees increase their knowledge and skills in all photography specialties. These programs focused on topics from photographic techniques to the latest advancements in digital imaging, along with critical business education. Imaging USA also featured the Imaging Expo, a tradeshow with over 600 booths, highlighting the latest in photographic equipment, supplies, and services from the industry’s top vendors. In addition, PPA’s International Print Exhibition displayed over 2,500 award-winning photographs.

Imaging USA has established itself as the first major photographic event of the year. It began in 1884 as the annual convention and tradeshow for Professional Photographers of America and is the longest running national photographic convention, expo and image exhibition in the United States. In 2006, Imaging USA welcomed Adobe as an official sponsor of the Adobe Photoshop and Lightroom for Photographers track, a sponsorship that continues today. In 2008, a new Business First educational track was added, sponsored by WHCC. For more information, visit www.imagingusa.org.
