The Biggest and Best Photo Convention In The Midwest! PhotoPro Expo 2015

Good Morning Everybody,

Things have been crazy as usual around the Ziser home front/studio after all of our travels this past fall.  I’m still wanting to update everyone with from our travels  but time sure seems to be in short supply. Sound familiar to anyone else? 

PhotoPro Expo 2015 Right Around The Corner

One of the reasons is the fact that PhotoPro Expo 2015 kicks off in just a few more weeks – January 22 – 26, 2015. And….

We’ve been hustling our “you know what's “ off for the last few months pulling together all the details to make this year’s show the best ever!  Check out the speaker grid below – it’s the “Who’s Who” of the top photographic talent and trainers in the world right now. 


They’re all going to be right here in the center of the USA – Cincinnati, OH/Covington, KY.  If you are within 400-500 miles away, you need to fly, drive, run to this year’s convention!  So far we have photographers from 22 states around the US attending.  And we even have an attendee coming all the way from INDIA to attend the show – so no excuse for you to miss the best photo convention in the Midwest!

Three Bonus Programs Offered This Year!

CanonBlockJust for registering for PhotoPro Expo 2015 you’ll receive complimentary registration to Canon’s very popular “Imaging Essentials” all day program on Thursday.  My good friends Jim Divitale and Jack Reznicki have presented this program throughout the US in 2014 and Canon has graciously offered to make it available to all PhotoPro Expo attendees.

HalfDay_LAdlerAdd to that the fact that we also have Lindsay Adler  presenting a fabulous1/2 day program on Thursday as well.  Her program will show exactly how she creates her outstanding fashion images.  This program also features a Photoshop segment which will show you how she finishes her images to make them some of the most exiting images you have ever seen! This is a not to missed program.

AllDay_RValenzuelaWait, there’s more – On Monday you will be treated to a full day program by the amazing photography of Roberto Valenzuela.  Roberto is an award winning photographer and popular author who works out of Beverly Hills.  He is also one of the only wedding photographers working with a medium format camera. This fact alone makes his beautifully exposed and composed images stunning, amazing and breath-taking.

But that is not Roberto’s only secret – Roberto has a knack of bring people together in the most natural posing you have ever seen.  He knows instinctively how to make the subjects before his camera lens look their best! His wonderfully inspiring photography and engaging personality make this a program that promises to enhance your own photographic success for 2015 – again, a not to missed program!

Don’t Miss The Best Photo Trade Show In The Midwest!

PPE14 Promo7Not only is the Expo trade show the biggest and best attended in this part of the USA, it is also a source for fantastic education.  Over the two day duration of the show you have 14 different programs in which you can watch and learn from the top photographers in the industry – for only the cost of a $10 Trade Show Pass, (FREE with registration).  Get yours right here [link]. 

Add to that - Westcott is once again setting up our “LIVE” Bikini Beach Shoot” with beautiful models, all their latest lighting gear, and instructional mini seminars from top guest photographers including Peter Hurley, Tamara Lackey, and Roberto Valenzuela just to name a few.

It’s Party Time x4!

SurfboardWait, there’s still more!  We have parties galore planned for the entire duration of this year’s event – and they are FREE to attend with your complete registration.  That alone adds tremendous value to the entire PhotoPro Expo experience.

Midnight At Oasis logo New for this year-  we are hosting our “Midnight At The Oasis” Lighting Clinic.  Thanks to the good folks at Sweetlight we will have three shooting bays set up with models and led by some of the top photographers in the area.  Their goal is to help you get your best shots and enhance your lighting and photography skills at the same time.  This year we are raising funds for our selected charity “Crayons2Computers” benefitting all under privileged school aged kids in the tri-state region.  A $20 contribution will get you in the door for all the fun.

And Don’t Forget About Our Image Competition  – You Can Be  A Winner Too!

Webcast PComp Square 2015 -Each year PhotoPro Expo hosts the PhotoPro Network Image Competition.  This is your chance to have your images reviewed and judged by a panel of select judges and experienced photographers. I have to tell you – there is no better way to improve your photography than by entering image competition.  I know – when I first entered years ago, it was the “kick in the butt” that I need to really take my photography to the next level.  Hey, I sure didn’t win any Blue Ribbons or trophies in those early days, but it sure pointed me down the right road for future success.

Even if you don’t enter, you can still tune in to our “LIVE” broadcast of the actually judging.  We have two sessions scheduled on Thursday January 22, 2015. Here are the links to register:

Beach Party3Session 1: Sign-up RIGHT HERE

Hey gang, I could go on and on about PhotoPro Expo 2015.  We’re heating things up with our Beach Theme this year. Heck, it’s cold outside so what better time to have a Beach Party and it’s all happening at this year’s PhotoPro Expo 2015.  I sure hope you will check out all the details right here and be part of the fun! Don’t miss it! Bring your friends, share a room – only $99 at the 4-Star Marriott Rivercenter and share in the opportunity to learn from the BEST, network with photographers from around the country, and have some fun while learning!
