WPPI 2012 Speakers Announced
I can’t believe that we are almost in 2012! When I got the announcement the other day that registration was open for WPPI and the speakers announced I couldn’t believe it. I have made it to many of the WPPI shows in the past, I think last year was my 7th year (out of 12 years in the business). It’s always been a great source of photo inspiration and a great way to connect with so many of the awesome creative people in our industry. I really encourage anyone who is focusing on weddings and portraits to make it to WPPI. There are some great speakers and just amazing company. To be in an area with 15,000 other photographers who all have the same love and passion that you do for photography is amazing.
If you are going let me know in the comments below. As we get closer to the date i’ll try and set something up so we can all get together for coffee one day!

All WPPI 2012 classes, events and trade show will take place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, NV, from February 16-23, 2012.

Last year, more than 16,000 professional photographers gathered in Las Vegas, NV, to learn from the best and see the latest and greatest products from the hundreds of exhibitors that participate in the trade show.
“Our goal for WPPI has been and always will be to help educate photographers, both professional and those looking to enter the professional photography business,” said George Varanakis, Show Director of WPPI and Publisher of Rangefinder. “And with class topics covering wedding, portrait, boudoir, DSLR filmmaking, lighting and posing, Lightroom and Photoshop®, business and marketing and motivational, WPPI 2012 attendees will surely bring home with them a wealth of information to help them be the best photographers they can be.”
In addition to world-class educational offerings throughout nearly 160 classes (including 8 Spanish language classes), popular programs like WPPI U, WPPI Plus, Photographers Ignite! and the Awards Night extravaganza, as well as helpful features like Pre-Board, will make WPPI 2012 the most exciting ever.
