The Upppa Un-Convention-al (professional photography convention) September 6,7,8 2011 located at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago IL
A completely new kind of professional photography convention…
The unconventional convention aka Un-Convention-al. UPPPA United Professional Portrait Photographers Association is a unique professional organization that formed in 2010. UPPPA’s main focus is raising the bar in our industry through education, inspiration, and charity. We are putting together a very exciting week long photography convention. Some of our speakers are the best selling author David Avrin the “Visibility Coach”, author of “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who Knows You”, Chris Hayes – Advertising agency creative that services fortune 500 companies, and photographers/marketers, Scott Crosby, Rod Evans, Joy Vertz, Jeff & Michelle Richardson, Jennifer Nace & Angie Kalthoff, and more. We are adding two more really exciting speakers, that we are still negotiating with, one of them is one of the best fashion industry shooters. By adding awesome creative talent like this and including some from other similar industry’s we believe this will inspire and motivate our attendees. Some of our other out of the box ideas are some round table discussions on stage between the speakers from each day, and they will be taking questions for discussion from a live twitter feed on stage each night. We will also have live evening entertainment including a stand-up comic on Wednesday, and a rock band to “Rock the Event” on our closing night of our photography convention.
Hotel room blocks start at $159 per night at the Hard Rock Hotel. This photography convention is going to ROCK!
