Photo Pro Expo 2015!!

 The Photo Pro Expo was last week and if you missed it I feel sorry for ya...
 Held at the center of the universe in Covington KY's convention center...
  There was plenty of seating for the huge crowds like above for Lindsey Adler.
 Also it was a great time for the industry leaders to get together and talk shop... or whatever.
The learning and fum was in abundance! Jim Schmelzer was amazing with lighting and posing!
#1 selling author, Roberto Valenzuela captivate the room with his wit
and insight!

Here's the lucky group from Crayons to Computers with the new cameras afforded by the Photo Pro Network! This year the total donation was $10,000! 
Portrait artist and Olympic sailor Peter Hurley was there! BAM!
 Jim Schmelzer once again...
 And the Photo Pro Expo! The best place in the world to try out enormous glass!
 Celebrity photographer Michael Grecco wow'd em with keen insight and inspiration!
And what expo awards night could go by without a mention about super team Higdon? I started a petition that next year we just mail them the awards and we can all save a hotel room expense...
And did I mention it was a beach theme?
Paul Goodman figured it out.
 Saturday into the morning hours we held the first ever Midnight at the Oasis shoot! More on that later. Above is pictured the amazing Phillips Mitchell.
And this man, Frank Wilson was my partner in crime for most of the weekend. Whether it was teaching the kids from Crayons to Computers to the Celebrity Guest Photographer booth for Westcott, Frank was there! THANKS FRANK! YOU ROCK!

 And you know I had a good time.
 Even my cousin Holly was there!
 And you know the attendees had a good time!

 I also need to send a shout out to these beautiful ladies, Natalie and Amanda! They were loads of fun! An of course, the one who chooses not to be photographed, Tiffany! Thank you ladies!
One of the best parts of the convention weekends are the expo shootouts! 

I'm somebody!
 This one is Roberto Valenzuela and I have a post next week about my shootout Sunday morning!
And last but certainly not least a HUGE thank you to Mr. David Ziser (who was only 18 days out from open heart surgery and still kicked butts all weekend long!!!!) the beautiful Mrs. LaDawn Ziser, and Mr. Randy Fraley!

Of course this post can't possibly sum up all 1400 images from the weekend! SO for a full list of speakers and itinerary click here:
