Wedding and Portrait Photographers International is the photography industry's destination for inspiration, knowledge, and networking. The annual convention is being held February 27 - March 6, 2014, and the trade show is March 3-5, 2014, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Kubota Image Tools will not have a booth at the show (we are working on our top-secret project...shh...), but be sure not to miss out on Kevin's classes, and stop by the AsukaBook booth to see the new products and say hello.
Four Reasons WPPI is the Place for YOU!
1. WPPI is host to a variety of classes for all genres of photography, including wedding, fine art, commercial, and advertising. It is attended by over 10,000 photographers from around the world, and boasts hundreds of expo booths.

PC02 – How 10 Photographers Changed Their World (and how you can too)

Kevin Kubota will share the stories of these 10 photographers, and the impact this experience had on their lives and the lives of the people they served.

TIPS:
If you want to have your voice by day three of the show, stay hydrated! To save money, bring your own water bottle so you can fill up at drinking fountains.
Bring comfortable shoes. We know you want to rock your most stylish duds in Vegas, but figure out how to make it work with some sneakers or flip flops.
Pack snacks in your suitcase. You don't want hunger pangs to cause you to run out of an awesome Master Class in search of a $5 apple.
Use the Las Vegas Monorail to explore the city and save on cab fare.
Go to all the events your feet will allow. Network, network, and don't forget to stock up on business cards.
