First-Time Presenters Bring Real-World Education from Around the Globe


Las Vegas, NV—The Wedding & Portrait Photographers International (WPPI 2017) Conference and Expo, to be held February 5–9, 2017, has augmented its photo education program.

The annual conference will be located for the first time at the Las Vegas Convention Center. It continues to provide new educational classes, programs and also seminars to help today’s wedding and portrait photographers succeed in an ever-changing business climate.

“The photography business is an ever-changing market. We work hard to bring photographers and educators who are at the forefront of our industry to share their knowledge and insight about our industry today,” explained Jason Groupp, WPPI director of Education and Membership.

“WPPI is a unique, ‘cyclical community’ where attendees who come to learn for the first time ultimately return each year to share their newfound knowledge with others. We are fortunate to have a community so dedicated to sharing and we are proud to foster these efforts through our educational programming.”
