Imaging USA 2016 was incredible! Imaging USA is the longest running national photographic convention, expo and image exhibition in the United States, drawing thousands of professionals from around the world. Dating back to 1880, when it began as the annual convention and trade show for Professional Photographers of America, the event is always growing and evolving. This year the show was held at the Georgia World Congress Center, January 10-12, 2016.

Major components of Imaging USA are the three-day Imaging EXPO trade show, several all-inclusive parties and presentations by some of the biggest names in the photographic industry. Imaging USA's renowned educational classes are geared to improve a photographer's business skills, photographic repertoire and use of technologies.

The expo show was so much fun! All the latest gear, software, print products and just about everything you can dream up was on display. Some of the greatest photographers in the world were teaching thousands of other talented photogs in this annual event. At Imaging USA you will always improve your skills and be inspired by the most amazing pictures you will ever see on display. 

On Monday while at the expo show I walked around and shot video of all the vendor booths and photographers in attendance. The video rig that I used created quite a stir. Everyone was asking, "what is your setup!". I used my Ipad Air 2 to record the video, mounted in a IOGRAPHER case, Rode VideoMic Go for audio and this amazing small light called the Lume Cube. I used IMovie video editing app that is standard on an Ipad to create the video. Here is the video enjoy...

I also got to meet international award winning photographer Sal Cincotta. He is one of the most influential photographers in the world. Great guy as well, always willing to be a help.

BROADCAST Pro Photo hikes up Bell Mountain! The North Georgia area only sees a handful of snows each winter. On Friday it snowed pretty good in Blue Ridge, so photographer Randy Gray took off to Hiawassee, Ga on Saturday morning. Bell Mountain in the snow got him very excited at what photographic scenes were just waiting to be captured. Only 4 wheel drive vehicles with mods can make it to the top of the mountain. Randy parked at the bottom of the last hill and hiked to the top. After a 45 mile drive on snowy roads and a 3/4 mile hike over rocks WOW what a view. One of Gods creations at its best. 20 degree weather and 50+ mph winds would not hinder this photographer. Tripod setup was blown over during the day, but thank God it hit on the lens hood and the Canon 6D was spared.

Also I group of Jeeps came up and added to the photography fun! It was an awesome day hope you enjoy the images and the video that was created.

BROADCAST Pro Photo visits Toccoa Falls! This beautiful place has been on photographer Randy Gray's bucket list for a while. It is located on the campus of Toccoa Falls College in Stephens County, Georgia. It is a 80 mile drive from Blue Ridge, Georgia and well worth it. Entrance to the waterfall is through the welcome center store. Admission is only $2.00 with a very short walk and prepare to stand in awe.

On this 30 degree winter weather day when BROADCAST Pro Photo visited, the place is still amazing. A trip in the spring and fall has already been planned! The Toccoa Falls has a vertical drop of 186 feet. That makes it 26 feet higher than Niagara Falls. A must visit place for your family!

"Need For Speed" movie scene being shot at the Swan Drive-in this June Big news for my hometown Blue Ridge, Georgia! A major motion picture will have one of the scenes shot at the Swan Drive-in. It is scheduled for June 19th and 20th. The Need for Speed movie will be released in 2014. 

Tammy Smith Casting was in town yesterday looking for cars and extras to be used in the movie. Hot rods from the 1950's to modern day muscle lined the streets of downtown. It was quite a sight to see! The Fannin County Relay for Life car show was held with the proceeds going to the American Cancer Society. 100's of people got in line to have their picture taken in hopes of being used as an extra in the movie. Car owners as well submitted their car for consideration to be used in the movie. I have always wanted to be an extra in a movie. So I had my picture made as well. Good luck to those who applied! This would be really cool to take part in this movie. Who would have ever thought my little hometown would ever be a part of a major motion picture! Cant wait to see the movie!
