WPPI is an Educational Experience and a Community


Alison Carlino

Having been raised in the industry by WPPI for the last 17 years, I can truly say that the in person education, live print & album competition, friendships, networking, and trade show have shaped my business today. Making the commitment to invest in this immersive experience has positioned me to succeed no matter the status of the economy. I have a community of friends that would be there in a moment’s notice to support me. WPPI not only honors past giants of our industry but also seeks out trendsetters that will take us into the future.


Hiram Trillo

I have been attending and teaching at WPPI for over a decade.  I keep coming back because of the high level of learning I have experienced both as a speaker and attendee.  This community is one of the greatest in the industry!


Rhea Whitney

Attending WPPI over the years has completely changed how I see & do business! Not only is the education and expo a great learning experience, but I’ve been able to meet and grow lifelong friends in the industry, and that has been paramount to my businesses success as well! Every year, if time has it, I try to attend just to keep my tools sharpened and fill up my cup as a pro-photographer. 


Isaac Alvarez

The experience of seeing the connections that people have reminds me of a family connection. Everyone was so approachable and down-to-earth. I really can’t wait to see everyone again at our next gathering.


Andre Brown

WPPI has truly helped me grow as a photographer. The information and knowledge I’ve acquired from participating in the image competitions is invaluable.


Teshorn Jackson

Virtual learning has its place, but nothing beats hands on education where both educators and students can learn from each other in person.
