Imaging USA 2018 will be here before you know it...three-to-six days of everything photography, including learning, networking, shopping, and partying! It's all going down in the Music City, Nashville, TN, January 14-16, 2018 (Pre-Con classes January 11-13).

Imaging USA is known far-and-wide as THE place to see some of the best speakers in the photography industry, as they take you on deep-dives into every photographic and business topic you could want to learn more about. In order to get you even more excited (if that's possible!), PPA is going to spend the next several months highlighting our 2018 Imaging USA speakers.

Let's Meet...

Booray Perry had it figured out, or so he thought. After a 20-year career in radio, he retired from being a wacky morning man and moved to Florida to marry and start a family. He was a stay-at-home-Dad while his wife built a successful real estate business. When the economy downturned in 2007, his family found themselves starting over at which point Booray rediscovered his childhood passion, photography.  Today, he shoots approximately 100 weddings and events each year and teaches photography classes nationwide. Extremely involved within his industry, Booray serves on PPA’s Online Content Advisory Committee, as a PPA Councilor and as the host of IPC Live. In 2014, he was a Platform Speaker for Imaging USA, and then a pre-conference instructor for Imaging USA 2015. He sits on the Board of Directors for the Tampa Area PPA, and is active in both Florida and Southeastern Professional Photographers Associations. The combination of Booray’s ability to talk for hours, his humor, and experience make him a popular instructor and he’s always eager to help fellow photographers on their path to success.

What do you most value in your friends? Bail Money

If you could have dinner with any historical figure, who would you choose and why?  You know that guy that stood in front of the tanks in Tiananmen Square? I most identify with that guy’s friend, who said he would be there but instead stayed home to watch Archer on Netflix.

Which words or phrases do you most overuse? "What seems to be the problem, officer?" OR “It wasn't my fault, Your Honor."

If you could have a theme song, what would it be? "I'm the Map," from Dora the Explorer
