Seriously Fun Photography. That's what!

The Big Photo Show is a multi-sensory experience where photo enthusiasts, like you, can see, touch, and explore the latest products rather than simply reading about them. Everything is designed to deepen and enhance your relationship with the entire photography experience - from image capture to image output.

Here are just some of the event highlights from our inagural event! See you at The Big Photo Show LA 2014!

On-Site Program (updated)


Featuring fast-paced, information rich and fun-filled sessions the Education Theaters will inspire you to take more pictures, share more pictures and "do it better." You will leave prepared to explore the show floor and try your hand in the Photo Shooting Zone. Check here for more information on confirmed speakers, topics, and schedules.


The Photo Shooting Zone will provide ample opportunities for learning new photographic tips and tricks. With information shared by professional photographers, you'll walk away with added knowledge on lighting, posing, and numerous other facets of photography.


The Hands-On Zone will allow you to interact with Creative Photo Academy instructors and photograph the models/talent you just saw on-stage in the Photo Shooting Zone! Providing "guaranteed" quality photos, the Hands-On Zone will be a truly memorable experience.


So you have great photos – your own work or your kids’ professional school or sports photos, or precious family images handed down through generations. Now what? Don’t leave them languishing in the camera or a drawer … Take Them To The Wall! A professional picture framer will help you choose the perfect matting, moulding and other design ideas – such as a shadow box with memorabilia – a wonderful addition for your home or office, or a gift for family and friends!


The Creative Photo Products Zone will amaze you. Here, you will discover everything you never knew you could do with your pictures. Get your creative juices flowing! You will come home with the very latest, most innovative ideas to use your images to: decorate your home, or someone else’s; make unforgettable gifts; design one-of-a-kind works of art; and share the memories you cherish with family and friends – all in ways you’ve never before imagined.


The Blogger Zone is a place designed especially for bloggers and members of the press. It’s where you can take a break from the action, and write about everything that’s happening. Share the great ideas and products you discover, the tricks and tips you learn, the experts and other attendees you meet. In the Blogger Lounge, you can relax, write, interact with others in a comfortable area just for you.



Got a problem with your pictures? Something that just isn’t turning out quite right? If you’ve ever wondered why you’re not getting the results you want with your images, The Photo Doctor Zone is for you! Learn how to better take advantage of everything your camera can do, and make sure it’s functioning in top-notch order. Any other questions? Ask away – the doctor is in.

Portraits of Love, a project developed by the PhotoImaging Manufacturers and Distributors Association (PMDA), will have volunteer professional photographers on site at The Big Photo Show to take free portraits of the families and loved ones of U.S. military members. Working in cooperation with the USO and Shutterfly, the portraits will then be sent to deployed servicemen and women all over the world, and each family will receive a free portrait to keep for themselves.  Military families can sign up for their portrait session here.
