Nestled in sunny southern California, in the heart of Hollywood, is the Los Angeles Center of Photography (LACP). We had the privilege of chatting with Brandon from the LACP.

LACP is a nonprofit 501c3 organization devoted to photographers and the photographic arts. The organization offers classes, workshops, exhibitions, portfolio reviews, and more, all to help photographers advance their skills and careers.

When asked about one of their memorable events, Brandon told us about their “Exposure Weekend.” Hosted in the third week of July, the multi-day event was described as a smashing success, and we knew we wanted to hear more.

This year the organization took the event to another level and held it at the Hotel MdR in Marina del Ray just minutes from the ocean. The annual event brought together over 100 photographers from many different backgrounds. This included photography professionals and enthusiasts from all over California and beyond.

During the weekend event, attendees had the opportunity to have their portfolio reviews, participate in workshops and seminars, and connect with other photography professionals and enthusiasts alike, at various networking events during the conference.

Lessons learned from The Los Angeles Center of Photography

One of the great things about a solution like Event Espresso is that it will grow with you as your organization grows and hosts more events. In our conversation with Brandon from the LACP, he shared candid feedback about one of our product extensions: the People Admin add-on.

This add-on for Event Espresso lets event organizers showcase information about staff and people who help make their events possible like instructors, teachers, volunteers, and speakers. You can even use it to feature sponsors for an event.

“One of the features we really enjoy with Event Espresso is the People Admin add-on, which gives us the ability to highlight our instructors. This feature is critical for our students as they try to discern the best instructor fit for their needs.” – Brandon, The Los Angeles Center of Photography

By using the People Admin add-on, students can find teachers who are a good fit for them by learning a bit about their backgrounds. We thank Brandon for sharing this experience with us.

Exposure Weekend was a smashing success!

What would it mean for you to have an easy to use events solution that worked for you around the clock?

Imagine if things were more straightforward for your charity and nonprofit events:

– No longer having to spend hours and hours dealing with paper registrations
– No more hounding people for paper checks
– No need to piece together a bunch of different products to handle your event registrations or ticket sales

Plus, you could happily say “no thanks” to giving away hundreds or even thousands in commission or ticketing fees with third-party event solutions.

Think about the time and money that you would save knowing that your event registrations were being taken care of right from your WordPress website.

What would you do with that found time?

Wouldn’t it feel great to know that with your next event, your website could collect attendee registrations and securely process credit card payments for you?

And before your upcoming event, you could create an attendee list in just a few clicks from your WordPress dashboard, so you are ready to go for your event.

Choose Event Espresso for your nonprofit event registrations or ticket sales so you can move forward with your events today.
