Event Details

PMDA’s Portraits of Love, in conjunction with the USO and Shutterfly, will provide free family portraits at The Big Photo Show in Los Angeles!

Portraits of Love is sponsored by Shutterfly, Canon, Digital Photo Academy, Fujifilm, Nikon, Olympus, Panasonic, Pentax/Ricoh Company, Samsung, Sigma, Sony, Tamron and The Tiffen Company.

Photography Equipment for the project at the show has been donated by Paul's Camera.

Volunteer professional photographers will be capturing free portraits of active duty members of the military and their families throughout The Big Photo Show.


The goal of the Project is to provide U.S. soldiers around the world with portraits of their families and loved ones, taken by the incredibly talented photographers within our industry. What better way to make our soldiers feel at home than by providing them with a beautifully photographed and printed portrait of the ones they love and miss the most?

The PMDA Portraits of Love Project will help soldiers create their own private world - one in which when they lay down at night, in the barracks, in the tents, or wherever they are, they can gaze upon their loved ones. At a PMDA Person of the Year dinner, Sergeant First Class Toby Nunn spoke about the incredible motivation a simple photograph can provide to a solider away from home. We are looking to use the strength and commitment of PMDA member companies to help support this Project and provide the men and women defending our country with a piece of home during these difficult times. 

The PMDA Portraits of Love Project is the imaging industry's way of giving back with gratitude to the men and women who defend our country each and every day. We wish to thank all of the participating photographers for their enthusiastic support of Portraits of Love.

Founded in 1939, PMDA has been contributing continuously to the progress and welfare of the photoimaging industry for 70 years with emphasis on the particular interests of photo imaging product manufacturers and distributors.

PMDA provides a forum throughout the business year for its membership to exchange ideas and learn of new technologies and business trends in addition to administering programs that promote photography to the general public.  Our monthly programs and symposiums feature leading photo and imaging product suppliers and retailers, as well as financial analysts and technical experts.

On the eve of the annual convention and trade show of PMA International, we hold an annual PMDA Awards Dinner honoring outstanding industry individuals and technical achievements.  From year to year we also schedule the PMDA Public Forum in New York City, where we are addressed by a headline personality from the communications, government or corporate business community on current topics.

For more than 12 years, PMDA has been promoting photography at leisure-time shows around the nation with our Photo Information Booth.  This traveling photo and photo/imaging product exhibit visits several outdoor sports and/or boating shows a year where visitors are known to link picture taking to their main hobby interests.

PMDA has also teamed up with PMA International to create the Photographic Information Council (PIC) to promote photography to the general public.  We have created a fantastic website (takegreatpictures.com), which has proven itself over and over again.  You can find great tips and techniques, celebrity photographers, contests, new product releases and projects galore – to name a few of the many features of the site.

The member companies of PMDA have a box seat on the changing product and business developments of our industry and an unequaled opportunity to network with other industry principals and managers in the hour-long receptions preceding each of our meetings and special events.

Prospective members are urged to contact the PMDA office for an application.
