2021 Travel and Adventure Series
Experiential Green Screen Photography

Travel and Adventure Series Core Client

After half of the 2020 Travel and Adventure Show series was cancelled due to COVID-19, plans are underway for 2021.  Those plans will include the infamous US Event Photos experiential green screen photo booth.  How the booth will operate will depending on how things progress with the pandemic in the coming months.  We will follow local and CDC guidelines to make sure the 2021 season is great.  More on our COVID-19 green screen photo booths can be found HERE.

We started our huge Experiential Photo Marketing Green Screen Photo Booth six years ago, with the Travel Channel.  Travel Channel hired us to integrate a 10′ x 10′ photo experience into their 20′ x 20′ overall booth, using green screen photography to showcase travel destinations — and Travel Channel programming — world wide.  The next year, Travel Channel decided to eliminate their booth, and we thought the travel destinations green screen photo experience would fade away.  We were wrong.  The Travel and Adventure Series show management, who were impressed by our approach with participants, decided to hire us directly and we took over the entire 20′ x 20′ footprint.  Now the green screen photo booth is sponsored by various world wide tourism destinations, and features a different world wide experience every week.  In 2021, the show travels to Boston, Chicago, Washington, DC, Dallas, Bay Area (San Francisco), Los Angeles, San Diego, Tampa, Denver and Atlanta.  Instead of all the Travel Shows falling in the first quarter of the year, the 2021 proposed schedule will scatter the events throughout the year.  Once a schedule is finalized, you can find it here.

Yamaha
Bassmasters 2021 Scheduled

2020 will forever be known as the Year of the Pandemic.  After Bassmasters, 2020, all of our in-person, live events were cancelled.  In 2020, we saw months where staying six feet apart was the new staying together.  Face masks became the go-to fashion accessory.  Everyone caught up on their favorite television shows, binge watching endless hours.  There were no in-person live events.  Virtual photo booths replaced our traditional green screen photo experiences.   Mike started a new, local podcast.

It was March, 2020 when photographer and US Event Owner Mike Gatty returned from  the Bassmaster Classic.  He’d just completed his assignment for Yamaha, an experiential photo marketing booth at the world’s largest bass fishing contest in Birmingham.  It was the fifth time Mike had provided the green screen photo booth for Yamaha.  Complete with a 12′ dock and two replicas of the world record largemouth bass, the photo set lets Mike reproduce the cover of Bassmaster Magazine. Participants, with a little Yamaha branding, are featured front and center with their “record catch”.  When Mike’s flight landed, as he was collecting the luggage from the belt, he glanced up at the news.  The world was shutting down.  It would remain shut.

Now it’s 2021, and the Bassmaster Classic is scheduled for Fort Worth, TX this June.   The world is reopening.  Once again, Yamaha asked Mike to return to provide the experiential photo booth.  This year, it will be one of the first live events on his schedule, and will mark the completion of The Year of the Pandemic.

Carpet One In-Person Convention Scheduled for 2021

National Event Photography

For more than 7 years, US Event Photos has been the convention photographers for Carpet One.  When the Covid-19 Pandemic hit in Spring of 2020, their Summer Convention was postponed, and postponed again.  Carpet One hosts two conventions a year: Winter and Summer, in different cities nationwide.  When the in-person convention still couldn’t happen last fall, it was cancelled.  Then the Winter, 2021 convention was cancelled.  It seemed we’d never return to normal.

But normalcy is around the corner.  And through all the postponements and cancellations, we worked with Carpet One to be ready for their convention photography needs when they were able to safely return to in-person events.  Now that vaccinations are happening nationwide, in-person corporate events are beginning to be scheduled.

We will resume our convention photography schedule with Carpet One this July.  But they are not the first convention on our schedule.  In the beginning of June, the Phacilitate Conference will occur in Miami.  Advanced Therapy Week was one of the last conventions we photographed in 2021.  With any luck, by June conventions will safely return.
