The photos featured in the banner on the front page of the website, as well as on the click through pages, were all taken by Forrest Milder, one of IPED’s frequent faculty members and a
tax partner in Nixon Peabody’s Syndication practice. All photos featured are of
people who have participated in IPED conferences over the past several years. Forrest, whose father was a professional photographer, has been taking photographs since his sister gave him a camera for his 13th birthday, and we at IPED are thrilled that he has given us access to his library of photos to showcase them on our website.
