Print Judging

 All Programs Were BIG Hits!

The most often heard comments from this year's PhotoProExpo was definitely the excellence of the presenters.  Everyone enjoyed the variety of topics which each speaker discussed and also the depth of knowledge they brought to their topics. When we asked the attendees what they thought of the speakers, each and every speakers’ evaluations were overwhelmingly “Excellent” .  It's pretty darn exciting to see that kind of response from nearly 100% of all those attending the convention!   It means we must be doing something right and it took the efforts of a lot of people to pull it off.  Wait till you see what’s planned for next year!

With the lineup we had this year, it was impossible to go wrong with any of the 10 programs you chose to attend. Blair Phillips kicked off on our first day Friday morning and literally hit it out of the park with his presentation.  Blair had folks taking notes at 1,000,000 miles a minute, hanging on his every word, enjoying his easy humor he brought to his presentation.  Here's just a short three minute presentation of what you missed.

PhotoProExpo 2011 - Blair Phillips Excerpt from PhotoProExpo on Vimeo.

Awards Celebration

Laura, Tim, and Bev The PhotoProExpo Awards Celebration is always the high point of the Convention.  This year's Award Ceremony was no exception.

What’s Happening For 2011 – Message From The President, David Ziser

250x250px - DAZ-LVr-LoResClose Hey everybody, I said it during the Awards Ceremony and all say it again now.  I want 2011 to be the most exciting year ever for the Kentucky Professional Photographers Association.  My top priorities are to bring you more great programs, several webinars this year, and over 50 hours of solid web training that you, our members, can enjoy as a benefit with your membership.  This is a year that you can't afford not to be a KPPA member.  Your membership in  KPPA  will be the best you'll find anywhere in the country, I promise.  We have several projects in the works already – I’ll keep you posted on their progress.

I've already contacted several speakers for next year. And when you hear the names you'll be amazed at what we've got in store for PhotoProExpo 2012. Plan to be part of the excitement!  Not only that, but we've got a lot of exciting new things planned for tradeshow as well. Next year we’re planning to include a print review area where you can bring your prints and have one of several qualified image experts review and critique those images for you.

The second they we’re planning, with the help of Westcott, is set up several shooting bays where you will actually get a chance to start your portfolio building – cool, don’t you think?  And finally, were arranging to have Lighting Clinics happening right on the tradeshow floor.  This will be your opportunity to get your hands on the gear, see how works, and maybe even pull off a great photograph or two.  Plus, we’re planning an even larger PhotoProExpo tradeshow – larger than ever before!  This is a weekend you won’t want to miss so mark your calendars. PhotoProExpo 2012 is scheduled for February 2-5, 2012.

Hey gang, let’s have a great year together!  But I can’t do it by myself. We need everyone, not only the photographers from Kentucky, but also the tri-state area including Ohio and Indiana to tell your friends and fellow photographers about the exciting happenings we have coming your way. I look forward to seeing you again with our first webcast in March – stay tuned.  Fasten your seat belts – we are ready for lift off!!!!

David Ziser, President KPPA
