Great Opportunity!

Professional photographers in our area have a great opportunity to attend this weekends PPA of PA's seminars and trade show for free!

Here is what's going on:

Tim Priest is just back from speaking at Imaging USA in Nashville and is on the ticket at the Professional Photographers of Ohio Convention in March before traveling to photograph a wedding in Sydney Australia. His unique application of fashion for weddings and high school seniors will certainly set you apart from the competition and give you some great ideas to apply to your own business. Word on the street is that the ladies will really love this guy - whatever that means !

Jeff Gump takes sports photography to a level that most would not have thought possible. Most of us have photographed the occasional baseball or soccer teams but Jeff's system has revolutionized the concept into a very lucrative full time business. You will be amazed at the possibilities of his EXTREME sports photography.
