I recently had the opportunity to do a program for the Professional Photographers of California’s Pro Photo Expo, which is their state convention, on how I’m still using film in my day to day portrait work. Kodak Alaris was one of the sponsors of the convention and they were kind enough to send me 10 sheets of Tri-X 4×5 sheet film so that I could produce some portraits on the material for my presentation.
I just returned from a week long investment in photographic education in an effort to improve my craft and learn a new skill set that I plan to introduce to my clients later this year. Where did I learn all of this? At the Professional Photographers of California‘s West Coast School on the beautiful campus of the University of San Diego.
I had the good fortune to attend a landscape photography work shop with the Professional Photographers of California a few weeks ago in the majestic Yosemite National Park! It was three days of having my breath taken away in awe of this amazing place.
It’s been quite sometime since I’ve taken time to write on my blog and quite a lot has happened since last post in November 2015! First I hope this finds everyone well and that life is good for them. I know it’s pretty darn great for me.
I had the opportunity and pleasure of taking The Professional Photographers of California (PPC) Print Judging Academy yesterday in Roseville, Ca. I’m hoping to start my next journey in professional photography by learning the judging process and learning how to evaluate images that are being judged to be 12 elements of merit image standards that have been in place for decades.
