February’s Meeting – “Get a Grip on Lighting”

February’s meeting was action packed… Before the main event with Tim Toal ( www.tjtphoto.com ) and Patrick Luke (www.lukephotography.com), the evening started out with the swearing in of the new GRPP officers. PPSNYS President Craig Hutchings made the trip to officiate the proceedings ( Craig is the only one that knows the secret handshake, plus, he wanted to hang with some of the best photographers in Upstate New York ), the new GRPP officers for 2010 are… President, Heather McKay ( www.mckaysphotography.com ). Vice President/Programs, Sue Egan ( www.seganphoto.com ). Treasurer, Patrick Luke ( www.lukephotography.com ). Membership/Website, Scott Crist ( www.scottcrist.com ).

GRPP_Logo_Blue_lrHeather McKay unveiled the new GRPP logo that was created by Erin Perrotta ( www.erinperrotta.com ). Look for members with our new logo, it’s a graphical update that brings a modern and regional feel, representing today’s Greater Rochester Professional Photographer. If you are a current GRPP member and would like to add the new logo to your website, blog, or marketing collateral, please contact Scott Crist or Terri Parthum for the proper files.

Tim Toal and Patrick Luke gave a great seminar with “Get a Grip on Lighting”, covering everything from lighting techniques to the proper tools to get that award winning portrait that your clients demand from a professional photographer. Tim’s studio was packed with all the latest and greatest toys that puts a smile on the face of any studio photographer and Patrick brought his knowledge and expertise for the “improvised” tools that can be found in daily life. (we’re still not sure if Patrick’s wife knew he had their shower curtain)
