Photo North East Convention in 2011

The 2011 Professional Photographer’s Society of New York State (PPSNYS) Annual Convention and Trade Show (Photo North East) has been announced and registration is now open!

* New: Instead of Early Bird (7am) classes, there will be Pre-Conference classes….. Including GRPP’s own Patrick Luke and Heather McKay!!

* Dates: March 26-29, 2011

* Print Competition will now accept digital submissions and judging begins on Saturday

* There will be an Awards Reception instead of a dinner and it is ONLY $35!

* Convention is $125 for PPSNYS Members who register before Jan. 15, 2011.

* There will be a Certified Professional Photographer (CPP) class and written exam available

* GRPP will have a suite available and will ask everyone to chip in again this year.

* The Convention is only 5 hours away (near NYC) and I suggest we get someone with a mini-van and all car-pool!

* If you leave Saturday at 7 am, you could get there before the speakers and leave on Tuesday, then it would only be 3 nights of lodging…

I see at least one really scary face up there in the speaker’s section. I’m really looking forward to making this presentation and sharing my out-of-the-box thinking on lighting, showing some new methods I’ve come up, and sharing the latest MacGuyver lighting equipment and backgrounds. If nothing else, it’ll be entertaining.

Are you talking about MY scary face?? BOO!
This convention will be a blast and I am excited about all of the speakers this time around. It will be an honor for me to be on the other side of the table for the first time at this convention. My program will be all about selling and designing albums. Simplified. Hopefully people will walk away learning why holding onto the DNG is the right idea. For posterity and their wallet.
