Our state wide PPM organization held its annual convention right here in Ypsilanti this week and we enjoyed the programs, speakers, trade show, banquet etc etc - all this had to offer at the beautiful eclectic ultra modern Marriott. As president of the Detroit Professional Photographers Association, I was also representing our local DPPA. There are 4 statewide local affiliate groups under Michigan, but Detroit is the largest one. Michigan is then an affiliate of PPA _ which is Professional Photographers of America - which I also belong to. We loved the modern lobby area and even took some time to take some images of each other with our friends. We had a lot of fun!
