I am the president of the Detroit Professional Photographers Association and March 11 we hosted Jerry Ghionis - a word renown wedding photographer and speaker - from Australia. We were fortunate to get him to stop here on the way from Australia to Las Vegas where he will be speaking at WPPI - the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International Convention. We filled the house with over 200 photographers - and we all marveled at his phenomenal photographic talent, his passionate and entertaining delivery and savy business and marketing advice. As the president, it was my priveledge to introduce him and run the program. He spoke all day and again in the evening for our regular meeting. Julie is also on the board and did a great job as our raffel girl - we had so many great gifts donated by our vendors that everyone wanted to buy them.
Times like this makes me really proud and enjoy my role as president of this great organization that does so much to keep photographers current on the latest advances and trends around the world.
