As President Elect of the Detroit Professional Photographers Association, I work with the speakers that I lined up last year to make sure all goes well . Michael Redford, a very successful portrait photographer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania was our speaker August 15th. It was a great program, co-sponsored by PPM - The Professional Photographers of Michigan - as the second stop in their tour of visiting all the affiliates across the state. I was honored to introduce him, and present him with his PPA (Professional Photographers of America) Merit.. John Glass, our currect President, is also shown with us. We have a great line up coming up this year - check it out at www.dppa.net.
