Message from the President, Jackie Nelson

Hello everyone, Happy Holidays!

As I sit and reflect on this past year I say wow, so much has happened. Since March your team of board members has worked very hard planning our educational seminars, and our Annual Convention in March. We have changed our social media pages, added some, extended and built others. We have essentially rebuilt our website with current up to date material. We have discussed new ways to grow our membership base, and how to appeal to a new audience of photographers.

I value each of you as members, we value you as associates, we value your presents and consider each of you a part of our photographic family. I want to take this opportunity to thank each of you for valuing our association and for being with us. We are currently still working on the details Convention 2019, and our monthly educational programs for 2019.  If you have something in particular you would like us to try to bring to the association for a monthly program speak to one of the board members, we are happy to hear your feedback. Keep a close eye on your email, and our social media pages where you can always find what’s coming up next!

We are working to breathe some new life into convention this year. The changes are ongoing and we will announce more detail in the new year. I hope you all plan to enter some images into our annual image competition.

Please be sure to SAVE THE DATES for our Annual Convention.

March 1, 2, & 3 2019 Our 66th

As we wrap up this year lets reflect on what we did well this year, and grab the reins for what we would like to see change for next year. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays & a blessed and prosperous New Year!

Jackie

Message from the President, Jackie Nelson

Dear Members,

Happy Fall to you all! I haven’t been able to fully commit to not running the air conditioner, I don’t know about you guys but 79-80 degrees and sticky means my AC is ON! Lately I’ve been photographing weddings, sports leagues, some high school seniors, and underclassmen. Coming up in a few weeks I have a military ball, and a Christmas photo-shoot and some smaller jobs.

I recently brought one of my cameras to Midstate Camera Repair to have it looked at. The camera would occasionally give me an error, and then when I attempted to play the image back, it was not there. It got shipped to cannon and was analyzed. The diagnoses…shutter and battery compartment failure. The technicians that looked over the camera body said that the shutter had well over 200,000 exposures. I got a quote and decided to go ahead with the repair seeing as the camera would essentially be totally refurbished.

200,000 exposures, and that is one of three camera bodies I own. I got to thinking of all the great memories that particular camera had captured. It is a true workhorse of a camera. I’m very thankful I continue to get many happy clients who refer me, and many repeat families I have photographed for years. PPARI has many end of the year programs I hope to see you at. Invite a friend to join us! See you soon!

Jackie
