Speaking Engagement

I was recently asked to speak at the Ark-la-tex professional photographers guild in Texarkana TX. On April 13th I will be presenting a program and judging their print competition. It is always an honor to be asked to speak to other photographers.
Several years ago I did quite a bit of speaking and earned my Craftsman degree from PPA. I have not pursued speaking in the last couple of years focusing more on opening a second studio and serving on the ArkansasPPA board. I would say in recent months as I look forward to the end of my term as APPA president I have been inspired to create a new series of programs and hit the road again. I will be speaking at the Oklahoma state convention in August. The theme of the new programs is still developing but it will involve the idea of finding your own style and being true to yourself as an artist. There is a temptation today for photographers to imitate the latest trends, but not really find a style that is true to them or their community. I hope these programs will inspire photographers to create but not imitate. Finding your niche as a photographer is one of the most important things you can do in creating a successful business. Full Color our lab in Dallas and Burns picture frames are sponsoring our program so many of our engagements will be covered by our sponsorship if you would like more info have having me speak at you photography group let me know.

Ward Mansion

We recently did a few photos of the Ward Mansion Bed & Breakfast. Joann Stevens has done an incredible job of remodeling this historic house. Check out her website and consider staying there if you will be staying in Conway soon.
