I’m pleased to note that I was recently elected Vice President of the Oregon Professional Photographers Association for 2016.
I’ve been involved in the OPPA since its founding and am looking forward to providing leadership for the group. It’s an interesting time in the professional photography world, and true professionals are able to stand out among the many fly-by-night hobbyists. OPPA works to educate and represent pro photographers in all areas of the craft and business of photography through our various educational events, social programs, and structured photography competitions.
I’ll be heading to the Professional Photographers of America’s annual Affiliate Leadership meeting in January, and I hope to continue the work of past OPPA leadership that has positioned us as a one of the leading PPA affiliates in the country.
Thanks to the OPPA members for placing faith in me; I look forward to an exciting 2016 for photographers in the northwest!
