    Joining the the print set up crew is a great way to start off IUSA, you get to see all the prints before the general public and by the time you are done working you will have made a bunch of new friends.

    Are you on the crew as well? This is my first year so EVERYTHING is going to be a new experience, but I'm really excited about all of it!

    Yes, I am on the print crew again this year and look forward to working with my fellow Print crew engineers or PCEs.
    My current profile photo was taken while on print crew duty.

    I thought it must be--it's too bad there isn't some way to view the profile pics closer, but it looks like you're having a blast!

    Ed moved too fast - we were gonna shrink wrap him to the Walker Rod crates, but he moved too fast... maybe next time...

    OK - here's a closer look - I captured this image with my little Kodak PlaySport100 Point-and-Hope, so it's not all that great... Ed was on top of the crates of Walker Rods. He was holding the 6 crates together so we could wrap them up on the pallet for shipment back to PPA HQ. and yes, he WAS wearing a Kodachrome T-shirt. Either Dwight was too slow or Ed was just too fast - anyway... we'll try again this year !!!
    This is how we get the same volunteers for following years - we shrink wrap them to the equipment crates !

    The ninja on the right so adroitly wielding that roll of shrink wrap like a katana is Dwight Okumoto from Hawaii. Dwight is the Chairman of the Board of the Professional Photographers of Hawaii, he's a CPP, an API (Approved Photographic Instructor) a PPA International Juror, and has EVERY Degree that PPA offers - Master of Photography, Master Artist, Master of Electronic Imaging, Photographic Craftsman - plus the PPA Imaging Excellence Award and the Imaging Excellence Bar Award - the Imaging Excellence Award is given for 13 Loan Collection Images after the Masters Degree has been earned - the Imaging Excellence Bar is given for 25 Loan Images AFTER the 13 for the imaging Excellence Award - that's a total of 28 Loan Collection Prints, folks !!! Plus, he's just a really cool guy !!! He's probably lost count of how many of his images were "just a merit". This is just an example of the kind of EXTREME talent you get to hang out with when you're a PEC volunteer working the Print Crew at Imaging. Just imagine what you could learn by picking Dwight's brain for 6 hours while hanging the prints and "talking shop". So working at the convention for the PEC hanging the print exhibit becomes an incredible learning opportunity !!!

    And Ed - we WILL get you this year - beware of the "shrink wrap ninja", grasshopper !!!

    ... and yes, for those who are wondering about the ninja remarks, I was heavily into martial arts for about 20+ years - until my knees finally gave out - MA competition is in the past - now it's just for "fun" - like when somebody foolishly tries to rob me - ya ha - fun time !!!
