Professional Photographers of America to Offer More Than One Hundred Classes on Super Monday
September 26, 2013
Studios Across the Country to Teach Classes to Fellow Photographers
ATLANTA, Ga. – It's Super Monday to the rescue for photographers looking for that extra education and professional development boost this fall.
Photographers from coast to coast will open their studio doors on and around October 14 to offer insights to their peers as part of Super Monday—another educational endeavor from Professional Photographers of America (PPA). These more than 100 classes across the nation will help members and non-members alike better their photography and business skills, raising the bar and thus improving the industry as a whole.
To make Super Monday happen, PPA calls upon its members to "pay it forward," so to speak, and share their strategies and techniques with fellow photographers. The result is a more skilled and cohesive photography industry.
But rather than bring everyone at a single location, Super Monday offers photographers the opportunity to learn from their peers at a nearby studio. This experience gives participants useful knowledge from someone right there in their local market and helps develop personal network systems that are vital for these small business owners.
Super Monday will span portrait and wedding photography, posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow, and sales and marketing strategies. Whatever it is a photographer might need help with, there's likely to be a class that can help.
As proof that the nationwide learning event serves to better the entire industry, PPA membership is not required to participate in Super Monday. All attendees will also receive a Bonus Pack, which includes exclusive discounts and offers from DriveSavers, Intuition Backgrounds, Neil Enterprises, Pounds Labs, Rice Studio Supplies, Richmond Professional Lab and Sticky Albums.
Members of PPA will earn one service merit for attending. These merits go toward earning PPA photography degrees, elite distinctions that only the most dedicated photographers possess.
Online registration for $99 goes until October 2. After October 2, registration must be done on-site (space permitting) for $120. Registration and class information can be found online at ppa.com/supermonday.
Professional Photographers of America (PPA) is the largest international non-profit association created by professional photographers, for professional photographers. Almost as long-lived as photography itself, PPA has roots back to 1869. It has never stopped growing and looking for new ways to assist its now 26,000 members through protection, education and resources for their continued success in the industry.
