Join Tony L. Corbell, Cr.Photog., API as he discusses how you can best use photographic lighting to truly bring out the optimum quality in a portrait session. Light-shaping tools will be discussed as a major contributor to the creative process. With the use of numerous examples and diagrams, Tony will help attendees understand the importance of truly knowing our equipment. Softboxes, beauty dishes, umbrellas are all terms we have become familiar with; what we need to know is WHEN to use each of these tools and, perhaps as important, their exact placement.

Have you already signed up for PPA's drone webinar on August 19, 2016 at 12pm?

With the release of new regulations for aerial drones, we're on the cusp of a new era in drone photography. The possibilities are almost endless! But many photographers have questions, and need to know where to begin. So, we're here to help!

Remember to join drone experts Randy Braun and Stacy Garlington to get all the information you need to know about drones, and incorporating them in your photography business. Bring all of your questions!

Register for the webinar, and we'll see you there!

By Autumn Rice

With the release of new drone regulations lifting some of the harsh restrictions on drone usage in the photography business, the possibilities are almost endless. Drones, or UAS, are the hottest new tool being used by leading edge photographers, and client demand is swiftly growing. So why are photographers stumped? 

Although the regulations lift some of the restrictions, there are still more questions and photographers don't even know where to begin. What equipment do I need? How do I learn? What are the rules?

PPA is here to help! Join a live and informative discussion on Friday, August 19, 2016 at 12pm with drone industry insiders Randy Braun and Stacy Garlington as they respond to the most frequently asked questions about drone photography. And yes, this is free for anyone to stream!


Randy Jay Braun has been a professional photographer for thirty years on the island of Maui. For most of those years Braun also owned and operated Hawaii's most successful photography retail art gallery. When the DJI Phantom Quadcopter hit the market in 2012 Randy was the one of the first photographers to adapt to aerial photography. 

Stacy Garlington spends much of her time studying the art of photography and creating images using small aerial drones. Stacy noted the tremendous potential of aerial photography during the early stages of the budding small drone industry. She began to create impactful images using basic camera skills. Her work is now published in both Forbes and TIME magazines - examples of the new perspective achievable using this technology.

Any photographer hoping to use drones in their business should attend this webinar. These two experts can provide valuable information about this new technology to skyrocket your business into new territory.

Register for this webinar, and learn all you can about drone photography!

There is a lot of information out there about what is legal and what is not when it comes to drone photography. This webinar will separate fact from fiction concerning current regulations.
