Brand-new video tutorials for professional Photographers part of PhotoVision 2017's "Year of Inspiration".

ATLANTA, GA (March 12, 2017) - Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the largest association representing working photographers, is announcing the release of a new series of PhotoVision videos featuring Anne Geddes as a contributor for its 2017 "Year of Inspiration". The first video, "You as an Artist", is available now and new episodes with Anne Geddes will be released semi-monthly throughout the year. The PhotoVision programs are served through online streaming subscriptions and are available to photographers who are members of PPA at no additional cost, as this service comes included with their membership. Non-members can take advantage of a discounted, limited-time subscription rate of $49 annually (regularly $19.99 per month) using the promo code "PPA49" at checkout.

Photographers can tap into hundreds of videos on to learn about everything from lighting and posing to business topics such as marketing and sales, as well as studio design. Each episode expands and strengthens the professional photography industry as a whole, adding to PPA's mission to do the same. "PhotoVision gives photographers such a wealth of information. It's real-world knowledge presented by talented photographers who've proven themselves to be great business people as well," said Angela Kurkian, PPA's Director of Education. "PhotoVision strengthens photographers who want to learn and helps them grow in their profession. It is an amazing resource and, of course, incredible that we have the amazing Anne Geddes as one of our instructors this year."

For decades, Anne Geddes has been one of the most famous photographers in the world, thanks to her instantly recognizable newborn and child photography. Geddes is drawn to the art of storytelling through images--more specifically, children and the world they are revealing through their images. "One of the most important things for photographers is to find their message that sets them apart," she says. Geddes believes it's the mission of photographers to "help the world see in a different way" and PhotoVision lines up with her mission, aiming to inspire new and veteran photographers alike.

Geddes is currently working on releasing a new book, Baby, Look at You Now!, which will feature then-and-now photographs of her iconic subjects from 20 years ago. During this busy year, Geddes will also be leading PhotoVision viewers through several episodes in this year's new series on topics such as:

What it means to be creative for a photographerHow to produce meaningful photography workBeing authentic and of service to your chosen photographic subject matterAdvice to those getting started in the photography businessA photographer's evolution as an artistPhotographers being true to themselves living a creative life

2017's "Year of Inspiration" also includes brand-new videos with world-renowned photographer Sue Bryce.
