PPA has helped me stand apart from those who think the status quo is acceptable. The lessons I have learned from the online offerings, classes I have taken, and the friends I have made through PPA have been invaluable… I got started in photography due to my other entertainment work. At the time, I was working for the Oprah Winfrey Show in Chicago as the Master Carpenter. We were building scenery for one of the episodes and the discussion came up that I should be documenting the things that I was building. So I started photographing sets and scenic elements. Later, while on tour with Cirque du Soleil, I moved to shooting people. I found I enjoyed that much more, having the people to interact with.Hide Jonathan Givens • PPA Member Since 2011
