PPA has allowed me to meet so many great photographers and mentors from all over the country. Everyone that I've had the opportunity to learn from has provided me sound advice and been straight up with me what it takes to make it in business. I've enjoyed forming friendships with other photographers around the country too that I can bounce ideas off of or get opinions on a photograph... I've taken the business basics class as a matter of wanting my business to be sustainable and operate in the black. I had the good fortune of learning from Ann Monteith and Carol Andrews 3 years ago and have operated in the black since their class. It's a hard reality to sit down and examine the business side of your business but understanding it helped me make corrections. I would encourage photographers that haven't taken the class to do it sooner rather than later.Hide Pete Rezac • PPA Member Since 2009
