2018 Meetings and Events

When I first decided that I wanted to have my own photography studio, I made the decision to join the PPSO.  This turned out to be one of the best decisions of my business life.  Now I know in todays world that you can ‘in the comfort of your home’ view tons of online education. But you can’t watch an instructor live, and you are not able to ask questions to that instructor or other professionals sitting with you.  This along with being able to make long lasting business and professional relationships with many of the areas top photographers is priceless.  The extremely low membership cost to join the PPSO is a “no brainer” to anyone who wants to succeed and prosper in this profession.
