New Orleans Magic

It was an intimate shootout as 20 photographers gathered to eat, network, and photograph beautiful models. Photographers experimented with projection art photography, played with continuous lighting, and had their photo taken in Vicki Derks photo booth! Mike Penney is the first to send us some of his creative imagery.

B&E Northwest Event Show at the Convention Center

On September 28th SPPA had a featured booth at the B&E Northwest Event Show at the WA State Convention Center in Seattle.

The members who contributed images had their work featured on a 50” flat screen display monitor, plus printed materials were handed out to the event attendees.

Thank you to all who contributed their time and effort to make this event a success!  And a special thank you to Marv Heston for providing the wonderful 50″ display to showcase the images!  It really made an impact.

Here is a slideshow of the images that were displayed during the event.
