A Re-Cap of the AzPPA Open House at ArtisanHD Headquarters

What a great way to kick off the New Year!

Many existing members of AzPPA were happy to catch up on January 3, 2017 after attending the 2016 Fall Photo Excursion to Page, Arizona, one of many trips organized by the diligent staff of AzPPA. Several members captured amazing shots and were eligible to enter them in the Peoples Choice Award competition. The winning printed images were voted on by all attendees to the Open House.

Master Photographers Kay Eskridge and Bob Coates spoke about their journey through their photography careers, and we had panel discussions to answer questions on Business, Lighting, Workflow, and Technical Topics.

Photographic Reproduction & Artisan Colour

As luck would have it, one of Artisan Colour’s very own seasoned photo re-touchers and Photoshop World Guru Award Winner – submitted two amazing shots from the Photo Excursion organized by AzPPA. Of course, ArtisanHD (the e-commerce division of our parent company Artisan Colour) assisted him with the finest in photographic reproduction so he could submit the prints to the judges…

And it paid off! His “Secret Canyon” image, printed on FujiFlex and mounted to 3mm Black Sintra won 1st place!

Just goes to show – when a good image meets the right material, it becomes a GREAT PRINT.

And that’s what makes ArtisanHD a print partner, not simply a supplier. We are just as invested in your success as you are – be it landscape photography, fine art, or commercial prints – we’re here to help!

And we’re not just saying that… Supporting local artists and organizations is an ongoing endeavor. The proof is in the printing. Take a look at AZ Highways.  This year we will donate a Custom Dual Layer print to the upcoming AzPPA State Convention!

(last year’s winner was VERY happy with this custom piece, see the image to the left)
