Supporting a Worthy Cause at AzPPA for Local Photographers

This years’ Photo Frenzy was quite the success with a chance for expert printing for artists! Not only were participants able to get some valuable peer-to-peer reviews of their portfolios, but they also received feedback on composition, lighting and other techniques from the Pros. The workshops, with 4 well-known photographers (Dennis Chamberlain, Kristin Slice, Tim Meyer ash Cheri & Dennis Hammon), were noted as very accessible with smaller breakout group discussions that really got the crowd engaged. Time was even set aside to go out, take some shots and go back to the groups for review.

ArtisanHD – provided brochures to all attendants and we supplied a “mockup” of a piece that was the Main Attraction at the  Silent Auction  (Dual Layer Print – donated value $425). What was so popular about this donated product/service is the fact that the winner was going to be asked to supply their own amazing photo and ArtisanHD would then custom make it.

Ken Johnson was the winner of our print and he already supplied us with an amazing image.  He thought it was a great event (not just because he won) but he felt it was a better value than other, larger events, as the teachers/presenters were more accessible.
