ArtisanHD was a proud sponsor at this years ‘AzPPA 2019 State Convention’. The Arizona Professional Photographer(s) Association held an educational 3-day photography event with guest speakers, interactive workshops, raffles, and a live image competition. The event was filled with talented artists, models & stylists, beautiful images and a whole lot of camera gear!

We were thrilled to have been able to provide the addition of photo printing to the mix. Our booth was set up with product samples, photo print displays, and educational content on our fine art printing services. We also took part in the raffle by donating a free custom print to one lucky winner!

Who is AzPPA?

AzPPA is a non-profit organization that started in 1951, for aspiring and professional photographer(s) based in Arizona. By collaborating with other like-minded artists in the industry, the goal surrounding the club is for photographers to advance photography as an art and profession. 

Their membership consists of photographers from various backgrounds and experience levels. Some of which include portrait and wedding photographers, landscape, architectural, commercial photography and so much more. Learn more about AzPPA and become a member today!

Hands-on Workshops  & Image Competitions

The 3-day event consisted of fun, interactive workshops. Through this, the photographers were able to tighten up their portrait & lighting skills whilst working with live models and still objects. Members at the event were also able to play around with a variety of professional lenses. Courtesy of sponsor Tamron Lenses!

The event was also holding an image competition. Images of those who entered were displayed on a live feed where the commentary of the judges could be overheard. As a result, the photographer’s could take note on the judge’s comments/feedback as a furthering education tool towards their craft.

Professional ‘Photographer Of The Year’ Award Winner

Finally, an award ceremony was held on the last day of the event. The highest ranked images walked away with a custom AzPPA trophy to proudly display. Congratulations to Artisan Colours very own talented Paul Bartell. He walked away with “Photographer Of The Year”, 1st place Illustrative Category, 1st place Portrait Category, 6 Merits AND 2 images into Loan Collection. Wow! Amazing work, we are so proud!
