Professional Photographers of America charity arm is putting on an all day set of Periscopes around photography education on Tuesday, December 1st. Photographers will be volunteering to present 5-10 minute mini sessions on many photography subjects including posing, lighting techniques, marketing and more. Periscopes will be presented every half hour from 8AM EST to Midnight EST.
11AM EST I’ll be sharing information on how PPA’s Imaging Competition can help your photography career from an education and marketing standpoint.
Sessions will be going on all day on Twitter’s Periscope Platform with the address @ppacharities. There’s no charge for any of this education but a donation to PPA Charities is encouraged.
Here’s a list of some of the other professional photographers volunteering their time. Kay Eskridge, Carl Caylor, Lori Nordstrom, Elizabeth & Trey Homen, Beth Forester, Don Dickson, and many more. Bert Benke is heading up this event doing a couple presentations and scheduling and organizing all the photographers.
See you on #GivingTuesday!
Yours in Creative Photography, Bob
PS – In 2005, PPA Charities named Operation Smile as it’s charitable partner. A perfect fit for photographers, whose daily business is creating smiles for their clients, Operation Smile’s mission is repairing childhood facial deformities including cleft lips and cleft palates. In 2014, PPA Charities also partnered with Dando Amor, a non-profit organization founded by photographers that is dedicated to improving the quality of life of orphans living in third-world countries.
