The MPPA Convention and Trade Show was last weekend. The only thing remaining is the Thank You e-mails to Vendors, informing the Raffle Winners of their good fortune, and the wrap up Board Meeting and subsequent Newsletter. It was a lot of work, but well worth it. We had a very successful Trade Show and are looking forward to how we can make it even better next year.
The shoulder is healing well from the Rotator Cuff surgery, and the Physical Therapy is progressing nicely. I should be able to pick up my camera in about another week and a half. It has been too long and I can hardly wait to get back in the Studio. I am planning on doing a few gratis Headshots and Portraits to get back in the groove.
Easter and Mother's Day is looming on the horizon. Isn't it time you thought of having a Professional Photograph taken of your family? Your mother and/or father would love to have a well done Portrait of your family. And yes, Father's Day will be here before you know it.
The Studio will be open for business on 7 April. Schedule your Headshot, Individual Portrait, or Family Portrait by phoning 207-650-0200, or by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org. Samples of my work can be seen at www.jimwalkerphotography.com.
I have agreed to photograph the WMPG Fashion Show again this year. It will take place on 23 April at the Port City Music Hall. This is always a fun event with many local designers, and their creations. The designs range from the mundane to the outrageous, and everything in between.
So far, I have booked four elopements, or small weddings. The rest of the year may turn out alright in the long run. Being out of commission because of a necessary operation is concerning, but not the end of the world.
In addition to being on the Board of Directors for the Maine Professional Photographers Association (MPPA), I also produce their newsletters a couple of times a month, am on the Scholarship Committee, and am a member of the Professional Photographers Association (PPA). Recently, I accepted a position as the Maine representative to the Professional Photography Association of New England (PPANE).
All in all, it may prove to be a very busy year....
