Making it 


APPA Spring Seminar, April 11  9 am

Amy Jones earned the APPA Senior Photographer of the Year in 2014 with her beautiful senior portraiture. Amy's style is undeniable, and sought after by seniors that want sessions that are uniquely designed to their interests and personality. She may be found in a welding shop one day and a downtown coffee shop the next. She will be speaking on senior style, interviewing the  senior, and designing the perfect session for her client.

Tamara Smith earned the APPA Senior Photographer of the Year in 2015 with awesome and interesting senior portraits. Tamara offers some very special sessions that not only enhance the beauty of her portraits, but also enhances the experience for her clients. She has captured the grace of dancers using "magic dust" sessions and will be demonstrating that technique with a model. She also has developed other ways to bring in environmental effects that are controlled and lit beautifully.

Besides our two talented speakers, we will be learning and sharing with each other in a leader led round table discussion. Mike Kemp will be leading a group discussion on commercial photography. Becky Hardgrave will be leading the discussion on using social media. Amy Jones will lead pricing strategies, and Tamara Smith will lead the group in sharing ideas for senior rep programs.

Members get a very special price of just $49.  Non members are very welcome also for a price of just $89.
