District Trustees:

In order to stay ahead of the competition, we all have to strive for excellence in everything that we do. From running a professional organization like the Professional Photographers of Ohio, to running your studio, being the best we can be and doing the best job possible has to be our ultimate goal. The PPO is constantly striving to find ways to help you develop professionally in order to ensure your success. The Northeast District Print Competition being held in conjunction with Photoblast, can help you stay ahead of your competition. This competition will allow you to have your work judged not only against photographers from Ohio, but potentially from a number of other states. The programming that we’ve put together for you for this year’s Convention is amazing. There is truly something for everyone. Whether your niche is weddings, seniors, families and children or other types of photography, this line up is first rate. The Kalahari Resort and Convention Center is one of the finest in the state and even this part of the country. The expansion that they have done since we were here last year is remarkable. The 120,000 sq. ft. addition brings Kalahari's convention center total square footage to 215,000. This facility is truly first rate! I would like to thank PPO President Kristin Woods for her unparalleled leadership this year. Kristin provided direction to the board and my staff throughout the year. My staff and I are very grateful for her passion and dedication to PPO. Her direction and guidance made this a banner year for PPO. I encourage you to thank Kristin when you see her. Accomplishments under Kristin’s presidency include a new logo, a new tagline, a new website, streamlining our registration and dues process, creation of an Aspiring Member category, a rebranded Annual Convention and Trade Show and a rebranded Fall Conference. Her hard work and vision truly paid off! Thanks also to my staff for their hard work and dedication. They helped make the above-mentioned changes possible. We look forward to serving you for many years to come! 4

The Ohio Photographer - 59th Annual Convention Issue

Message From The President by Kristin Woods, Ohio CPP

When you are President of an organization like PPO, a year sure can go by quickly. What initially seems like a lot of time to make a difference; ends up going by in a flash. PPO’s leadership got together in July 2011 for a strategic planning session to try to do just that – to make a difference. We wanted to make a difference to PPO and its members for not just this year, but for years to come. We wanted to envision and implement some positive changes that would position our organization to be an indispensible resource for professional photographers in Ohio. We wanted to examine some of our outdated ways in order to catapult our organization into the future. What we ended up with was complete rebranding of our organization and its events. Some of the changes you will see reflected in this magazine, some you will notice throughout the course of the year. One of the first things that you will notice is we have a new logo and tagline. We received 173 entries from designers in our logo redesign contest. The logo you see in this magazine was the one that our board

members liked best. We also wanted a tagline that we could incorporate with our logo that explained who we are and what we want to accomplish. If you haven’t already, you will start to notice the three words, “Connect. Enrich. Thrive,” tied to and printed on virtually everything that we do. We want our members to Connect with us and with each other. We want to Enrich both your career and your lives. We want to help you Thrive in your career. Photoblast 2012 is our new name for the PPO’s Annual Convention and Trade Show, being held March 1418 at Kalahari Resort and Conference Center. We wanted to communicate the fact that our show is both educational and fun. The ideas that you can get from our great lineup of speakers can lay the

groundwork for your future. You’ll have a great time, while learning from the best that our industry has to

offer. For those of you who have been attending this event for many years, you will see that we’ve also streamlined our registration options with the hope of making the registration process easier for everyone. Our Fall Conference and Trade Show, which will be held in November in Columbus is now called PhotoU. You are never too old to go back to school to learn new techniques or concepts that you can use to make your business more successful. PhotoU is for both the seasoned and new photographer alike. PPO leadership also examined our membership categories. We wanted to remove as many barriers to joining as possible, while still keeping PPO an organization for true professionals. Most notably, we added and Aspiring member option. This allows the individual who is just getting started in the business to become a part of PPO at a reduced rate and give PPO the opportunity to share with them the right way to do business. All of these changes have laid the groundwork for a great new image for the PPO. We’ve completely revamped our website, we have a fully electronic newsletter and both our printed and online image has changed. If you haven’t lately, be sure to check out our website at ppofohio.org and our Facebook page at www.facebook.com/ppofohio. Our board and staff worked very hard on these changes. We want your PPO experience to be the best it can be. I hope you will agree that we have made a difference this year!

The convention kicks off with an image competition, where some of the best photographers will be displaying their prized work. Qualified national judges will evaluate each image based on its own merits using the 12 elements of a merit print. Those images earning high scores will be displayed from Saturday, March 17 at 8:00 am until Sunday, March 18 at 3:00 pm in the Foyer at the Kalahari Resort. Last year over 400 prints were shown and we are excited to see what this year's competition will bring.

Ask the experts. We will have several Master Photographers on hand at the image display to answer questions on your images and give you tips on how to make them better. This is an excellent opportunity to help you fine-tune your images for national competition. We recommend you bring printed copies of your photographs as there will only be one computer to view digital photos.

Capping off this incredible experience will be the Convention Party and Print Awards Ceremony on Saturday evening! This year's theme is the great outdoors! Come in and relax with good food, drinks, and great company as the awards ceremony and party get underway. The presentation of scholarships, and special recognitions will take place at this exciting event. The Recognition and Award Ceremonies are open to all registered attendees.

Why Didn't Someone Tell Me This Before Now! Early Bird Speaker 2

Jon Allyn

Saturday March 17, 2012 7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. Room - Cypress About Jon...For over thirty years, Jon Allyn has been fascinated with light. His ability to create and control the subtle qualities of light has defined his unique style of illustrative portraiture. Jon contends that “the Illustrative Portrait takes the viewer beyond the initial glance to a visual response that provokes interaction on an emotional level”. His powerful images and artistic figure studies have earned him countless awards including PPA’s Imaging Excellence Award, nineteen Photographer-of-theYear honors, most recently PPA Diamond and was honored at PPA’s Grand Imaging ceremony for his illustrative work. As a popular speaker for over two decades, Jon has shared his passion for photography through educational and entertaining programs. His 2004 induction into the Wisconsin Professional Photographers Association’s Hall of Fame and the CameraCraftsmen of America were both milestones in his continuing quest for excellence. About the Program...This fast-paced program will give you the tools necessary to obtain consistently, predictable results with your lighting. You’ll understand quantity of light, quality of light, specularity, contrast control and much more. This means your creativity will EXPLODE because you’re in control. Its been said, “A good photographer can “see” the light.” Jon Allyn contends that, “A great photographer can create the light that only their imagination sees.” Forget the myths you’ve been told about lighting and learn exactly what you need to know. Once you see how easy it is to create powerful lighting, you’ll wonder why someone didn’t tell you all this before now. Once you understand and apply the secrets of lighting it all becomes second nature thus allowing your right brain the freedom to create. Don’t just take a photograph, when you can make a photograph.

WYSAAWYG (What You See Ain't Always What You Get) Speaker 3

Fuzzy & Shirley Duenkel Saturday March 17, 2012 9:15 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Room - Indigo Bay

About Fuzzy and Shirley...In 1975, Fuzzy and Shirley Duenkel of West Bend, Wisconsin started their "mom and pop" business, as many photographers do, when a friend asked Fuzzy to photograph her wedding. In 1996, the Duenkels dropped weddings to concentrate solely on portraits. Fuzzy and Shirley's business evolved into mostly a specialty studio with under 100 total sessions per year. While they photograph babies, children, families, couples and glamour, high school seniors are his favorite. Seniors are his easiest subjects since they require little space (unlike families), hold still (unlike kids), do what they're told (unlike babies), understand English (unlike pets), and will give him as much time as he needs (unlike weddings). Fuzzy practically insists on working on location with each session. Fuzzy feels his specialty is his total comfort with creating portraits in clients' homes, especially if he has never been there before. His goal is to make a variety of images that don't necessarily look like they were done in the clients' bedrooms, garages, or hallways ... even though they were! Fuzzy handles all image capture and processing. Shirley handles everything else, which includes consultations, sales and orders. The two compliment each other's strengths and weaknesses. Fuzzy started entering prints in Wisconsin PPA competition in 1993. In that and subsequent competitions he's entered, Fuzzy was awarded four Fuji Masterpiece Awards, earned top awards for the Wisconsin PPA senior folio competition twelve times; was Wisconsin's Photographer of the Year twice; won Senior Photographer's International folio competitions five times; Senior Portrait Artists' Photographer of the Year, had 29 prints selected for National Traveling Loan Collection, two for Disney's Epcot Center, one for Photokina in Germany, one for the International Hall of Fame and Museum in Oklahoma, in addition to numerous other awards and accolades. About the Program...On-location lighting has long been Fuzzy's specialty ... and obsession. He'll focus on the various lighting tools and techniques we must master if we want to continue to be viable and relevant in today's fiercely competitive and challenging market. Fuzzy will show examples and diagrams of the lighting used to create extraordinary images of high school seniors in very ordinary locations. If you're unsure of your ability to cope with the contrast of sunlight, the cross-color complexities of shade, or the dull flatness of overcast skies ... this program will not only answer your questions, but make you more money than this convention cost you!

Reality Check For Wedding Photographers Speaker 6

Pete Wright

Sunday March 18, 2012 3:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. Room - Indigo Bay About Pete...As a fourth-generation artist and a second generation photographer, Pete Wright was raised in North Carolina in an environment rich in art and photography. His photographs were first published when he was 14 years old when he accepted his first paying job as a photographer working for a regional newspaper. Years later, in 1997 PW Photography’s first studio opened in Greenville, North Carolina. The following year the company moved to Richmond, Virginia. The studio’s work has ranged from portraits and weddings to sports and editorials. During his 25 years of working as a photographer Pete has earned the distinction of Master Photographer and Photographic Craftsman from PPA. He also received Photographer of the Year honors from PPA five consecutive years from 2007 through 2011, has been awarded several Fuji and Kodak Gallery Awards, was accepted into the PPA Loan Collection multiple times, has been featured in several national publications and is fortunate to have lectured around the world about his passion for photography. He loves to teach and inspire others to follow or find their passion in photography and use that passion to build a successful business! About the Program...According to the U.S Census, in 2009 the United States had the lowest number of weddings since 1968. A 40 year low in weddings along with a surge in the number of photographers willing to photograph them meant the game was changing and the rules we used to play by were now out the window. Now the brides are returning to the market in 2011 and they are spending on average $5K more per wedding than they did in 2008. So with brides coming back and spending more money, now is the time for photographers to get a reality check and learn everything they need to know on how to get those big budget weddings to book with you. Brides are more savvy now and know the difference between the photographer that is using Photoshop to fix photos and the ones that use it to enhance them, they are more willing to pay for quality. Brides have the world at their fingertips as a resource to find the perfect photographer for them, the World Wide Web has grown. They also now expect more for their money when they book a photographer for their wedding day. What that means for photographers is, WE HAVE TO BE BETTER! We have to take better photos, be aware of all of the places brides are looking, know about the latest trends in our industry, and we have to be able to quickly adapt. It is no longer ok to sit back and wait for the phone to ring, now you have to be aggressive and and market yourself unlike ever before. Come sit in with Pete Wright as he speaks about the changing wedding photo industry. He will reveal the things you need to do to improve as a photographer, the things that brides now expect, the best places to be found by brides, and the things you need to do to make sure that you stand out in a very crowded market. It’s time to upgrade your business and do a complete reboot so that you are doing all of the things that the modern bride expects to see from their wedding photographer! www.ppofohio.org -

PRESEN T IN G T H E A N N UA L KODAK GALLERY AND GALLERY ELITE AWARDS. Kodak introduced the Gallery Awards in 1985 as a way to honor and promote the importance and value of excellence in professional photography.

Entry Guidelines for the KODAK Gallery and Gallery Elite Awards

Kodak has always represented quality imaging through its many products and services and will continue to work to elevate the importance of professional, quality imaging within the industry, as well as with customers. It’s a connection we’re pleased to make. Therefore, we are delighted once again to salute and support outstanding professional photography and photographers by presenting our annual Gallery and Gallery Elite Awards. The Gallery Awards are judged on a state or regional basis, with winners going on to compete at the national level for the GalleryElite Award. Gallery Awards will be presented, throughout the year, at annual Professional Photographers of America (PPA) regional and state conventions — in addition to those events’ customary awards. The annual Gallery Elite Award will be judged prior to the national PPA conference and trade show and honored at the Gallery Elite Award Gala, held during the PPA’s national gathering, “Imaging USA,” traditionally in January of each year. Photographers will be considered for a KODAK Gallery Award in each of the following five categories: • Portrait or Landscape Print • Wedding Print • Illustrative, Commercial, Electronic Imaging Print • Printed Album or Book (any category) • Print or Album using KODAK PROFESSIONAL ENDURA Metallic Paper A region and/or state organization may award up to five (5) trophies total, in any combination of the designated categories. For example, if there are no entries to be judged or that meet the judging-point criteria in a certain category, more than one Gallery Award may be given in the other designated categories. However, Kodak prefers that one Gallery Award be given in each of the five categories, provided each entry has achieved the minimum 80-point criteria. The primary purpose of the awards is to recognize and further the use of professionallyprinted photography, especially if it utilizes KODAK PROFESSIONAL Products (papers and chemistry). Therefore, Gallery and Gallery Elite trophies are intended to be awarded for prints and printed albums, not electronic-only images and video albums (e.g., CD, DVD), which are outside of Kodak’s intended purpose.
