A couple of exciting things have been going on around Adrian Hitt Photography! If you pick up this month’s issue of Professional Photographer magazine, you will see a couple of familiar faces! Adrian (and Benny) were featured in an article highlighting the development of her business and her focus on dog photography. It is one of Adrian’s favorite magazines and she’s honored to be featured!
Last week, Adrian attended the annual Imaging USA conference, this year hosted at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center. The three-day convention is a combination of a tradeshow, photography seminars, and networking opportunities. This year, approximately 200 vendors were present and more than 10,000 international photographers – a record number – attended the event! As you can imagine, Adrian had the opportunity to meet several photographers, including one of her favorites, Jose Villa, a wedding and portrait photographer located in Southern California.
The event is hosted by Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the largest non-profit professional photographer association. This fall Adrian was named the Emerging Pro from the AN-NE Marketing Awards hosted by PPA and she was honored at the award ceremony at the close of the convention. In addition, two of Adrian’s photos were enlarged for banners at the convention at the PPA booth (that we hope to have video coverage of soon!) Overall, it was an energetic and inspiring event and Adrian encourages all professional photographers to join PPA and attend next year’s convention (San Antonio, TX – January 16 – 18, 2011).
To close today’s blog entry, if you haven’t already, I want to encourage you to donate to a charity that is contributing to relief efforts in Haiti. Charity Navigator lists and rates several organizations that are working in Haiti and provides tips for donating. We plan on doing our part by donating $50 from every session booked between now and February 5, 2010. Note that you don’t have to be photographed by February 5, just book a session – both kid and dog sessions qualify! Thanks to all and have a great day!
