I’m currently in Atlanta, having presented Beyond PMS yesterday morning for the fine APA-Atlanta folks. Tomorrow, I have individual meetings with some of the fine photographers in the Southeast, and not just from Atlanta. Like the presentation, the consultations are bringing people from places like eastern Tennessee. I’m honored that so many people have made such efforts to come see me.
Danelle Dalpra is the Director of this chapter and she is amazing. Besides all her hard work for APA-A, she is an outstanding producer who can make your project run much more smoothly no matter where you and/or your project may be. Producers aren’t used enough, in my opinion. The value that Danelle can bring to a project is so much greater than the cost–the photographer gets to focus on the creativity, the client gets taken care of at a higher level, the details are left in the hands of someone whose entire mission is to focus on them. The resulting shoot experience and, yes, even the final images are better than they would otherwise have been.
I want to thank her for all her hard work in making the event a success, as well as her kindness to me. And thank you to all the attendees–especially those who drove from places like Savannah and Alabama.
