Professional Photographer Lecture Series (Mr. Paul Martin), Annual Meeting

'Paul' has a passion for light. Whether his subject is an inanimate object or if they have a pulse, everyone and everything can look great in front of a camera. Paul's goal is to show others what is unique about themselves.

Who inspires him? You, his customers of course. He does what he does because he loves photography. Everyone has a story to tell and Paul wants to help you tell that story.

He is based out of Colorado Springs, Co but will travel to capture that special moment. 

Plus a short speel from Charlie about 'us as a community.'

So I hope that you will join me.  I look forward to recognizing the terrific work of our fantastic volunteer leadership and what they have accomplished in 2013, and talking about our outlook for 2014.

 

So come and have fun :-)

Charlie

    This was my first Meetup ever. It certainly met expectations and I was delighted to meet so many in my field. Well organized and informative. Thank you!

    Paul was great! The meeting went a little too long so I didn't get to see/hear all of Paul's lighting prezo. Though a lot of the meeting was about justifying the membership dues, which I though was unnecessary (time-wise--not money-wise! $12 is NOT too much compared to ANY other art membership I pay.)

    Thanks, Paul, Charlie and Amy (cause we know Paul couldn't do what he does without you!) for the meeting today. Appreciate all that you do for the group. Thanks for sharing your images and the lighting information, Paul. It's fun to look at them and try to figure out how many lights you used. Especially when you're pulling it off with just one Speedlite.

    Hi, I have been taking pictures for almost 50 years, but sure have a lot to learn about digital photography! I want to meet new people and learn as much as I can from other photographers.
