PDA Events and Photo Op's and Help-Portrait event

From: Ronald T.
Sent on: Saturday, December 5, 2009 3:42 PM
We are moving full steam ahead toward the December 12th Help-Portrait event. We have joined forces with Help Los Angeles. There will be a print kiosk at the event, which will allow subjects to receive their prints in about two hours. The link to the organizing site for December 12th is this group is organized by Jen May Photography.

For those of you who cannot attend the larger event, but will participate, please notify me no later than December 11th. Pictage has also committed to printing eight by tens for the event. We will need to provide the images to Pictage on a CD. The images on the CD will be printed out and then you can provide the prints to your subjects. I must hear from you in order for us to work out the details.

I want to thank all of you who have applied for the positions. I received an e-mail from in appreciation of having sent such a high-quality of applicants to them. They needed to increase their roles of nationwide examiners from 190 to 600; they now have 430 people that have already been accepted to the Examiner program.

The also would like more referrals, if possible, their goal is to be a one-stop information center for the web. Here's information again if anyone else who would like to apply for the positions at the Use me (Ron Talley, LA cultural photographer examiner) as the person you were referred by.

Studio Open House and PDA Party

For the models that will be attending the Open House, we are planning to establish schedules for photographers to occupy the setup spaces. When possible, please e-mail me your arrival time, so I can schedule you as photographers for that space. Your RSVP is appreciated.

Irving Penn exhibit at the Getty will be leaving January 10, 2010. This is a must-see exhibit for photographers. And I promise you that you will be very inspired by the work that he provided the world. Click link for more information.

I have received many emails from travel companies wanting to set up discount trips to places like: India, China, Africa, and Russia. How many of our group would be willing to travel to other countries in the coming year? Also which country would be preferred for travel?

Please feel free to email me your responses to this question

Member Laurie Allread has recently returned from Antarctica and has increased her catch of beautiful penguin images. She just recently participated in the Irvine California Center?s art exhibit for all media and fine artwork on November 20, 2009.

There is great demand for her to exhibit her work and she has become as a well-publicized photographer. My personal 2009 calendar is down to the last month, so I was glad to hear that her new calendar is out now on and has received great reviews.

Our member Lafayette Kyles, has been under the weather, we want to wish him the best towards a speedy recovery.
