Lisa Asp of Twin Cities PPA (Minnesota, USA) interview us for our upcoming speaking engagements at the Animal Image Maker's Conference in 2020.
Not only are we excited to be joining TCPPA in this amazing conference experience, we were thrilled to be interviewed by Lisa.
If you don't know Lisa, she is not only an amazing person, an accomplished photographer, and great steward of our profession, she is the head of the Animal Image Makers Conference.
If you are interested in the Animal Image Makers Conference, all the details are here. We highly recommend this conference for those that make, or aspire to make, high quality images of pets as part of their profession or avocation.

As you know we sent the past week at The Animal Image Maker's Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA (April 2019). This is a niche conference of pet photographers and let us tell you - their first event was a huge hit!
The Master Lighting Course was a vendor - we sponsored a few things including the swags bags all the participants received. Lisa Asp and the team from Twin Cities PPA did an amazing job with this event.
As a vendor, we rented THREE booth areas so we could create images live. Yes! We made a studio on the trade show floor. We gave lots of demos, met lots of really creative and inspiration folks, and made connections that will likely last our lifetimes.

We also had a chance to meet up with photography...
Our very own Kimberly Buccheri gave a short presentation at The Animal Image Makers Conference in Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA today.
Her talk was titled "How I raised over $5000 for dog charity with a gallery show
in one night." She was speaking as part of a presentation on how photographers, through their actions and professionalism, can serve dog- and pet-related charities.
She, of course, is speaking of her gallery show titled "Rescued: From Shelter to Sculpture" she held here at our studio in Manchester, New Hampshire, USA to support one of our local dog charities: Canine Commitment of New England.
Kim and I run Kimberly Sarah Photography, where we create fine art pet portraits here in New Hampshire. And by all measures her talk was very well received! Way to go Kimberly!
We are set up in the Trade Show area and we hope you will join us for our scheduled demos, or drop in with your questions!
