PhotoPro Network


    A message from the President

  I am excited as 2017 finds Photo Pro Expo off to a good start with Bert and Al Benkie having taken the reins and pulled off  another  wonderful convention.

 After 5 years at the helm, Dave, La Dawn, and Randy left big shoes to fill as our Expo has become the benchmark to which all  other  conventions are being compared. 

 Although Jessica Vogel is our new Executive Director, but is certainly not new to PPN.

 Jessica has served for many years as a Board member and Past President and will be the smiling face you see at all of our functions as well as the knowledgeable voice and person behind the keyboard when you have questions.

 Many of you do not realize that Photo Pro Network is the Association that hosts Expo each year, with events during the summer    and fall for  image makers from over 40 states and several counties. It has been around for over 70 years and was once called The Kentucky Professional  Photographers Association. 

As our Association has grown, with over 50% of our members and Expo attendees now from out-of- state we decided to re-brand to PPN about 7 years ago to reflect the national and international makeup of our membership. 

Photo Pro Network will be undergoing some great improvements in the next year that will keep the Association at the forefront of photographic education and fellowship.

Just attending Expo is a great learning experience but now is the time to become a member and experience the full benefits we offer.

Discounts for our schools in the summer and fall, such as Richard Sturdivant in September, access to our members only website page, and free one-on-one portfolio mentoring and studio management guidance by some of the industry’s best and brightest stars. 

My love of our wonderful profession and the people in it has kept me coming back for more than 4 decades and I am not finished!
