Last night was the annual Tampa Area Professional Photographers Association Holiday Party and Banquet (that’s a long name..). This is when we all get together, hug, laugh and give each other awards. It’s a great group of photographers and the only party I can ever go to where I can hand my camera to someone and say, “Take my picture” with confidence that I’ll be in focus and my head won’t be cut off.
I picked up a couple of “Certificates of Appreciation” last night which is how we say “thanks for doing stuff for the organization.” I also was awarded “Top 10 Photographer” and 1st Place in the Social Function category (which is better known as the wedding category).
Then, today I opened the latest issue of Professional Photographer Magazine and there’s my picture on the page promoting Imaging USA, the big convention they hold every year. This year it’s in Nashville and I’ll be speaking.
Finally, a bunch of albums arrived from my lab!
All in all, a great day!
