I'm the kid you hated in school. Hand always raised high, asking questions from the teacher about a particular topic. I didn't mind homework or research. For me, it was just more opportunities to get better acquainted with an area that could be interesting. It wasn't always easy, though. When I struggled with my German classes at university, I got a tutor and then put together a study group for all of my classmates so that we could learn from each other. Not only did I pass the classes, but I also developed lifelong friendships. As you can see, I love learning and believe you should grasp every opportunity presented.
At PPA, we also believe in education. We believe that learning never stops and that no matter where you are in your career, you can still have those "AHA!" moments. You never know what workshop, class or seminar could change how you do business and approach your craft. Such quality educational offerings (in all forms) separate PPA from other organizations. We offer the best education throughout the year with some of the best instructors in the industry...because we want you to be the best photographers.
For this week's Vital Signs, we talked with PPA Affiliate instructors about what they believe are today's important topics for learning. Those topics don't involve learning to conjugate the verb "to be" in the German plusquamperfekt konjunktiv (be thankful!), but with PPA's educational offerings, you have a world of cool ideas and concepts to discover.
