Today's episode on The PhotoTellers wins the distinction of "longest title ever." Why the long title? As I write each post, I try to give a teaser as to the content. This episode therefore wins not for its duration [shorter than many episodes], but because it encompasses a great deal of information.

My guest is Lori Craft, current President of the Professional Photographers of America [PPA]. She enjoyed her first-ever trip to the Texas School of Professional Photography this year, and kindly joined me for a rich conversation. If the title doesn't tell you, here's what you can expect:

  • What is the PPA & why is it the organization uniquely suited to help shape Copyright laws?
  • How she and her husband have shifted their portrait business with the changing economy
  • What is PPA doing in the world of drones? Why?
  • In Lori's opinion, what is the #1 reason to participate in the PPA?

See the work that Lori and her husband Dennis are creating HERE, and also find out more about the work of PPA HERE.

Since my conversation with Lori at TX School, I interviewed David Trust, CEO of PPA about the Copyright protection initiative. That conversation gives more detailed, more recent information on that issue:
