Here is what a few photographers have to say.........
Thank you for a well-planned and designed talk for our Wednesday, April 19, 2006 monthly program. You held our members attention they couldn't take notes fast enough and stayed well beyond the two-hour block. Your fast-paced, high energy talk keep members engaged throughout the evening. Two hours was not nearly enough time to absorb all the information you presented. And we hope to have you back again for a full-day program in the very near future. Our members offered rave reviews of not only the material you covered, but your enthusiasm for your craft. Thanks again for taking time out of your thriving business to share with our members. Sincerely, Tod Margolis PPARI President

Dan Doke from Mass gave a great program on album design, shooting and inspiration to how he photographs 80 plus wedding himself and his studio shooting 200 plus. Dan has won Mass Photographer of the year for several years and best wedding album too. I'm inspired that someone that photographs so many wedding still does it in such a high level and his very creative. Not cookie cutter in the slightest. Also, it is cool to see someone with more energy than me and has a love of photography and sharing.... Plus again, not enough time to speak but, was very focused on his topic and has lots of things to teach. Thank you Dan...
