Inspiring professional photographers through a passionate pursuit and exchange of ideas, artistic expression, education, growth and teamwork.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE
Nick Seth-Smith, 2019 IEPPV President
We are a group of photographers and videographers who are dedicated to the ongoing development of our craft. Whether you are a full-time professional, part-time pro or enthusiast, we cater to all skill levels and have something to offer.
Part of my job as your president is to have a vision — Here is mine. I see the line between photography and videography becoming less and less distinct over time and as such, we are dedicated to grow and explore the ‘V’ in our name. Whether it’s a slideshow, Flixel image, time-lapse or pure-play video clip, the moving image is an extension of the still image. Both are about storytelling and both disciplines use light and color, however, the focus and emphasis are sometimes different yet equally critical.
We’re also ready to embrace technology in 2019. In addition to our plans for providing more education through webinars, we will be transitioning our Image Competitions to a fully online platform. As a result of this change, our hope is to reach further afield to bring the very best judges in and extend the learning opportunity to those who could not previously attend in-person.
Welcome, again, to your photography association. We are here to make your experience the very best it can be. If you want or need something, have a compliment or criticism to make, or just want to chat please feel free to reach out—We are here for you.
