As a new PPANE member, last April was my first experience as a NEIPP photography student. I was new, nervous, and sat in my car for about ½ hour (ok, maybe longer) before I got the courage to go into the Conference Center. I checked into my room, unpacked, played on the computer, rearranged the furniture…. Then I realized - I was going to have to face a crowd of “strangers”. Within minutes, I was encircled by a welcoming, warm group of photographers, sharing stories and enthusiastically discussing the upcoming NEIPP week.
The instructors are chosen from all over the country. A great learning opportunity for new and well-seasoned photographers. NEIPP provides a chance to study with the best! The instructors as well as fellow photography students are eager to teach and learn from each other. The enthusiasm is contagious.
The classes at NEIPP combined with the PPANE convention, print competition, lectures, and newsletters are only a percentage of the whole “picture”. The members, who come from all over New England, pull it all together. My membership has led to fantastic friendships with fellow photographers, an invaluable apprenticeship, and ongoing gatherings throughout the year. All things combined have all provided me the confidence and the courage to forge ahead in my photography business.

I really can not say enough great things about my time at NEIPP. Last year was my first year, and not my last! I hope to go every year until I am qualified to teach. I loved the people and the teachers where fantastic. I have made life long friends as well as improving my photography. My business was better this year as well as every picture I took!
So I really could go on and on about how much I loved NEIPP and how much I learned, and how it got me out of bed every morning, loved it! I really could go on and on! thank you ;)

My head is still swirling after everything I learned in your class at NEIPP. Seriously, the class was just amazing! As I am reviewing my notes, I have SOOOOO many action items and things to put in place that I am really excited about. Thank you both for everything!! Your energies, effort, enthusiasm and support are sincerely appreciated. I am quite certain that a great deal of my future success will be credited to you! If there is anything I can do for either of you, I hope you know all you have to do is ask.
Big thanks again to Ed and Linda for a really great class. I enjoyed the class! It confirmed alot, I learned alot, and I had a really fun time!! It was the best class I have done at NEIPP! Thank you.
I can't thank Ed and Linda enough for such an enjoyable and educational week. Both of you are very inspiring! You are going to laugh but for at least 48 hours after returning home and immersing myself back into my world of "Sally Bowen Chaos" I heard myself spouting "Ed Pedi-isms"...seriously; little phrases that he says that I know would not typically come out of my mouth. At my daughter's party, coaching my lacrosse teams...yikes! Needless to say I hope some of his and your success rubs off on me as well! Thanks again for everything!
It was such a great week I really can't thank Ed and Linda for all of your work. It has finally come together in my head! I am so confident about how to light and pose anywhere that I'm not afraid of anything anymore!! Thanks again!
This was a great school, everyone was very friendly.
I got the creative boost I wanted...Nice outside PPA perspective.
Thank you so much. Game changing week.
NEIPP was very inspirational.
