As a new 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. ~Susan Schale; Beverly, MA

I really can not say enough great things about my time at NEIPP. 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 ;) ~Genevieve Buck; Portsmouth, NH

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. ~Lisa Tommaney
