SDPhotoPros was created
in January 2000, by Martin Trailer and Paul M. Bowers to provide a private
forum for encouraging the discussion of business practices among the San
Diego, California commercial, portrait/wedding and editorial photography
community. Membership to this group is limited to working professionals,
their assistants and students majoring in photography and photojournalism.
Is this ASMP, APA or PPA? No- we are not affiliated with any specific
business or trade organization, but you are encouraged to participate
there as well. The immediacy and ease of access via email makes our type
of group powerful and timely. Asking for help brings faster response from
one's peers. Pricing questions and suggestions are answered with a variety
of viewpoints so quickly, it can help out in a jam RIGHT NOW.
