Postcard from Dennis Brack
An invitation came into the WHNPA website for the WHNPA president to speak at the opening of the Shenzhen International Photography Industrial Park.
I replied saying that we are honored and asked who will pay the airfare and expenses. They replied saying that the industrial organization was. Many emails and finally I am here. What an experience. My photograph is actually on the side of the building.
I now know how our candidate and subjects of our scrums feel being surrounded by photographers all trying to get to where they think is the right position is quite an experience.
There are many creative people here and thousands of opportunities. Perhaps this trip will develop into an opportunity for WHNPA, we’ll see—stay tuned. I would love to hear member’s thoughts and ideas!
We have rescheduled the WHNPA Golf outing. The new date is Friday May
30th. Please forward this to any friends who may be interested. (they don’t have to be whnpa members)
