The offices have been buzzing this fall with new developments including our latest social media initiatives, revamped workshop lectures, finalizing of our 2013 lineup and of course the mysterious & exciting Five Year Anniversary Trip!
As we finalize our lineup for 2013, remember to keep your eyes on our social media networks. From now until November, we continue to offer our FotoFriday discounts and deals. Likewise, we have lots of inspirational and educational information from our staff about the photo industry.
Finally, feel free to share this newsletter with your friends (they can easily opt in at the bottom of this email). Enjoy the newsletter and we look forward to seeing you in the field!

Project New Orleans 2013
Project New Orleans 2013 is 1/3 Full!
We are so excited for the return of our Project New Orleans workshop in collaboration with Leica Camera! This is our most popular domestic workshop and it fills up every year by January. Click here learn more about the workshop, the instructors and to register online. As a “thank you” to our gracious hosts, we offer special discounts for New Orleans Photo Alliance members. Likewise, professional photographers, educators, students and military photographers qualify for discounts. Email our offices for more details today.
Our Five Year Anniversary Trip Update
Due to recent world events, we are being extra careful with the itinerary for the Five Year Anniversary Trip. These changes have put our announcement a little behind schedule. We consider safety to be our primary goal on any educational experience and we take our jobs very seriously as your travel hosts. We will be announcing the final location and tuition costs as soon as possible. We are excited to tell you the trip will most likely be between August and October 2013 and island breezes will be blowing over our nightly edits!
