    Kimberly Smith

    We will learn how to find great locations for session anywhere.  We will talk about how to find inspiration for original works of art.  Whether it is for competition or personal... From the beginning processes to the very end with presentation and personal touches.  Learn to see things from a different perspective.

    I have always loved art!  But my passion for photography began when I started having my babies and wanted to document everything by scrapbooking.  So I bought a "better" camera and I was hooked.  I started going to conventions, classes and competitions... I joined numerous photography associations and started my business.  In January of 2008, I received my Master of Photography degree from Professional Photographers of America.  I completely believe in Life-long learning.  I am always striving to learn - there's always another class to take!

    CPP Lighthouse

    When you earn your certification you show your potential clients that they are hiring a true professional.  You gain an advertising edge by showing your clients that they can trust your skills and follow through on your commitments.  CPP is an easy way to help consumers understand and appreciate your level of experience and to justify your pricing.

    Are you ready to begin your journey to certification?

    If so, join the Dallas PPA CPP Lighthouse. This is a series of study sessions that will help guide you through the certification process. In each session we focus on one section of the exam and review the material that you must know. 

    There is no prerequisite to join the group. Only your commitment to the time necessary to study the material and your determination to follow through.  We only want people who are dedicated to earning their CPP. If you bring that dedication to the group, then we’ll do whatever we can to help guide you to your certification.

    All participants must be ready to declare their candidacy. To understand more about this process, visit the PPA website. (www.ppa.com/cpp/)

    Sandra Pearce
    The Art of Painting with Photoshop

    Sandra Pearce, who in just five years earned degrees as Craftsman, Master Artist and Master of Photography, is prepared to teach you how to Paint in Photoshop.   She has won numerous awards over the years in state, national and international levels. She received her Image Excellence in 2014.

    Her many years teaching both traditional art and digital art will help you stretch your creative eye to make exciting digital paintings come to life as you learn to take full advantage of all Photoshop has to offer.  Things envisioned in the mind become living art when you learn to take advantage of the vast potential in Photoshop.  A collection of photos on a single topic can become a way to tell a story, see the many sides of a single individual at one glance, or take the mundane and turn it into a gallery piece.

    Sandra Pearce 2 Day Workshop
    Painting with Photoshop

    Come to the class that will “Demystify Painting with Photoshop” and open your mind to a new concept for your business.

    Her many years teaching both traditional art and digital art will help you stretch your creative eye to make exciting digital paintings come to life as you learn to take full advantage of all Photoshop has to offer.  Things envisioned in the mind become living art when you learn to take advantage of the vast potential in Photoshop.   You will learn color, balance, lighting and creativity.  It is not necessary to buy any other program when you already have  the program to paint like the pros. You will incorporate the techniques of painting into beautiful art pieces. She will demonstrate the technique she uses to paint and blend backgrounds for portraits using the mixer brushes. You will learn to use all the brushes Sandra uses. Not only can you paint, but her technique can make retouching more realistic and faster.  She will take an image and teach beginning to end how to make an heirloom art piece. People think Painter is the only alternative for painting.  Sandra would like to make them aware they already have the program (Photoshop) and do not have to spend extra money. The learning curve is less, since you are already comfortable with Photoshop.




    Seat not guaranteed until paid in full. 
    No refunds within 14 days of class.
