    2015 Little Red Schoolhouse…

    .....of ROCK!!


    Join the excitement as the Dallas PPA presents the 2015 Little Red Schoolhouse… of ROCK!

    Yes, just go and register right now - you won’t want to miss it.  You’ll be talking about this one for years!

    If you shoot portraits, headshots, products or events - or if you want to learn to be more creative - or just like music and having fun, this event is for you.  We are going to capture the Rock ‘n Roll experience with a live band.  Shoot and create album cover art, complete with shots of the band members and creative artwork to develop an eye-grabbing CD-selling image. 

    You’ll have sessions to shoot musical instruments and props and end up shooting a live concert.  What can be more fun?

    Who Should Attend?

    The event is hosted by the Dallas Professional Photographers Association and is open to both members and non-members. 

     The theme is Rock ‘n Roll but that is only the environment in which we will be learning more about portraits, head shots, product photography and event photography.


     Featured Instructors
    Mike Corrado

    Mike Corrado is Nikon Professional Services manager, product marketing at Nikon, but more important for our purposes, he's a skilled, inventive photographer with a passion for performance photography.  Name a high profile band and Mike has probably photographed them. 

     Joe Glyda

    Joe Glyda has been creating photographic images since he was eight years old. Joe worked for Kraft Foods of Glenview Illinois for 36 years where he served as the Digital Imaging Manager from 1993 until 2008.  Joe introduced digital photography to Kraft in 1993 and since 1999 the Creative Services Photography Studio provides Kraft with complete digital services for all advertising and promotional photography.

    Share the excitement and enthusiasm that Joe brings to photography as a passionate teacher and mentor. 

    Gabriel Alonso

    Offering a vast breadth of experience and photographic skill, Gabriel Alonso is one of today's premier portrait artists. His talent and expertise combined with his immense insight, exceptional artistic composition and heightened sensitivity to the client's desires allow him to capture the essence and timeless expression of beautiful moments in images his clients will cherish for generations.

    Larry Lourcey

    Storytelling has always been the hallmark of Larry Lourcey’s Photography. From the fun personality series to the beautiful painted portrait, his images stand apart.  He’s most recently completed a special show of his images from his Off The Record project where he’s masterfully mimicked famous album covers.

     Since earning his Bachelor of Arts in 1992, continuing education has always been a priority for Larry. Countless art classes and photography workshops have helped to mold his style and technique and now he shares his knowledge and creativity with you at the Little Red Schoolhouse.

    Richard Sturdevant

    Richard Sturdevant is a leading expert in photographic artistry and creative composites. His award winning work, style, and techniques have earned him high praise in the photographic industry. Richard is known for an impressive track record in PPA print competition – receiving 16 prints with a perfect 100 point score in state, regional, and district competitions.

     Host Hotel

    It’s taken an extensive search to find a venue that can contain all the excitement and energy of this year’s Little Red Schoolhouse, but we are proud to announce that under a special arrangement with the Choctaw Nation, Little Red will be hosted at the Choctaw Casino in Durant Oklahoma

    To be able to provide the necessary facilities for this event, the Choctaw Casino has embarked on a multi-million dollar expansion project that will be completed just weeks before our arrival.  The Spa Tower comprises of luxuriously appointed rooms and meeting facilities.

    Dallas PPA has negotiated incredible off-the-hook rates for these rooms beginning at $169. 

     The Concert

    The culmination of the event is a live concert by the band the Highway 31.  And everyone is invited.  In fact, invite friends and family to come up and join in the fun.  It’s our way of saying thank you for sharing your time with us.


    This is a PPA Continuing Education System class.
