We are going to capture the Rock ‘n Roll experience with a live band.

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.

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 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.
