  • Online Zoom Meeting

Join us for January's General Meeting, on Wednesday, the 6th,, 7-9 PM, via Zoom. Our speaker will be Kelly Schneider, on "Dodging & Burning in Portraits".

PPA Photographic Craftsmen, Certified Professional Photographer, Kelly was born and raised in Coronado, California, and eventually moved to Oregon, where he lived until he joined the US Navy in 1980. During his 29-year Navy career, Kelly traveled to 137 countries.  While doing so, he developed a passion for “capturing” the world around him through photography.  

In 2010, Kelly expanded into professional photography, photographing weddings and growing and refining his skills in creating “salient” portraits.  While starting his family photography business, Kelly was also busy working for Department of Defense as manpower and training lead for various programs, including the Nuclear Carrier CVN78 FORD Class.  Over time, he became passionate about teaching others and earned a Master’s Training Specialist  as well as a master’s degree in Human System Integration from the Navy Post Graduate School in Monterey, California.  He strongly believes in constant learning and attends two to three workshops/events each year.  

Kelly is currently writing his first book on photography, “The Salient Portrait—The Science Behind It and How to Achieve It.” The information he shares in the book is the core of all the workshops and training events he offers. He was named Portrait Photographer of the Year in 2017 by Maryland Professional Photographers Association and again in 2018 in the state of Maryland.  He is also a recipient of the 2018 FujiFilm Masterpiece Award and FujiFim Wedding.

A Zoom link will be emailed to all on our mailing list a few days before the event.  Email cmpguild@gmail.com, if you'd like to be sent a Guest Pass link!
