PHOTO & VIDEO CONGRESS


MESSAGE FROM THE WPPP PRESIDENT








Buying  a camera and taking a few shots do not instantly make you a true and a professional photographer.

A lot resort to photography when finding employment is hard or losing a job here locally or abroad or thinking that money in photography comes easy. 

In fact, Photography as a profession has a discipline of its own. It is an art and is more than theories and speculations, it is a skill that has to be practiced and continuously perfected upon. 

That is why there is a Photo and Video Congress  . . .  to help shape up those who want to become real professionals in wedding and portrait photography. 

We would like to invite everyone to join us in honing our expertise together and share another year of fun and grace-filled fellowship with each other. 

See you at The WPPP Photo & Video Congress 2017. 

Cheers to all!

ROBERT LESTER ALISCAD
President, WPPP
