Unlike many large-scale photography conferences, MOPPA is a NFP 501(c)6. So what does this mean to you? This conference is NOT a revenue stream; yet we still provide quality education from some of the industry's most respected and influential leaders. We are a community, a photography family, helping & learning, sharing & caring to better the industry, the art-form, and business practices as a whole.

    We can't just stop at one event so we decided to offer small gatherings throughout the year, we like to call Studio Experiences. This is a more intimate set up and are one of the amazing benefits* of membership! If you're not a member, no worries - $69 for non-members. (or you just become a member).

    This Experience will be located in St. Charles, Missouri. We have the wonderful treat of hearing from three amazing artists. The experience will start at 10 am with a chance to learn from the wonderful Carl Neitzert from Creative Photo. He'll cover the importance of "Diversifying to Thrive". He will explain his process and techniques to continue to bring in income even during the typical "slow" months.  We will break for lunch at Noon to enjoy some of the great food located in the St. Charles area.  We will then return at 1:00 p.m. with a dual lecture and demo from Karen Thaemert, from K Thaemert Photography. She'll be talking on."Family Heritage Sessions." Her talk with flow right into Ray Kersting and his instruction on "Lighting on Location - Unplugging the Cord" demo. He'll cover how to use the natural conditions around us to make the most out of our images  We will wrap up between 5:00 and 5:30 allowing those that may have a drive home plenty of time to return and those close by a chance to network and chat. We hope that you are able to join us for this unique and fun event. The space is limited to the first 25 people so be sure to snag your spot before it's too late.

    ("*" = members pay $50 to reserve their spot but are reimbursed at check-in.)
