    Yes, I said the "T" word.  We all have to deal with taxes and photographers are no different, especially if you run your own business.  This year, starting from when this website went live, we can provide a list of payments that you have made throughout the year to you, however, we will only be doing it on a request basis.

    If you would like to have a listing of the charges/payments/meetings/classes that you have made a financial transaction for, please email me with your request.  You can email contact@ppagkc.org and I will put you on my list.  After the 1st of the year, I will begin producing reports and sending them to you. 

    If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to ask!

    As you have probably noticed, the PPAGKC website has undergone a transformation.  Well, that transformation is not quite complete and there are a few things that will be added to this website in the near future!  If you are a member or a Friend of PPAGKC, you can log in with your email address and password.  If you don't know your password, click on the "Forgot Password" option and a link will be sent to you to reset it.  If all else fails, drop an email to me at "contact@ppagkc.org" and I'll take care of it as soon as I can.

    Once you log in, click on your profile and please make sure all your information is correctly listed.  There ARE some duplicate fields there, but please indulge me and fill them out.  I will be fixing the database very soon, probably in the next day or two.

    There are a couple very nice features that will be coming up such as being able to pay your membership fees online AND allowing them to be recurring so you don't have to worry about paying your membership fees!  Events and meetings can also be paid for online as well.  Members will also have their own web pages available to them as well as a Member's-Only Forum and other Member-specific benefits!

    NOTE:  Members, you will HAVE to log in to the website in order to get member pricing on events, meetings and classes.  Otherwise, the public price will be your only option.

    However, until all that happens, if you run into problems, or have questions, or just can't navigate the site, please let me know by clicking on my name below and sending me an email and I'll try and help you with it!  Thank you for visiting!!

    Do you think of yourself as a photographer or as a digital editor? 

    In general, do you spend more time with your camera or with your editing software? 

    When you think of editing a photo, do you set any limits for yourself? Are you comfortable changing the content of your photo or do you limit your changes to style?

    • Style changes include adjusting hue, tone, or temperature; cropping; and background blurring.
    • Content changes involve adding something to the photo that was not there in the original image. 

    From your perspective, how much editing is too much? When does changing the content of the photo make it misleading or false? Does your answer depend on the purpose of the photo? 

    If your intent is to capture a moment in time, are you more inclined to limit edits to style changes? If your intent is to create a work of art, do you give yourself the freedom to make content changes? 

    We must decide for ourselves how much editing is too much.
