PCPPA is excited to present and host Michele Render of Render Photography for a special Photographers Fundamentals Workshop this March!

Michele Render - Renders Photography


My photography career began in high school, when I worked as a senior representative for a local studio.  Within 2 years, I started my own photography business (in the days of film). That was 20 years ago and I started using Photoshop right away.  It’s a tool that I use in my everyday editing and design of promotional material.  I also currently work part time at a local high school where I assist with many classes, one of which is a graphic arts. So many year later, I still love photography and Photoshop! I have earned many print competition awards for my images through the Pierce County Professional Photographers Association. Please join me for this special evening and leave with skills that you can use to enhance your images and create your own actions!
