What's NEWS!

300th Wedding CoupleOur 300th wedding was photographed on Saturday night, December 11, 1999. Chris and Marianne, pictured here in their engagement portrait, were married in a ceremony at the City Center in Salisbury, MD. While they're sunning themselves in beautiful Hawaii we're busy at work preparing the film for processing, printing, and insertion in their wedding album.

The most important thing of note in all of these weddings is this one simple truth. They're all different! If you've yet to be married please make sure you select a professional photographer who is capable of capturing YOUR special day in a professional and unobtrusive fashion; and, not one who is going to make your album a carbon copy of every album he/she has done before.

A digital revolution is sweeping our entire civilization. At Michael Minner PHOTOGRAPHY we're abreast of the latest technology, offering images made with a digital camera to clients that require them for their websites or in house publications. Recently some digital glamour portraits were made for a modeling agency. Take a look at some of the samples that follow.

Congratulations to Minner Photo, of the West Salisbury Little League, on the completion of their undefeated 22-0 season which culminated in the winning of the Salisbury City Championship for 1998!

On April 27, 1998, more than 150 studios around the United States and Canada will sponsor one-day information-rich programs on a variety of photographic and business management topics. Michael Minner, Master Photographer of Michael Minner Photography in Salisbury, plans to participate locally in PPA/Winona Continuing Education System's Super Monday.

Michael Minner will teach his fellow image-makers specifics regarding the implementation of dynamic compositional design elements in the successful preparation of images for both clients and competition. This six-hour program, "Compose, Compete, and Complain!", will be held in Salisbury, MD at Minner's studio located at 939 Mount Hermon Road. The registration fee is $99. PPA members receive one educational merit towards one of PPA's degrees in photography.

A member of PPA since 1981, Michael Minner is donating his services for the fund raiser. PPA LogoProceeds from the event will be used to support educational programs for members of Professional Photographers of America, Inc. and others in the photographic profession. Minner, who holds degrees in mathematics and education as well as the coveted Master of Photography degree, is a nationally recognized authority on composition theory. His program will demonstrate how viewing the world in which we live, in general, and viewing our subject, in particular, with a critical eye can lead to the creation of more compositionally sound images for clients. "The Rule of Thirds is a universally accepted code for artists, but few professionals have a sound basis for its understanding," says Minner. "The rule itself is actually inherent in nature. The same beauty that humans find in their universe can be applied to his/her creative endeavors."

Winona provides an international center for continuing education to professional imagemakers to improve their skills, overall knowledge and motivation. Experienced "hands-on" courses covering specialized photographic subjects and techniques are offered to professionals on an ongoing basis.

PPA, the world's oldest and largest association for professional photographers, has helped imagemakers worldwide grow professionally through its educational services since 1922.

January is normally a pretty slow time in the portrait business. Cold dark days and holiday bills to pay generally don't put folks in the proper frame of mind to have portraits made. Master photographer, Michael Minner, is busy professionally however. Michael MinnerOn January 11, 1998 he served as a print judge at the annual convention of the Professional Photographers of Delaware, and later that week travelled to the Pacific Northwest to serve as a consultant at a prominent downtown Seattle, WA studio. During his week there Minner provided his expertise in the areas of customer consultation, portrait preparation, sales with slide previews, the usage of computers in the studio, and digital imaging.

A professional portrait does just that; taking an indelible moment from our lives and saving it forever! We believe that no gift is more unique, special , or appreciated.
