Minnesota Photographers at 2008 PPA Tampa Florida
I had the good fortune to be able to attend PPA's national convention in Tampa Florida. On the last night several of the Minnesotans gathered for a group photograph at Tampa's aquarium. I am in the back with the white shirt. I am standing next to Amy Zellmer this years TCPPA president. The photographers that I interned with Mark and Krish Keifer are in the front row all the way to the left. Next to Krish is David Gruppa. David challenged the TCPPA group to raise 750 dollars for Operation Smile and he would shave his head. 750 dollars pays for 3 reconstructive surgeries for cleft lips and cleft pallets. David exceeded is goal raising 4800 dollars and shaved his head at the TCPPA yearly Christmas/Awards banquet. Way to go Dave.!! Click here to learn more about Operation Smile .
