Every now and then, I love to get out and do some networking, visiting, listening, looking and learning from and with other San Antonio wedding photographers—as was the case last night. I ventured out to the Dominion Country Club for a Meet Up with the Photo SA group (hosted by Jim Landers) to listen to a master photographer speak. The guest speaker was Jim Binegar, a San Antonio wedding photographer, who’s been photographing wedding for over 40 years.
Jim admitted he was only paid $50 for his first weddings working under the direction of a Maryland studio and having to travel a 100-mile round trip in a lot of cases. Jim became a master photographer by having, if I recall correctly, eight of his images make it to general collection and four of them advancing to the loan collection, ultimately accumulating 25 merits. The PPA degrees are a way to gauge an photographer’s expertise. In essence, the degree indicates the photographer has mastered some of the industry’s highest standards for professional photographers.

I enjoyed the night out and will make plans to attend the next meeting with Kate Roy of Snap Chic Photography from Boerne. Kate specializes in fine art photography and is going to show a video compilation of her latest piece and also Photoshop® it during the live presentation. I always like to see other artists and San Antonio wedding photographers work their magic… whether in Photoshop, a live shoot or during a public speaking event.
Until next time, be positive, happy, and healthy, and don’t forget to be photographed.
