My good buddy Steve Troup shared this in 2011 on Facebook, and I ran across it yesterday. With the image, he wrote:
Here is a real blast from the past. The PPA Industry Advisory Committee, photographed, I think, in front of Agfa Headquarters in maybe 1997. Good times, good friends.
I'm going with Steve on 1997, and we were definitely at Agfa. Mark Roberts from Art Leather was the chairman of the Industry Advisory Committee. He handed off the gavel to me for the next 4-5 years, and then I passed it on to Steve Troup.
Sadly, there are too many people in this photograph who are no longer with us, as well as a few no longer in the industry. However, the memories looking back on those days in imaging still brings a big smile to my face.
Don't let Throwback Thursday go by without enjoying your own hunt for great memories. Then share them on social media. It's especially effective when the image ties back into reminding clients it's time for a new family portrait!
Happy Throwback Thursday!
