->> Guys,
I am very excited to announce the Wisconsin News Photographers Association annual convention is set to go!

Erin Trieb of VII Photo Agency, Damian Strohmeyer of Sports Illustrated, and Eric Seals of the Detroit Free Press will headline WNPA’s 2012 Convention at Hotel Metro in Milwaukee on May 12, 2012. Both Canon and Nikon will be on hand with their goods to show off too you as well.

This is a must see event for anyone in the Midwest. I hope to see folks from Michigan, Illinois, Minnesota, Iowa, Indiana and Wisconsin. Heck jump on a plane and visit us from anywhere!

We are returning to the Hotel Metro (one of my favorite hotels of all time) and you can get all of the specifics here...

It's gonna be a blast and we hope to see ya in May!

Adios...Dan.

If you get a chance, pass along our convention information to any fellow journalism/photojournalism students and professors that you know. Heck, anyone who enjoys photography too. We're gonna have door prizes, so they may even win something cool! Seeya in May...Dan.

I could have sworn John Maniaci talked about students needing a ride. You might want to contact Michael P. King at the Wisconsin State Journal. I thought he and John were talking about that. I could be wrong, but for some reason that stands out...Dan.

Also, Badger Bus drops off at the Milwaukee Intermodal Station (Amtrak) and the Milwaukee Bus Depot – they are both less than a mile walk to Hotel Metro and the Journal Sentinel building. Then you don't even have to worry about parking downtown which can add up over a couple days.

You, Dan, Mark and others at WNPA ran a great contest this past weekend.

I left there with a good adrenaline rush from seeing and judging some really nice pictures from talented photographers and hearing from the other speakers.

Thanks again! :-)
