        Carrie Wildes owns Carrie Wildes Photography (based in Tampa, Florida) and operates out of a custom home studio and second location in a shared commercial space. Their team includes six photographers, a studio manager, and graphic designer. You can find Carrie dodging traffic, leaning off ledges, and sometimes even braving the snow to get the money shot.  But this all didn’t start until she realized the gift she had while on a mission trip to the Philippines…where she fell in love with photography.  In 2007, she and her husband, David, left the frozen tundra of Chicago to start a new and warmer life in Tampa, Florida.  Carrie then decided to get off the corporate ladder and build one her own. She graduated from Purdue University with a bachelor’s degree in Industrial Engineering, is a scuba diver, doesn’t eat beef, and is a social media diva.

    • What should I do to prepare for the class?
      The Business Basics Questionnaire (located under the Course Materials tab on this page) allows our instructors to learn more about your business prior to your attendance in the class. Please review, complete and email the questionnaire to PPA at sms@ppa.com. 

      What should I bring with me to the class?
      Attendees will receive a printed and bound copy of the full presentation with room for taking notes. Additional notepads/pens are suggested but not required. In order to respect our instructors, we request that you do not use your laptop for note-taking.

      What are the class hours?
      The class runs from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. both days. Look for a detailed class schedule via email the week prior to the class.

      This class is advertised as a wedding workshop. I don't shoot weddings. Can I still attend?
      You are welcome to attend the workshop, but it would be in your best interest to choose a different class. Some of the principles taught during the workshop can be applied to your business, but most segments (pricing and marketing, for example) are geared solely toward wedding photographers.

      Do I need to be a PPA member to attend?
      PPA membership is required for all primary workshop registrants. Members may bring a non-member spouse or studio colleague. Need to join PPA 

      Will I receive merits for attending?
