Michael & Anna Costa at the LA PUG.

We had a GREAT Pictage User Group this month in LA. Thank you to Rudy Arpia for being our Studio Spotlight. I was so impressed by the Spanish Wedding Photography Forum he created, Foro De Fotografia.

Our speakers, Michael & Anna Costa gave a lot of great information! Thanks for coming down from Santa Barbara to speak to our group, guys.

Anna was getting ready to sing for the American Idol auditions, so we asked her to sing for us, and she did!! She has such an amazing voice. Best of luck, Anna!

Long Beach PUG & Michael Costa

First off....we are no longer a Puppy PUG!!! We are a full fledged PUG!! I am VERY happy about that!

The Long Beach PUG wants to thank Michael Costa for stopping by and sharing his work with us! We had an awesome time!

Here are a few photos that Leo Flores, Photographer and Pictage Employee took for us! Thanks Leo!!

Where do I begin...we have so much going on here!!!

I'm not going to re-post all details to all happenings that are already at our Pictage Forum Pittsburgh PUG page link and at our PGH_PUG Google Group - check the links out for all the detailed info on what we've got going on in Pittsburgh... but here's a snapshot of our progress and events to come:

We've created our Studio Spotlight list for the remainder of 2008 and into the Spring of 2009 - which is so cool for everyone involved! And I've posted the Studio Spotlight Guidelines on our Google Group and at the Pictage Pug Page for all members to have easy access on how to prepare for their "15 minutes of fame."

We have a follow-up event tonight at from our June PUG and 2nd Annual Cookout where Justin & Mary Marantz came into town to speak with us!

August brings us Justin Kifer and Jared Bauman with their BookIt / ShootIt Workshops on August 13 and 14 respectively!

And then in September - I know it's a little way off, but I am so excited to have them with us - Michael and Anna Costa will be here with us in Pittsburgh speaking too!

Hey DJ! How can we get you to come back again? We miss you...!

I have a feeling this summer is going to fly by as we are rockin' it out in PGH!

BIG love, Joanne Bartone, Photographer
