Connect, Collaborate, Create.


I am honored and privileged to lead the association in the coming year - as we embark on a momentous occasion. OPPA's tenth-year journey is engraved by your passion - to a shared commitment to the art of photography.

As we stand at the threshold of this significant milestone, I am grateful for the tireless dedication and collective efforts that have shaped our association into the vibrant community it is today. Our tenth year symbolizes not only a decade of accomplishments but also a testament to the enduring spirit of our members.

In the spirit of this milestone, I am excited to share a new vision for our association for every photographer. This vision builds upon our rich tradition – while embracing the opportunities that lie ahead. Your 2024 board and I will be fostering connection, collaboration, and creation in our art, business, association, and communities- as these are the elements that are the cornerstone of a thriving and dynamic association.

Connection is the heartbeat of our association - the bond that unites us all in our love for photography. Purposeful connections are where we draw inspiration, share experiences, and forge lasting friendships. In the coming year, your 2024 board will aim to enhance these connections, creating a supportive network that empowers each to reach new heights in their photographic journey.

Collaboration is the key to unlocking untapped potential. I ask you to continue your dedication to a future where our members actively collaborate, pooling their diverse talents and perspectives to produce innovative, impactful experiences. As the membership works together, we can amplify the impact of our association for all members, reaching new audiences and contributing to the broader photography community.

Creation is at the core of what we do. The association exists to nurture and celebrate the creative spirit within each of you. In the coming year, we will focus on providing more opportunities for artistic expression, whether through workshops, NWTP, social gatherings, print competition, exhibitions, and innovative collaborative projects,

Let our association be a canvas where your creativity knows no bounds.

While embracing new visions, we also hold dear to our hearts the cherished tradition of print competition, awards, degrees, and scholarships that have defined us.

This tenth year is an occasion to honor the legacy of those who have paved the way for us and to reflect on the values that have guided our association since its inception.

Let us embark on this exciting journey into our tenth year with a sense of pride in our past achievements, a commitment to fostering strong connections, a dedication to collaborative endeavors, and an unwavering passion for our creation of timeless art. Together, we can continue to elevate our association to new heights, leaving an indelible mark on the world of photography.

Thank you for your continued support and dedication. Here's to the next decade of the shared vision of connection, collaboration, and creation.

Warm regards,

Mia Admire-President 2024
