​​​​September 2018 Monthly Program:  A Tribute to our Senior Generation


Steve Bedell has been a professional photographer for over 35 years. He has done weddings, portrait and commercial work but now restricts his business to portraits only.  Steve holds the Master of Photography and Photographic Craftsman degrees from the Professional Photographers of America and is a PPA Approved Print Juror. He has been named the New Hampshire Photographer of the Year a record 8 times and in 2011 was awarded the New England Photographer of the Year title. His specialty is natural light portraiture.  He has written hundreds of articles for photo publications, taught classes and workshops nationwide and produced several lighting DVDs.  His private newsletter, EPhoto, reaches over 2000 photographers. Steve is also a regular contributor to Shutterbug magazine.


Join Steve on a journey of personal introspection and a project that created both powerful images and made a lasting impact on the lives of many. This program was born because of one single ‘Eureka’ moment that turned into a quest to create portraits of senior citizens at St Anns Home in Dover, NH.  It resulted in a wonderful outpouring of thanks, coverage by newspapers and TV stations, an exhibit for the home and much more.  


This program has been featured in The Rangefinder magazine and as a platform program at WPPI in Las Vegas.  

Programs are conducted by various photographers from all over the United States and local. BPPA schedules these key speakers to come to our monthly meetings to educate and share with you tips and knowledge of your trade. We strive to schedule different educators in all fields of photography to provide a well rounded educational year.  In addition to monthly programs, two times each year we have Salon Competition.
