    PPOC is proud to bring to our members the Legendary Portrait Photographer: George DeLoache.  Come to our April general meeting to hear George speak about his years of creating portraits and use of light.


    “Creating of portraits is my passion. I dream of the images that could be and I meditate on those that will soon become. It began when I was a boy and a lifetime later the passion is even greater. God, I do so love being a photographer

    From the very first moment of seeing my images develop in a darkroom while working on my Boy Scout merit badge, I was hooked. I fell in love with photography and dreamed of the images that I would someday create

    Years have passed since the days of my youthful exuberance over the photographic image, years in which the passion has only intensified. As years go by, I find myself more and more enthralled with portrait photography; portraiture not purely as a reflection of reality but portraiture as an art form.” –George DeLoache
