Our 23rd Annual Something Personal Exhibition

The Key to Success is Your Personal Photographic Style

APA San Francisco's Something Personal Exhibition is well established as the most popular and prestigious Northern California photo community annual event.

Every recent year, between 600 and 1000 people have attended the in-person Something Personal Exhibition Holiday Party.

We expect many hundreds of people to participate in our online version, this year. All of the top Creatives in our region will receive special invitations.

For more than two decades, these yearly exhibitions have offered professional photographers an opportunity to proudly display their finest examples of their own personal photographic style, without anyone else's art direction. 

Commercial photographers, like all fine artists, expend considerable time, resources, and effort developing unique, contemporary personal work, not only to expand our own creativity, but also to add to our palette of techniques.

This invigorating, rejuvinating practice accelerates our artistic growth, and it insures that our commercial work continues to be impressive, truly powerful, directly connecting ... and inspiring.

We know that our clients understand and appreciate that a refined artistic style is a crucial element in the overall success of every campaign. 

Top creatives volunteer to judge these annual exhibitions for us, and in doing so, each time, they continually guarantee that we present only high-caliber, new imagery.

Exhibitions of brilliant images attract people who enjoy seeing strong images, before they become public. 

Be a part of this annual unveiling experience -- one of profound professional, creative expression, and join us as we present our tradition of ... Something Personal.

Info about the Dec 9 online celebration will be announced here soon
