One of TPPA’s most beloved traditions is back!

June 24 & 25, 2023

The Inn of the Hills in Kerrville, Texas !

Enjoy the relaxing social and networking experience along with the outstanding education you have come to expect from TPPA.

What is Summerfest?

Summerfest is a premier educational event for photographers who want to elevate their craft while enjoying a laid-back social setting for families.

The new Summerfest brings back the social and networking experience we all enjoyed with the former Summerfest while providing the outstanding education you have come to expect from TPPA.

Two Outstanding Programs

Julie Savage sponsored by Bay Photo.

Our featured speaker is Julie Savage from Madison, Alabama. Her program is brought to you by Bay Photo. We are thrilled to have her presenting Creating Personal Art on Saturday. Julie will guide you through the process of finding inspiration for your photography and art in your own life and surroundings.

On Sunday, Tim Babiak will be sharing advanced concepts to apply to your photography business to elevate your success and long-term performance in his program, Competitive Business Strategies.

Early Registration Bonus:

Photographing Night Skies with Alison Carlino

Please Note:  This workshop has now sold out! Register today to get on the waiting list for this exciting, hands-on outing with Alison Carlino to photograph night skies in the Hill Country.

  • Participants will meet Alison on Saturday night for orientation and then head out to photograph into the early morning hours.

Bring your family with you!

If you are new to TPPA, Summerfest is a family-friendly* weekend where photographers get inspired with outstanding programs while the family enjoys time in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. 

There is so much to see and do in Kerrville including river rafting, wine tasting, the James Avery Foundry, Enchanted Rock, horseback riding, golf and the Kerrville-Schreiner Park. There is even a vintage Gibson’s store that is a must see!  Perhaps the most popular option is to simply hang out at the beautiful pool at the Inn of the Hills. 

*While this is a family-friendly event, this scaled-back version of Summerfest will not offer the Kids Kamp as we did in years past.
