"As an introvert, it was a little daunting to attend AIPP events. The warm atmosphere and meeting a couple of new people at each event has since made every AIPP event feel like a family gathering. It is the most incredible community to be a part of and where I've met many of my great friends." - Matt Palmer APP MPhotog
