A professional member of Women in Photography International since 2001, I have enthusiastically participated in several WIPI exhibitions and opportunities. In April 2002, I was given a PRO gallery presentation including 12 images on the WIPI website. This not only increased exposure of my work but resulted in a full-length interview in an online educational publication, www.artschools.com. In 2003, Women in Photography International was responsible for my work's inclusion in TheScreamOnline Art and Photography Auction to support the ALS Therapy Development Foundation. My work has been represented at the WIPI booth at Photo LA in both 2003 and 2004. I am very grateful to WIPI for the opportunities it has given me. It is a terrific organization.

i lost count when i first became a WIPI member but it was in the earlier day when Jean Ferro was taking direct e mails. Because of my limited computer skills Jean would help me connect to WIPI activities. I always appreciated her kindness and patience and still do. I loved connecting with the photojournalist during the first days of the Iraq invasion and wonder if we could have an update on her. I need to use the online resource center more and appreciate WIPI for being there.

my best

The Site is a testimony of female creativity, and selects a group of international photographers. The imagines in the web site are of quality, and represent a historical documentation of contemporary life.

After being chosen for the kitsch & klick: art of the toy camera show, produced by WIPI, I saw the many opportunities and benefits of being a WIPI member. I joined first at the General level and soon upgraded to Pro when I realized how valuable the association with WIPI was to my marketing/and business plan.

WIPI's top quality, award-winning website is seen by so many photo professionals that I frequently see referrals from WIPI to my own site. WIPI programs and events have given me several Google references, allowed me to meet other professionals with information to share, and associated my trademark with my name.

I'm proud of the WIPI exhibition references I have added to my resume. The printed materials produced by Jean Ferro and WIPI have been a great asset to my marketing plan. The constantly updated website information offers me a compact and quickly accessible guide to important photo events and opportunities. WIPI is an invaluable business asset.

WIPI is a phenomenal resource for female photographers worldwide! As a Professional member since 2002, my benefits have been immeasurable! The positive support and encouragement from Jean Ferro has upgraded my presence in the photographic world. WIPI provides a base point for me as a photographer, where I can access resources, post messages, participate in competitions and find support when needed.

WIPI is an organization with authority where I can send clients to view my on-line portfolio in the Archives. To have a gallery on the WIPI website has been a godsend as my personal website has been under construction.

Using the Members Message Board and the Exhibition Posting to announce my solo exhibitions and awards provides a funneling place for up to the minute happenings in my career. Utilizing the Message board also allows me to keep a breast of the careers of fellow photographers.

Thanks to WIPI's promotion and special rate, I entered the IPA competition for 2003 with a series of 14 photos with captions under the category of (non-professional) Historical Architecture - and I was awarded an Honorable Mention!

Women in Photography International has not only provided me with professional support, a worldwide network of photographers and photography organizations- but it's laid the foundation for friendships that have gone beyond anything I ever expected when I signed on as WIPI Director in 1987!

Over the past 17 years, my active involvement with Women in Photography has given me the unique opportunity to share my work and my vision for women working in the photographic arts. Whether lecturing about the nature of women's work at The Creative Center for Photography, in Tucson, AZ - or participating in the lecture program "The Women Behind the Images" at The Royal Photographic Society in Bath, UK - being a part of this wonderful organization has given my life an added dimension.

I would encourage any woman, who is passionate about her work in the field of photography, to become a part of Women in Photography International - where inspiration and collaboration enhance not only a career, but a life!

I am an Italian professional photographer; I am working in Italy and Europe since 1976.

Since I knew WIPI International (in 2000) I really got a lot of opportunities to make me known abroad: In fact I partecipated in "Tea time International" exhibition in Los Angeles; I have a gallery listed too in their website ( Archive 5 January / March 2001) and WIPI INTERNATIONAL promoted and listed in the "Reference Library" my project "WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS' NET", A CENSUS ABOUT WOMEN PHOTOGRAPHERS CURRENTLY ACTIVE IN ITALY, EUROPE AND THE MEDITERRANEAN REGION, year 2000.

Of course there is a link with my web site! Beside that, Peter Palmquist (1936-2003) choose some of my pictures for the women photographers collection in Yale University. Especially since I live in Europe, this has been a great USA connection. Really, there is nothing like this website for women photographers. It is a good way to find the very best resources, a way to share news and informations with colleagues, a way to see what has come before us and what lies ahead. Join!

WIPI has been an energetic force combined with the camaraderie of dedicated artists. Having the opportunity to show work at Photo LA 2002, 2003 and 2004 with talented women in my own field has given me a sense of community and an organization I can feel proud to identify with.

The WIPI website has been a great addition to my exposure on the Web, thanks to Jean Ferro and all her hard work. I am looking forward to future WIPI sponsored events. Freyda Miller Member since 2000

I wanted to thank WIPI: a very high percentage of hits on my website have been coming through the link from the WIPI site. I am in the process of redesigning my site completely, and have placed the WIPI link on the new site. Thank you for your assistance and all the wonderful work you do
