JPPG has a long history. It goes back to the mid-1900s when it was known as the Professional Photographers Society of North Florida, or PPSNF. The name JPPG was recently only adopted within the last 10 years.
From time to time, we come across something that rewinds the hands of time in all of the history that we keep in many binders — newsletters, meeting minutes, marketing pieces, etc — and we get a glimpse of what the photography world and the Guild was like. This piece, however, was shared with us from one of our Members, Harry Forsythe.
We’ll take you back through the JPPG Archives to 40 years ago to June 1978.
Below are scans from a PPSNF Newsletter from June 1978. Some of our Members were Members back then, some were in their early childhood years, and some of our Members weren’t even born yet.
There’s a great article on Competition, too, that’s definitely worth the read. Enjoy this time machine travel back to 1978.

JPPG (Jacksonville Professional Photographers Guild) invites you to an evening with the New Full-Frame Canon EOS R Mirrorless Camera and its surrounding system.
Tuesday, September 18th. No Charge!
We have arranged for Chuckie Luzier, Canon’s Southeast Pro-Market Rep, to ship in the new Canon EOS R camera! This is a perfect opportunity for photographers to have a hands-on experience with the new system.
- A studio lighting set up will be in place for our use.
- Bring your own SD card and you can leave with files that you actually photographed with the new camera.
- Feel free to bring your own favorite lens or two to use on the new camera.
- Participate in discussion of the new system… what you like about it and even what you might want to see in the future of the system and why.
Tuesday, September 18th.
Come as early as 6:30 PM, but we will start promptly at 7 PM.
NOTE: This is not our monthly meeting. It is a bonus evening due to the new camera!
Our regular meeting this month
is Tuesday, the 25th at the Ramada!
3758 Beauclerc Rd
Jacksonville FL 32257
