    A Little bit about our Speaker:

    A husband, a father to three amazing girls, a photographer, a social media fanatic, and the owner of SYNC, Darty Hines (PPA Craftsman) keeps very busy. Even with this busy schedule, he is constantly striving to find new and innovative ways for small business owners to succeed. He has been a professional photographer for over 20 years and has worked and consulted with many prestigious photography studios across the Nation. Darty and his wife Michele are also co-owners of the educational conference SYNC. They met during college at Ohio Institute of Photography in Dayton, OH where the chemistry was not just in the darkroom. They married a few years after college graduation, had 3 beautiful daughters and currently reside in Millersburg, Pennsylvania.

    Darty’s ‘street smart’ marketing and social media knowledge continues to help photographers and small business owners across the country. His straightforward no-nonsense approach to teaching will help you stand out in an overcrowded market and will empower you to be a better photographer, marketer and business person.
