Jason Groupp

Director of WPPI
646-668-3722

Jason Groupp is the director of WPPI. Like Woody Allen, Jason adores New York City, far beyond any healthy proportion. “This is a town that is based in black and white, where colors explode like matches and pulses to the rhythms of Gershwin,” Jason says. “I thrive on the hustle and bustle of the crowds and traffic.” Jason first fell in love in with The City while attending The Fashion Institute of Technology, then during the past 12 years in his West Chelsea photography studio, and now in the downtown offices of Emerald Expo, where he says that each day is truly an adventure.

Theresa Raffetto

Conference Manager

Theresa Raffetto, award winning photographer, has worked on food and product assignments of all scope and size in both the advertising and editorial worlds. She has produced images that The Associated Press calls, “classic in style and light and airy in feel.”  Her vision and leadership producing these shoots, along with six years as National President of American Photographic Artists has led to new adventures with the Photo+ Group as Conference Manager. She is excited to play an integral part in helping to shape both PhotoPlus and WPPI to be the best learning experience out there!

Lynne Schreur

Photo+ Membership Manager
646-668-3719

Lynne is joining the world of lighting and lens caps from the world of saddles and stem caps, as she recently worked as the Marketing Manager of Interbike, another Emerald Expositions-owned tradeshow. Prior to that, Lynne has held positions at Field Station: Dinosaurs, Cirque du Soleil, Disney Theatrical Productions and Kimmel Center, Inc. Outside of work she loves to bake, play the clarinet and hand bells, and is an active member of Sigma Alpha Iota, the international music fraternity. When it comes to photography, she is a self-described “amateur photographer who takes a nice picture every once in a while but has a lot of fun trying.” Lynne is excited to work with the members of Photo+ to ensure that they are getting the most out of their experience using our products and attending our shows.
