WPPI 2009

  • WPPI 2009

As most of you know, I spent the last 4 days across  the country in LAS VEGAS for the WPPI conference! WPPI stands for Wedding and Portrait Photographers International. There were over 10,000 photographers from around the world that came together to learn new techniques, new business strategies and to meet other photographers. I’ll admit that at first glance, it was a bit overwhelming. I traveled along side my good friend Jessie Smith. After the first day of sessions we both flopped down on the hotel bed, completely and totally bombarded with all the new info we had received!

And 10,000 Photographers!

  • A City of Lights!

I still can’t believe I’m in Vegas! All I have to do to be reminded is look out the window and see the glow of the city lights that literally illuminate the ENTIRE city! It’s been a great trip so far. Jessie and I have learned so much… almost too much! We have sat through sessions and listened to some of the world’s top photographers share their tips and tricks! It’s incredible!  I think I have enough brochures and pamphlets to keep me busy reading for a year! The trade show is compiled of two gigantic convention halls filled with incredible vendors. Canon is EVERYWHERE and sponsoring everything! (totally dominating Nikon:).

Hello Vegas!

  • Hello Vegas!

That’s right! VEGAS! I’m staring at the MGM Grand sign as we speak…. or type….. I’m running low on sleep so this is going to be short and sweet! Basically we left the house at 4:40 AM and have been going ever since! WHAT A DAY! For those of you who don’t know, Jessica Smith and I are attending the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photography International) conference this week and let me tell you, IT’S INTENSE!… and a tad overwhelming at times but it got ALOT better when we randomly ran into J* in the lobby!! Yes, the Jasmine Star and I’ll admit I’m a little embarrassed to admit that I kind of squealed/yelled/freaked out for a split second…….
