Tomorrow, I am leaving for Las Vegas for WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International), an annual convention and trade show for professional photographers. It is a huge event with about 15,000 photographers and I am so excited to going!
Last year was my first time attending and I came home feeling incredibly inspired with so many new ideas that I couldn't wait to try out at my upcoming photo shoots. I expect this year to be even better, and I am sure I will have lots of photos and stories to share when I get back!
I'm ready for a busy few days filled with learning, checking out all the latest products and talking photography with photographers from all over. It's fun, exhausting and totally worth it! There are platform classes everyday on all things photography such as lighting, posing, marketing, etc. The trade show is huge (and a little overwhelming at first)- I love wandering around and checking out all of the latest products. Getting to look at and feel the different album options in person is the best way for me to choose the very best products for my clients.
