My WPPI experience was an unforgettable one. From the time I woke up until the time I went to bed from Sunday through Thursday, I was submersed in what I love. I attended WPPI Las Vegas this year with my two close friends and fellow photographers Kaylynn and Valerie; I’m so happy they came!!! We were able to share with each other all that we learned and meet a ton of other photographers along the way.
From every speaker, I walked away with at least one lesson learned and the desire to really focus on the ways I am currently shooting and doing business. The speakers touched on a variety of topics ranging from shooting techniques, lens selection, branding, and marketing.
There were SO many other talented artists there and so much to learn; during the trade show, I seriously felt like a kid in a candy store. I was excited to attend and I’m even more excited to be back here in Lafayette, implementing everything and challenging myself more everyday.When I arrived in Las Vegas, the first part of WPPI that I participated in, was observing the print competition. It was incredible and reminded me of the days we spent during critiques in architecture school (above).
After print competition, I went to hear Becker speak; he was motivational, passionate, and a GENIUS for starting the bschool. I am a huge fan of Becker’s approach: creating an amazing experience for your clients.
That night, we made our way to the Grand Arena for the Fashion Show. We also met a few wonderful people, including Lindsey:
…and Jessica! :)
Check out the number of people! INSANE.
….yes, ladies, Nigel Barker is as beautiful in person as he is on TV! :)
Although it may appear as though I was actively roaming around the tradeshow, I was, at this moment, completely exhausted. There were SO many people and SO many vendors.
It was nice meeting so many of you in Vegas!
