Vegas in a day
I had the most tazmanian whirlwind of a time at the Wedding and Portrait Photographers International trade show and conference, hosted by the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. This year I got to see what everyone talks about and yes, it was everything everyone said it was going to be. When I say everyone, I mean everyone that is related to or working within the wedding and portrait industry. You know, just your average 12,000 photographers, any business relating to a camera and the photographic process, and other people like on site backdrop artists to paint you a custom fantasy background of your desire. Crazy! Being in a room with so much stuff and so many energy vortexes bouncing off everyone creative is completely overwhelming, but when I stopped looking around amnd bumping into people, I was in front of my favorite booth and I listened and allowed myself to be inspired by other artists tell their story and how they made that picture, and even how they feel when they work. I learned a lot, absorbed a year's worth of ideas, but mostly, I had fun goofing around with my dear friend, business partner and ultimate gal pal, Cherry Thomas. Here are just a few peaks into our Vegas adventure!
