What’s going on everybody!   Tonya and I want to first give you all a “holla” and let you know we have now landed in Las Vegas, Nevada for the annual Wedding & Portrait Photographer’s International Conference.  What is that you ask?  Good question!

It is the largest professional photographer’s conference in the world.  Last year over 15,000 professional photographer’s attended the event and there were over 300 vendors displaying their products.  There are photo-shoots hosted by different photographers, workshops from sunup to sundown, welcome receptions, print judging, banquets, awards ceremony, and anything else you can think of that relates to the business of photography.

The photography workshops are broken down in categories such as weddings, high school seniors, portraits, lighting, children, boudoir, business, lighting, post production, workflow, posing, and any other niche or area you want to learn more about.

What we have learned from attending this conference annually I cannot measure, but I can tell you it has helped me to not only be a better photographer and business man, but the friendships that are developed and maintained until the following year are unsurpassed in any other profession I’ve been associated with.

I can’t wait to see what new product lines are being introduced that our customers may want, what new tips and techniques people have come up with and are teaching others, and just the entire vibe of the event.  We will be sharing some of those experiences over the next week so I hope you enjoy it.  As always, don’t be shy and not leave comments at the bottom of this page.  We love to read them!
