So a couple of really cool things happened this month!
First, I can finally say I have been to Las Vegas! Before last weekend the farthest west I had travelled was to Arkansas, yes. Arkansas.
Second, WPPI! The WPPI conference is a massive photography school and trade show aimed at wedding and portrait photography. You see everything from master classes from people like my mentor and good friend Moshe Zusmanhttp://www.moshezusman.com/ teaching the business of wedding photography to seeing some of the most beautiful portraits taken being judged by a panel of top level photographers. Its an experience to be sure.
If you are serious about your photography definitely budget some time and money for this, you WILL benefit from it greatly. Being around some of the most talented and inspirational people in our profession, seeing how they do everything from close a sale to make even the most boring photographic situation incredible.
These images were some behind the scenes from my good friend Kristi Sherk's photowalk around the MGM Grand complex.The walk was sponsored by a great light modifier company Photoflex http://www.photoflex.com, great people! go check em' out!! Here Kristi was demonstrating the various uses of reflectors and scrims to mimic the effect of studio light, It was a fun and educational experience, as I mainly use my 42" reflector to bounce my flashes.
The WPPI experience is one that I will cherish, have met some great people and was able to take part in an amazing weekend with some good friends
and fellow photographers from the DC area. If you are on the fence about attending I can whole-heartedly say you should take the leap and go.
