Next month, Pat and I are lucky enough to be going to WPPI again. It is the Wedding and Portrait Photographers convention that is held every year. We went last year for the first time and learned a ton with both photography and business. This year will be a little more focused now that we know what it’s all about. We definitely didn’t have a clear direction of classes we wanted to take and just took so many that our heads were spinning and our hands were about to fall off from note taking.
This year we have specific goals of what we want to improve on. I know new lighting techniques is at the top of that list as well as running the business more seamlessly….and a little bit of everything in between. Plus, it’ll be good to network with other photographers and to actually meet people that we talk with on Twitter/Facebook all the time.
Of course, we’ll be taking a day to ourselves to explore the deserts of Nevada with our cameras. We had a chance to do that last year and had an awesome time…even though I was forced to wake up at 4am to get sunrise shots by a bunch of dudes with cameras. That’s what happens when you’re surrounded by photographers!
I have to say, we may be the only people that go to Vegas and actually come out smarter! A little broker as well but I’ll focus on the smart part. 🙂
Who else is going?!
