I am a member WPPI; Wedding & Portrait Photographers International and normally look forward to the annual conference they have in Las Vegas, NV. It’s a week long convention that is just filled with photography things that will overflow your brain. Trade shows, seminars, workshops, lectures, dinners, parties etc.. Just to give you an idea of how popular it is, last year over 12,000 photographers swooned the MGM Convention Center for the 2010 WPPI Convention…including myself. Yes, TWELVE THOUSAND photographers in one convention! I really wanted to go this year, I mean…Vegas and me are two peas in a pod! I will schlep over to Vegas any chance I get, so this was supposed to be weekend where I’d be in the desert. Instead I remain here in Los Angeles, working on the projects I have. But, I am excited about the things that are coming! Very excited.
I was trying my best to attend this year, especially since some of my dear friends will be attending and it’s a great time to catch up and connect. In fact one of my friends Rosaura Sandoval will be speaking at Photographers Ignite, which is held on the last day of the convention. I truly wanted to be there to support her and cheer her on… instead I will be there in spirit. GO ROSIE!
So, since I can’t be at the Happiest Place on Earth, I thought I’d post another a picture of another happy place of mine. The beach. Have a great weekend all. xoxo
