I'm Back!

i'm back from las vegas and it was a whirlwind of a trip. i had a fantastic time! there were so many photographers there it was crazy.

since i was only there for a few days i had to squeeze in a bunch of stuff in a short amount of time. the days were packed attending talks, classes, networking and parties. i left with so much good information and business tips i'm excited to get going with some changes for my business. i also got a chance to check out some new vendors and talk to them about certain services and albums. i got a lot accomplished in just a few days.

monday night i went to the awesome photo lovecat party hosted with pay it forward photo and it was pretty cool. they said they were giving away lots of prizes and they weren't joking around. i won a great new camera bag which couldn't come at a better time. i'm starting to outgrow my current crumpler bag so this will definitely be put to good use. at the party i met a bunch of cool photographers and i also got to meet ones i only know from their blogs. it was good to put a face and a real voice to them all.

i did get some gambling done too which was pretty lucky. the 8 came up a few times on the roulette table and i had a good amount of chips covering it so i was pretty happy! the photographers poker tournament was a bunch of fun too. i lasted longer than i thought but finally got knocked out by a guy named charlie from oklahoma. stupid pocket kings. believe it or not i didn't take any photos in vegas. i brought my cameras but never busted them out. there was too much going on and i didn't want to lug around the big camera. the only photo i have is from the kiss photobooth at the tradeshow. i look like a goof ball.

i'm looking forward to next year's WPPI. now it's back to work.
