WPPI Convention 2008 - Las Vegas
If you have never been to WPPI, then you wouldn't understand why Allan is warming up to attend a tradeshow. This event is the annual convention of Wedding and Portrait Photographers International and provides not only one of the largest tradeshows for the photographic industry but also platform speakers on a wide range of topics such as lighting, posing, marketing, workflow and, well, how to make money as a professional photographer. We learned from some of the most amazing and business savvy photographers from around the world. Allan attended the convention last year and came home with a wealth of knowledge but I felt like I had somehow missed out on a wonderful event so I knew I had to attend this year and I am glad I did. Some of the best programs were the Business Institute- an all-day training extravaganza and both the Breakfast Club and the First Ladies of Photography- round table discussions with some of the top female photographers. Amazing people, awesome knowledge and no sleep...the perfect convention!
Go Allan Go!
