Wppi 2015 | Las Vegas, Nevada

WPPI has proven in previous years to be a great place to gain knowledge, inspiration, learn new techniques, business practises and see new products.  Being the largest photography conference and represented internationally, it’s bound to be great!  The days were filled attending classes, walking the massive tradeshow and listening to presenters – Richard Photo Lab is awesome for bringing in some of my favourite film photographers to share at their booth.

It’s really interesting listening to each speaker and hearing what works well for them and their success and it’s different for each one.  Remembering our art and businesses are very individual as we all have different strengths, weaknesses, interests and values.  There is so much information to absorb, process and then pull into my photography + business the parts that will work well and are a good fit for me.

Thank you CPS USA for taking care of this Canadian member!  I always appreciate a perk of their program to have a camera and a lens professionally cleaned + checked while at the conference.

The keynote presentation by world-renowned photographer, Joe McNally, was exceptional!!  He has a great sense of humor and having been on assignment for National Geographic, TIME, The New York Times, etc around the globe it was a captivating presentation!

Here’s a few photos shared on Instagram while we were away…

  These busy, fast-paced days were most enjoyable being there with Melissa and Brandi, the creative duo of P&S Weddings.  It’s great having others to recap what we heard, bounce ideas off one another and hold one another accountable, and of course continue to be each other’s encouragers!  Once again they made it a memorable trip to WPPI!!  We had some fun in the photo booths too!

Something new for us this year was to sit in on the live print judging which was really interesting to hear the judge’s constructive feedback on the submissions and post their scores.  WPPI comes at a great time of the year and I always come home with helpful information, fresh ideas, a to-do list and reinforced ambition!
