Vegas!

Just got back from Vegas for this year's WPPI. We had the most fantastic time learning, meeting photographers from all over, finding new products to further improve our workflow and all that good stuff.

Kicked it off by watching the The Beatles LOVE. Thought this image from my point & shoot was pretty cool...
This was exactly how it felt like watching the show... with my very good friend Maureen Ford

At the Young Guns, Pictage party, BluDomain party, etc.
With Jim Garner, Jesh De Rox, Julie Weaver, Tammie Kim, Marco, Joe Cogliandro, Roberto Valenzuela

with Jay Goldman, Roberto Falck, Trung Huynh, Mike Steelman, Diana Montoya, Maureen Ford, Krista Guenin, Amanda Harris, Meghan Thomas
Highest concentration of iPhone owners you can imagine. I'd have to go blog hunting to find who kept that fun photo booth shot with all our iPhones...

The highlight of my trip was getting in the International Print Competition. It was my first time to join and my prints earned accolades. Yay! (Mom & Dad, I'll just email the pictures with me standing right next to them :D)



Can't wait for next year... It's always SO much fun finding new friends and getting back really inspired.
