WPPI 2013 | Las Vegas | Photographer’s Convention

Every spring, throngs of photographers from all over the globe descend on Las Vegas for the annual Wedding Portrait Photographers International (WPPI) convention.  This year’s event attracted over 14,000 attendees that included students, newbies and old timers like myself.  Parties, instructional classes, parties, trade show, and parties are the week’s activities.  Whether novice or seasoned pro, there is something here for everyone to learn and be inspired.   Like most of my colleagues, I came home  from this year’s convention with a checklist of ideas and can’t wait to implement some of the things that I learned into my business.

The Canon booth is by far the busiest booth every year.  I feel like a kid in a candy store every time I approach their booth.
