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.
hOne of my new favorite finds are these artsy press printed books by Artifact Uprising.
hThe most interesting new product this year is a wardrobe styling service for your portraits clients by Pina Fore.
hFilm enthusiasts (myself included) gathered at the booth of Richard’s Photo Lab.
gThe “momtographer” movement is on the rise.
ghII love the handmade quality of these albums from Priscilla Foster Handmade.
jThe 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.
hThank you Canon CPS for cleaning and checking my cameras. A must have service for every photographer.
gOnly in Vegas… a pop up wedding chapel.
hEvery year, my good friends and fellow colleagues Augie and Maria host a dinner to kick off the week’s activities in Vegas. t And did I mention the parties? Every year, the vendor sponsored parties get bigger and better.
