So I went to my first photography convention this past week and it was so much fun! The speakers blew my mind, especially Jerry Ghionis, whom I never really heard of before my trip. I have been blog stalking some of the other speakers for a long time, so nothing surprised my about their awesomeness except how totally open they were to hanging around the lobby, talking with everyone, answering questions, etc. I am so impressed at how collaborative the photography community seems to be. It makes for much a nicer experience when ‘so called’ competitors become colleagues. I am so truly inspired from my trip, not just creatively but also on a personal level to continue to work on being the best that I can be in all areas of my life. It is amazing what we can all accomplish with the right attitude.
Here’s a shout out to the wonderful photogs I met while there. Thank you for being so sweet, it was wonderful to get to know you and I look forward to staying in touch and watching what is to come for all of us!
Allison & Kyle from Studio 28 in So Cal
Tamara Kenyon from Boise ID
Brittany Dawson from Austin, Tx (Yes, I met a fellow Austinite there in Cali!!) Brittany, hope we can collaborate on some projects soon!
