Las Vegas - WPPI

So last week was quite a whirlwind for me. I flew out to Vegas to spend most of the week with about 10,000 other photographers from all over the world at a little event called WPPI. Which stands for wedding and portrait photographers international. The days were filled with classes given by some really awesome photographers that I stalk and a massive tradeshow filled with all kinds of cool photography products like albums, jewelry, and canvases. Needless to say after the longs days and the time difference I was exhausted at the end of each day. But it was so worth it. Now I'm ready to take my business to the next level. Woo Hooo!! I didn't actually take too many pictures while I was there. I took a few with my point and shoot camera that I'll share. The last day we were there I did some shooting of some couples with a few other photographers. I'll post those later.

I stole these first two from my roommate, Brandi's blog.
This is a picture of me and three of my housemates from last years workshop.
It was great to catch up with my old pals.
A shot Brandi took of me taking a picture of the crowd.
The crowd waiting to get into the tradeshow the first day.
This kid was eleven I think. He was working the tradeshow.
Asked Brandi and I how our websites were working for us.
Too Cute!! The next Donald Trump.
The photo jewelry.
I loved this booth. They had some really cool picture frames if anyone is interested.
They definitely had the beach house look.
Oh, and now for the best part. Did I mention I ran into PHILLIP RIVERS at the airport in Raleigh before departing for Vegas? Well, yeah I did. I just about flipped my lid when he walked right in front of me as I was walking out of the sandwich shop with my breakfast sandwich and my coke. My heart was beating a mile a minute. You see he is my favorite NFL quarterback. And for all of you out there that know me you know that I love my Wolfpack. Phillip used to be the QB for the Wolfpack and now he's the QB for the San Diego Chargers. This made my whole trip! Too bad he's married.
