Megan's perspective of WPPI

by

You know her, you love her. Our studio manager Megan is that calming voice on the other end of the phone or the kind email awaiting you with a smile in your inbox. With us for nearly a year already, Megan helps keep the day-to-day in order at the office, but is also quite a force with a camera. She was a second photographer for many weddings last summer and will be doing the same this summer, too. This WPPI was Megan's first, and she wants to share a little about her experience with a few images with you, too. Making her blogging debut, say hello to Megan!....
  
Going into our Vegas trip I was both excited and nervous. Emilie warned us that we would experience four long days of go, go, go and very little sleep, so to prepare I packed paper and pens, power food, comfortable shoes and, of course, sparkles. She was right. The four days I spent at WPPI were a complete whirlwind. There was so much to take in, listen to and see, there were times when it was difficult to prioritize and you certainly couldn't experience everything. I listened to inspirational speakers, had a number of aha moments and oogled at new products and gear. Among my favorite presenters were Andrea Joki, Melody Hood, Amy Deputy, Jessica Claire and Colleen Wainwright.

By the time Wednesday rolled around, the night we were to fly out, it dawned on me that I hadn't left the MGM (did I mention that our hotel, conference center, casino and restaurants were all in the same complex?!). So, cameras in hand, Steve and I took a cab to the Bellagio and wandered back along the Strip. Here I was hit with another onslaught of imagery: blown glass art by Chihuly, a fountain show set to music, the "Eiffel tower," New York, New York and many spaces gold and glittery. I left Vegas that night exhausted inside and out, but wow am I excited for wedding season to arrive!

  2. I'm delighted you enjoyed the program! And I love that Chihuly ceiling, too. (Although my shot of it is not nearly as good, obviously.)

    Thanks!

  3. Nice, Megan! Love seeing how you saw WPPI. The shot of the model in the background with the print of her in the foreground caught my eye - I dig it.
