Hey there! OK - gonna apologize in advance for the HUGE post. :)
I'm back from Vegas, along with the 10,000 other photographers who descended upon Sin City for a week of fun, networking and, well, lots of partying. This was my second trip out there for WPPI, and it did not disappoint. Last year I found most of the photographers were from the western part of the country, but this year the east coast represented!
Here's a few fun shots from my trip I wanted to share with my friends. I wish I had taken a picture with every person I met for the first time and those I've known for years, but that would just make me look like a dork. OK - a bigger dork. :)
Clockwise from me, Mary Beth Tyson
, Aimee Cooper
, Amy Martin
, and my roomie Colin Michael
Always entertaining Fred Egan Rockstar road-trip

Last and never least my good friend Regis Chen
Fun stuff aside, I also was fortunate to be asked by the GraphiStudio
team to speak at their booth during the convention. Being my first speaking gig at a tradeshow I must admit I was super nervous. I have newfound respect for those friends of mine who get up in front of 200+ crowds on regular basis with such ease. I want to thank my friends for coming to support me, it meant more than you can imagine to see your friendly faces. Here's a few pics....

. Thanks Kim - You rock!
Big time thanks to my friend Scarlett
for grabbing these shots of me too!
This will also be one of my last posts on this blog! :( As I approach my 300th post, it's time to say goodbye. I've been working with Ross at Flosites
and am so excited at the progress he's made. He's worked super hard on this one and I'll be posting some shots from a shoot I did last week out at the Valley of Fire.
Here's one Riley grabbed of me shooting - thanks to Aimee and Riley for all your help!!
