Last week I had the opportunity to attend Wedding and Portrait Photographer’s International Convention (WPPI) courtesy of Image One Camera. The convention took place at the Las Vegas Convention Center and luckily what happened there didn't stay there. WPPI offered a plethora of information that I am still trying to process, both the expo and the classes I took enriched my photography knowledge far more than I had ever imagined. The convention offered something for everyone, whether you were looking for inspiration and motivation from the big names in the industry, or looking to check out the latest gear and cameras. WPPI is all about learning and advancing your skills as a photographer as well as networking with other photographers and vendors. Many of the booths in the expo portion schedule product demonstrations as well as photographers who speak on various subjects including lighting techniques, sales tips, and marketing strategies. Along with the expo, there are master classes, platform classes, and photo walks that give attendees the chance to get a hands-on experience with some of the industries best and brightest. WPPI truly was the best way to start off 2017. I left the convention feeling refreshed and renewed, with ideas and skills to enhance my work as a photographer.
