WPPI Wedding Photographers Convention March 2013
I just got back from the WPPI wedding photographers show in Las Vegas. This show consists of seminars given by top wedding photographers from all over the world. Most major photographic and wedding manufacturers also attend. In fact, there are so many new products and services that it fills two convention arenas.
The convention is about one week in length and contains numerous photographic seminars on techniques such as lighting, posing, and exposure and so on. It is also a chance to interact with other photographers and equipment suppliers. If you have an issue with any piece of equipment or photo technique, it is relatively easy to find experts to discuss the problem.
It is also one of the best places in the country to purchase new equipment because many national retailers attend the show. B & H photo, for example, is a retailer from New York City. They flew out at least eight salespersons to man their booth. They offer goods that are very competitively priced.
It is certainly not all work in Las Vegas where the weather this time of year can be very nice. I did manage to find time to attend the Cirque Du Soleil’s production of the Beatles song fest "Rain" which is playing at the Mirage Hotel. It was fantastic. By the way I had a champagne brunch buffet at the Mirage which was also superb.
All in all it was a great conference and a super way to maintain and refine your wedding skills and services.
