Whew, it’s been a busy couple of busy weeks! I feel like I haven’t been as active here as usual so I wanted to give everyone an update. We have been working non-stop on the studio; painting, cleaning, more painting, and doing some cosmetic work on the interior. Let me re-phrase that, Nick has been doing some cosmetic work. His honey do list is crazy long! We officially moved everything in this weekend. Today, we finally have some warm weather so we are heading out to paint all the new antique furniture I have been buying for the studio. Friday will be my first boudoir/glamour session in the new space. I am so excited! Several have been asking about our new location, the address is 423 E High. We are about 5 blocks from the Capital. The exterior is getting a full makeover this spring/summer including a new deck, paint, and lots of landscaping.
Last week, we took the week off to attend WPPI in Las Vegas. This was my third conference and Nick’s first. It was an amazing time had by all! If you haven’t attended this conference and you are a photographer/cinematographer you need too! There are several classes you can attend to sharpen your skills on shooting and running your business. The conference is held every year late February early March. Get ready to book your tickets for 2015 at the end of this year!
The highlights from attending WPPI always meeting and networking with peers. I met so many new amazing people I hope to stay in touch with through social media. Nick and I attended the opening evening event held at the Hakksasan night club (which holds more than 4,000 people!) in the MGM Grand Hotel where the conference is held. It was fun dancing the night away. We also woke up early one morning to join a group of photographers who ran to the nostalgic “Welcome to Las Vegas” sign. It was a little over 4 miles, but it was the easiest run of my life. No hills in the dessert! The vendor expo is always amazing and huge. It took about two days to get through everything. Another highlight from the trip was indulging on some Asian Nachos! If you are ever in Vegas go to the Venetian Hotel , visit the Grand Luxe Café, and order the Asian Nachos. You can thank me later ;)
While I was there I was able to sit down with Chris Becker on his new venture, PhotogRefers.com. The article will be released end of this week on Fstoppers.com. Don’t forget to check it out photographers and sign up for a free account. This month is starting to heat up, spring is in the air. Our editorial 2015 senior model shoot is this weekend! Stay tuned, we will be releasing our senior magazine in the next couple of weeks and begin accepting appointments.
