My last post, I talked about how amazing 2015 was for me, and how much I was looking forward to what 2016 had in store; well, I’m happy to say that so far I’m happy with how the year is unfolding. I continue to meet and shoot with some of the most wonderful women Colorado has to offer, and I just got back from my second trip to Las Vegas for WPPI. Not only was the trip a much-needed break from the day-to-day grind here at home, but being able to meet and listen to industry leaders has been a welcome recharging of my soul. Up next is Shutterfest in St. Louis in a couple weeks, and I anxiously look forward to what that will bring – as well as continuing to see what this year has to offer.
I want to thank the Beautiful, Sweet, and Talented Bianca Gaden for shooting with me again while I was in town – we got some AMAZING images!
One final note: While at WPPI, I attended a lecture by one of the photographers I look up to (this guy is INSANELY AMAZING!) and as one of his give-away at the end of the lecture, he announced a fun little Instagram contest for the final items – one of two seats at one of his workshops. As I was driving home from Vegas yesterday, he announced the two winners…one of which was ME! Needless to say, I’m over the moon about this and can’t wait to attend his workshop later this year! So, one last Thank You to Mr. Roberto Valenzuela for this WONDERFUL opportunity, and for being such an inspiration. Oh, and below is my winning image for the contest – the goal was to get as ridiculous as possible while reading his new book and post to Instagram.
