To digest everything I’ve learned. As I’ve said in my past entries, I’ve learned so much and this was one of those things that was definitely a good thing for business. I’m bringing home so many amazing ideas, so many different products to offer to all of my clients and even some awesome gifts.
Last night was the ending party for the convention and they held it at the Tampa aquarium. What a beautiful place! Earlier in the day, I met a couple other photographers from Ohio and Kentucky and since my roommates weren’t into heading to the aquarium, I hung out with Wini and Emily. It turns out that the three of us had a lot in common, too. Emily loved the aquarium and was just as excited as I was to see the sharks. Wini was so excited to see all of the different cool fish and she just went nuts over a really big green moray eel. What a great trip! We took some amazing pictures at the aquarium.
So, this was an amazing trip and even though it took me away from my family for 5 days, it was very much worth it. I missed them all terribly, but the information that I got from these past days was unbelievable! So now, my next endeavor is in March, when I head to South Carolina for some more training.
I’ll keep you posted with everything that’s going on!
So, today I woke up super early (before 5 a.m!) after a LONG night of partying and had an unbelievable day! I took classes today on marketing, lighting and learned all about a very cool “boutique-y” studio. I walked around the expo all afternoon – it’s SO big and packed with so much information that I was in camera heaven! So nuts!! But it was so exciting, too! There’s so much stuff that’s being brought to market that I just can’t wait to get a hold of it all. And I can’t wait to be able to share it with all of you!
So, in 2008, I’m going to be offering a bunch of new things like great spiral bound “brag” books, and leather bound wallet sized “brag” books, too! You’re just going to have to wait to see everything! Unbelievable stuff! So exciting!
Speaking of exciting, when I had my porfolio review, I got a pretty good one (which always makes me happy!) and she strongly suggested that I enter an image into the Black-and-White category. It’s an image of Ewan and it’s one of my most favorites! So, that’s my new news! I’ll be submitting it to another conference competition in March, too. I’ll let you know how I fare!
So, now I’m off to bed so I can get up and start learning more all over again! This has been an amazing trip so far!!!
I’m writing this from my hotel room in Tampa, Florida. I’m at the Professional Photographers Association Conference and it’s so amazing! Today, I took two classes on Senior photography. This is something that I”ve been interested in doing for a while, but haven’t had the information to do so. Well, today I got a ton of good information on doing Senior photography. I’m so excited to start doing this type of photography. I have a ton of great ideas on posing, getting great images and an amazing referral program, too! So, if you know anyone who’s going to be a senior, graduating in 2009, please send them my way! I’m looking for models who are very active in school activities – athletics, band, cheerleading, poms, etc…you know who’s active in many different facets of school life. I’m offering a free session and like I said, an amazing referral program – but you’ll have to send me an email or give me a call to find out more about it!
This is going to be an amazing year for Frameable Faces! What an amazing opportunity to get in on the growth! I’ll be blogging about what’s been going on day by day as the week goes on! Check back tomorrow to see what happened on Sunday, January 6!
