When my alarm went off at 3 AM, I was seriously doubting my decision to drive to Atlanta for the day. I watched my family sleeping in bed so peacefully, and almost decided to stay with them. A four hour drive at that ungodly hour, forget it! And when I couldn't find a mug to bring some coffee in- well that was just almost too much.
But once I got on the road and got some caffeine in my system, I started to get excited. I was on my way to Imaging USA, one of the biggest photography conferences out there. There were famous photographers from all around the world teaching classes, and a huge expo of some of the best vendors around, with tons of products to touch, feel, and smell (what? I love the smell of a fresh printed album). This was definitely an event to be excited about.
Between the classes and the expo, I really enjoyed this event! I learned a lot from some really amazing people, and found some really great products to offer. I can't wait to share them with you! I even got to meet the amazing photographer Sue Bryce, who I've been learning from online, and whom I admire very much.
As an added bonus, I was able to meet up with an old friend from El Paso. It was so great to see her, catch up, and of course talk photography.
I don't have pictures to share, because I was too busy taking it all in, but I can promise you this: You'll be seeing the results in my work and in the amazing new products I'll be offering!
And to all the photographers from around the country that were there- I'll see you next year!
