What happens when 20,000 photographers converg on Las Vegas?

Wow… I was so blessed to be in the presence of some of the most talented photographers in the world this week in Las Vegas. The annual WPPI convention brings in about 20,000 photographers world wide each year to Bally’s and Paris for one of the best photographers conferences in the world! I met some amazing people and made many new friends.

My favorite presentation from the show was given by the wonderful Jesh De Rox. Jesh is extremely gifted and is one of the neatest people you will ever meet! He spoke about why building relationships is so important. He also spoke a lot about fear and what he called misplaced fear. As he describes it, this is the fear that holds us back and keeps us from doing amazing things.

Listening to Jesh was just what I needed, his words hit me with so much sincerity and inspiration causing me to reevaluate what is important in life. Thank you Jesh for sharing your soul with all of us who were fortunate enough to share two and a half hours with you. You are truly an inspiration and I’m sure your “Spiral Upward” project will be a huge success!

Here are some images from my time in Vegas and some of the friends that I met.

It’s only fitting that I start out with some images of Jesh.

Here I am with Rhett Olson, Megan Reeder, Shellee, Kellee Smith, Stacey Young, Jesh, Amy Seely, Michelle Andersen and Joshua Gene.

This is the amazingly talented and funny [b]ecker!

There are many many extremely talented female photographers around the world… here are two that have inspired me and had a huge impact on my photography.

The SUPER SWEET Jasmine Star

This is me with the beautiful Barbara… she took good care of us at the Le Village Buffet inside of the Paris hotel.

Here I am with Lauren… I don’t know who that is growing out of my right shoulder. Hahaha

Here are some images that we took at night just outside of the Bally’s hotel. I must have thought I was pretty cool wearing sunglasses at night. Hahaha

Here are a couple of shots of me taken by my good friend Michael Lloyd.
