traveling can either be really exciting or just plain work. well in this case it was a bit of both but I had a blast doing both and would be there in a heart beat learning from some of my idols in the business. I attend the highly acclaimed PPA Convention in Nashville, TN this year. Meeting new Vendors and getting to know the photography community is always on my high priority list. Having attended 2 conventions in 2009 I was new to the ever popular PP of A (stands for Professional Photographers of America). Any photographer that is looking to join an organization that focuses on empowering you as a business owner should seek out there services.
I found a great couple that wanted to share their hotel space and me being the type that loves to meet people I was all game. We ended up attending the same 3 day studio management services workshops which was great for bouncing idea back and forth while also customizing them for our business. I didn’t even mention their name now did I? Allison Ragsdale Photography which is owned by Allision and co owned by Matt her mathematical genius husband. We pretty much hung out 24/7 during the convention and I have to admit we connected as friend faster than anyone I know. I really am excited to meet people that are just as dedicated to photography and have a passion to make this a life long career.
