Last week, Las Vegas became a temporary home to some 15,000 photographers from all over the country (and many from other parts of the world) during the annual WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International) conference. There were classes on every topic imaginable from how to run a smooth business to how to work with and master the use of light with everything in between, not to mention one of the largest photography related trade shows in the country. Naturally, this wasn’t enough entertainment for me so I had to find something interesting to do in the 3 hours that I wouldn’t be otherwise occupied, so when I happened to chance upon an available seat in Mike Colón’s workshop, I didn’t waste any time. The workshop lasted most of the day and was very laid back, with all of us asking questions and discussing topics that included business sense, marketing and various photographic techniques. Afterward, we all drove out to the Nevada desert in order to put some of what we learned and talked about to use on a bridal model shoot. Here are some of my favorites.
Be on the lookout for another blog post with more photos from a workshop I did with the Bui Brothers, a well as a fun model shoot involving two gorgeous models, a gorgeous Corvette and Old Las Vegas.. stay tuned :)
