Professional Photographer Mai Duong, the most enthusiastic photographer you will ever meet.


Next stop on the February Awesomeness Train: WPPI in Las Vegas!

Thanks to Leather Craftsmen, I got to go to the WPPI Convention in Las Vegas. Some classes were disappointing, while others were awesome. I tried to go to as many classes as possible, attending classes from 8am to 8pm, and only straying to visit the exhibitor booths at the Trade Show and eat. I was on a mission at the Trade Show to do as much research on album companies (of which there were 50-60 companies) . Mornings started at 7am (waiting in long coffee lines) and dinners weren’t finished until 11pm. Everyone was excited to be around fellow photo geeks, so we stayed up late talking for hours about photography, photo gear, courses we’d been to, and courses we wanted to go to. I’m pretty sure I averaged less than four hours of sleep a night and about 10 miles of walking a day. I was exhausted by the end of the convention, but the amount of knowledge I gained (more on that in another post) and the friends I made was worth it.

Kayso came along to classes in my bag, but I told him that he had to stay behind for the Awards show. He tried to convince me otherwise by dressing up for the event.
