May 2012: From The Group Publisher & Show Director

I miss WPPI, I really miss it. I miss the people, my friends, the clients, the speakers, the MGM staff—and I really miss the energy of the show. All the work, stress and endless conference calls that go into planning WPPI, it’s all worth it to me. It’s something that I’ve had a hand in building over the last eight years, and every year it gets bigger and better; we keep coming up with new ideas, new speakers and new events to keep it fresh. It’s a labor of love for me, and it has been since the day I started working at WPPI.
The good news is that I get to keep that energy going as we introduce our first ever WPPI U on the road, coming to a city near you this summer. We launched WPPI U two years ago at WPPI 2012, and it was the highest rated program we’ve ever done. A focus on education for the emerging pro, WPPI U covers everything you need to know from lighting, posing, editing, wedding, portrait, business and marketing. We cover it all in two days, plus a portfolio review, and we already have Sue Bryce, Tamara Lackey and Sal Cincotta in the line-up, just to name a few of our top professionals and best teachers in the industry.
Get ready for summer as the best of WPPI comes your way. Where else can you learn from the best in the industry, network with your fellow photographers and enjoy yourself at the same time? Plus, with admission to WPPI U, you get a free full registration to WPPI 2013 next March. That’s a pretty good value if you ask me.
Hope to see you this summer.
