viva las vegas

Last week i attended my very first WPPI photography convention held in Las Vegas, Nevada. The first couple of days were spent in dark rooms with judges and moderators to observe judging of the WPPI print competition.  This by far was the best learning experience i’ve ever had !  amazing !

Many attendees were from around the globe attending workshops on lighting, business and celebrity photographers.
