WPPI 2011

Like many wedding and portrait photographers around the world, the Junebug team is busy making its final preparations before heading off to Las Vegas at the end of the week for the 2011 WPPI photography convention. Besides the parties, parties and more parties (win tickets to one of the best ones below!) there are, of course, endless opportunities to learn. The speaker schedule has something for everyone and topics range from successful business practices to shooting techniques to creative approaches to your work, and they incorporate photography styles of all kinds. A number of our amazing Junebug Member Photographers are speaking throughout the week, and we’ll be at as many of these sessions as we can to soak up their expertise. Be sure to say hello if you see us around!
