Imaging USA Day Three

WE SURVIVED! Imaging USA was fantastic as usual. Cami & I are so pumped up and inspired by all the great speakers and beautiful images and ideas we’ve seen and heard. Here are a few fun shots from the final day with some of our FAVORITE photographers in the whole world. 🙂

Welcome to Nashville!

Cami & I, along with our good friend and fellow photographer, Kate McKinley, finally arrived at the Gaylord Opryland Hotel in Nashville. We’re attending “Imaging USA”, the PPA’s big national photography convention we go to every year for ideas and inspiration.

After we got settled, I went down to get the lay of the land so I know where we’re going for our seminars in the morning. I get down there and staring me in the face is this HUGE, larger-than-life display with one of my images on it! 🙂 It’s a photo of Rugby USA’s Team Captain breaking through the masses that I shot last year. A few months ago I got a call saying they’d like to use a couple of my images for some “displays” at the conference this year…I had NO IDEA it was going to be something like this! I’m SUPER STOKED!!! I’ll get Cami or Kate to take one of me standing next to it tomorrow…hehehe!

Welcome to Nashville!
