I've shared the backstory on images like this many times before, but if you're new to SCU...
In 2005 Maureen Neises, president of Graphi Studio hit me with an idea - to produce an annual day-in-the-life of WPPI album featuring four different photographers. It was a perfect way to capture different perspectives on the convention each year.
These images were captured by Victor Sizemore, one of four artists telling the WPPI 2007 story. Also joining him that year were Jim Garner, Catherine Hall, and Calvin Hayes.
What I love most about Throwback Thursdays is the journey down Memory Lane each old photograph takes you. Taking a fun look in your rearview mirror now and then is a whole lot of fun. Plus, check out the people in the photographs. I think this was our last year at Paris and Bally's before moving to the MGM Grand.
Throwback photographs are also a great marketing tool, especially for those of you who are children and family portrait artists. A blog post sharing old images is a perfect way to remind Mom how fast the kids are growing up, and her family is changing! And, obviously how it's time for a new family portrait!
Happy Throwback Thursday!
