We're headed back this morning from ShutterFest. Wrapping things up with old and new friends in the bar late yesterday afternoon, I was reminded why all of this is so important. Sure, it's education, raising the bar and networking, but there's something much deeper that happens, especially with a group like this.
It's about spirit and optimism. It's also about a group of people sharing a common passion for business and photography. There are dozens of new people in my network after the last two days and my own attitude is completely recharged...and that's why you need to step out of your world and participate at every workshop/convention you can attend.
This is intentionally meant to be a short post this morning...think of it as having an amazing dinner at your most favorite restaurant and all you want to is savor the taste of the food and wine.
What an amazing week - put Shutter Magazine on your radar and start paying attention to everything Sal and Taylor Cincotta put their name on.
And, to all of you who became new friends this week - thank you for an amazing attitude, your passion for photography and your willingness to help raise the bar on the quality of your business, your images and our industry.
Safe travels home - you know where to find me if I can help.
