I am proud to say I won my trip to Vegas Via the WPPI Moab Print contest and this was my first time at the convention! It was amazing! I got to meet some incredible people while I was there that I have only known Via the internet. Such as the editors of Rangefinder and AfterCapture, Bill Hurter and Abigail Ronck who are both amazing to write for !
I also got to meet the great folks of Apollo Photo Imaging who printed my Book for the Kodak Nexpress Photo Book award, which I am very thrilled to say I won first place in! So glad I got to stay the extra night for the awards! I was so shocked I almost did not make it to the stage for me award! A beautiful Crystal Trophy and a nice check!
I also got to meet fellow digital artists such as Marilyn Sholin, Jeremy Sutton, Karen Bonaker, and Helen Yancy whom I have wanted to meet for years!
Karen recently started the Digital Art Academy which I will be teaching for the end of August so be sure and look for me there!
Vegas was amazing, from the plane ride there over the grand canyon to the walk down the famous strip at night! It was like nothing I have ever seen before!
The Nikon Party with the free Blues Travelers concert was very exciting and a great photo op!
I'm a canon fan all the way, but thanks for a great concert Nikon!
I will never forget the friends I met and new ones made and the all in all sensational adventure of WPPI 2009!
Thank you Abigail for all you did to make my trip possible and for your kindness!
Congrats Bill Hurter on your life time achievement award! Yeha!
