Get "Inspired" baby!
I am a super social person and I crave approval from my peers, especially my fellow photographers, but up until last year, I only knew of a couple working photographers and we didn’t get to hang out much. But my great friend, and really the only good photographer friend, Meg, told me about this fantastic retreat/conference called Inspire and suggested that I attend. So last year, right before my wedding season officially kicked off, I headed to Concord MA, and spent three days and nights with some really amazing and successful shooters. No wonder they called it Inspire! Because let me tell you, I was Inspired like mad. My business exploded and I over the course of the year, I have remained in touch with all of these gifted folks from all over. So this year, I decided to return. The conference was held in Sturbridge this year and they have already announced the dates for next year, so if you are a photographer that is serious about what you do, RUN don’t walk and attend next year. You can find out more about Inspire and all the details for next years event by clicking here.
One thing I know about these photographers is that not only do they work hard but they play hard too! Take a peek at Karaoke night and see what I mean!
