WPPI 2011 Schedule

So I’m going to be honest, I have a love/hate relationship with the “what’s our schedule” posts. Because honestly, they feel just a little too “tell your people to call my people” to me. I mean who do we think we are?? Kim Kardashian opening up the Vegas New Year’s party? No, we’re just going to a photo conference. A very, very, insanely large photo conference.

And that’s the thing.

Connecting with someone at WPPI can be a lot like finding a needle in a haystack. And the first few times we went I remember feeling so frustrated because we never knew where anyone was. And we would go the whole week without ever once bumping in to someone we really wanted to see.

Hence, the “what’s our schedule” posts. We put together some of the places & times that we definitely know we’ll be somewhere, that way if you want to you can find us. Y’know, without that whole haystack feeling.

Saturday, Feb 19th
*Pictage Lens & Learn with the Boys & Girls Club of Las Vegas. We’ll be spending all day with these kids teaching them photography, and I’m sure learning a lot more from them than what we teach them along the way. It’s one of the things I’m most excited for this year.

Sunday, Feb 20th
*From 3:30 on, we’ll be hanging around the trades show and in a couple classes, followed by the Fashion Show in the Grand Garden Arena.
*That night we’ll be swinging by the GoBee & [b] parties, so be sure to say hi if you’re at either of those!

Monday, Feb 21st
* From 2:00-3:00 we’ll be hanging out & answering questions at the Couture Book booth & we’ll also have our “Justin & Mary: The Weddings” book with us so you can take a look at that if ya want! After that, we’ll be at the trade show & a couple of classes until dinner.
* Later we’ll be hitting up the Airplanes & Blazers party, but only for a little while because we have to get up EARLY the next day.

Tuesday, Feb 22nd
*From 7:00-8:45am we’ll be drinking a LOT of coffee and hanging out with the 20 winners of our “Shoot Out w/ J&M” contest! If you see me after and it looks like I have bed head, it’s because I DO!
*From 3:00-4:00 we’ll be speaking at the Lens Pro to Go booth, talking about our favorite lenses and why these guys pretty much rock!.
* That night we will most definitely be hitting up the insane Pictage Party at Studio 54. I packed my dancing shoes, so I better see you there!

Wednesday, Feb 23rd
*We’ll be taking it easy & getting ready for our talk. Otherwise known as hermit day.

Thursday, Feb 24th
*We’ll be presenting our Platform “How to be a Rainmaker: Ten Tips to Turn the Tides” from 9:00-11:00am and we hope to see you all there!

I promise we aren’t scary at all so if you see us and want to, please come up & say hi! We would love that! Even if I do have bed head and look super engrossed in my coffee! :)

Just tell your people to call our people. :) :)
