It was an awesome 5 days tour for me in Las Vegas. Got an opportunity to attend a 2 days workshop with one of my all time favourite Australia wedding photographer Yervant, just can’t describe the feeling…. shooting side by side with him and learned some cool photoshop skills from him. One of the reason I admire him and respect him so much is not just he is good in wedding photography, but he is also passionate about wedding photography and willing to share his knowledge and experience. Be able to learn from him for 2 days was like a dream comes true experience for me.
In this trip, I also got to know many talented photographers from all around the world , had a lot of fun. I also had a chance to see my mentors, Alisha and Brook again in the Kodak booth. They are one of the Top 10 wedding photographers in the world ~ American Photo 2007. Can’t thank this couple enough for giving me great advise in my last year photography business, Alisha and Brook made my life so much easier and I’m so blessed to have not one, but TWO top 10 wedding photographers in the world to be my mentor in my career. Here are some more photos to share for my 5 days trip.
The WPPI 2009 was held in MGM Las Vegas this year.
