Boy oh boy......do I have the blues....this year was supposed to be our year to step up in the education department and downplay on the gear department. Last year I could not get vacation time around WPPI time, and this year, it was the same ole politics, this week was also NOT available for vacation at work! ARGH!!!!!
I am off on Fridays and Saturdays, but damn it, I wanted to be in Vegas all week, I NEEDED TO BE THERE! I feel awful and almost sick to my stomach thinking about tonight's WPPI Kickoff Party and ALL of my favorite Photographers and mentors like Skip Cohen, Bambi Cantrell, Jerry Ghionis, Yervant Z., Joe Buissinck and more.....I could just see it now the skits, the inspiration, the education, Jerry Ghionis singing karaoke....and here we are at home as our Friday rolls around tomorrow.
Well, maybe THIS IS IT! This WILL be the last WPPI Convention I miss, and I mean it! I have already talked to hubby, we are not getting any younger, if we are going to build YStudio NOW is the time....so as I stay home or go to work during WPPI, I promised myself to not only learn ONE thing everyday, but learn MANY things everyday, read, study, practice, shoot, shoot and shoot some more.
I look at missing WPPI two years in a row, as a MAJOR inspiration and a loud and clear message, that the time is coming soon! I'm grateful to have such a great job, but in order to be great at what we do, we must LOVE what we do......it's time for YStudio Photography and Weddings 9-1-1 to be my full-time......and next year, I AM GOING TO WPPI! Watch! Happy almost Friday everybody!
