While at the WPPI (Wedding and Portrait Photographers International) conference in Vegas I had a chance to do something really cool!!
Davina Fear, another awesome wedding photographer arranged for some one-on-one sessions with photographers. She asked if I would mentor for a few sessions and I of course said YES!!
The focus of my sessions were to help answer questions pertaining to personal marketing and presentation. A big passion of mine is to get people as excited about my photographs as I am. I think it really gets people excited about life and I’m happy to share that excitement. I showed them some of my information packet pages, DVD cases and iPod slideshows to give them some ideas on how they can get their clients excited.
I had an awesome time mentoring Brody Dezember, Kevin Meyers, Millie Holloman and Davina who all donated money for their sessions. In all honesty they should been mentoring me since they’ve all be doing this longer than I have. Thanks so much guys! It was a lot of fun and I can’t wait to do this at the Pictage PartnerCon in September.
Ok, so here’s the biggest part of all of this!!
This whole thing came about by Davina trying to find a way to raise money for Thirst Relief International. Thirst Relief who was started by fellow photographers Jim and Lara Davis-Hicks is an organization who’s goal is to provide humanitarian and disaster relief to those in need worldwide through the provision of safe, clean drinking water.
So out of this last minute event, Thirst Relief had over $1000 raised to help change 200 lives!! SO AMAZING!!!
Thanks so much for your effort Davina, Jim and Jeff Jochum (who provided a space for us to meet in)!!
