A few weeks ago I headed over to Las Vegas for WPPI (wedding portrait photographers international) in which about 11,000 – 14,000 photographers new and old got together to learn from one another and hone their skills as artists and business people. The fact of the matter is that that art of photography can be learned on your own via more experienced photographers but the business side of photography has been severely lacking. This year I ditched the artsy classes of posing and photoshop and headed over to classes such as “business law for photographers 101.” Although my business is an LLC, I do have a business checking account and a business license there are a few things that I am missing or at least not going as far as I should. I’ll talk about the specifics of business in other posts but for now I want to show a few photographs that I took while there. I have the silly problem of taking photographs but not putting them up on here or on facebook.
