Man I love this city… I can’t believe I’ve only been home a week… I miss the city already… and can’t wait to go back.
Okay … but next time… I’ll fly both ways… none of this driving 30
hours… no offense Kelly & Jim (it was definitely fun … and not
half as bad as one would think to be in the car for 30 hours).. but I
would much rather have that 30 hours spent listening to jazz and
hanging out in the city…
once we arrived in NOLA… did the AMAZING French Quarter photo shoot
(see previous blog… soo cool) on Monday… THEN it was finally time
for the reason we went… Pictage Partnercon… WOOO HOOO!!
I have to say is … WOW… it totally blew my mind and was so much
fun. I loved that there were less than 500 photographers… it gave the
whole conference such a small intimate feeling.. and that all the meals
were included… every time I talked into the ballroom I met a new
photographer. I made so many new friends from all over the country ..
.I can’t wait to keep in touch and share!!
And the lectures..
.amazing… I found myself crying everyday at how touching and
heartfelt the lecturers were… and how they touched me in the heart. I
always like to think that when I tear up hearing something its the sign
of Passion and Truth!!… boy was there a lot of passion and truth
Some of my favorites…
Mike Colon: “Defining your style”
Justin & Mary Marantz: “How to be a Rainmaker”.. Mary had me crying like a baby
Joe Buissink: “Are you in a rut?”… tears galore again!!
Tasra Dawson: Women Only.. a super cool session for us girls only with an awesome panel
And Jim Collins (CEO of Pictage… had an awesome opening speach… “Dream, Create, Inspire”… I definitely did all three!
And I also cannot let this entry go without mentioning my new favorite LOVES….
your eye open for a whole new look for Andrejka.. I am so excited to
start working on a brand new customized website… just for Andrejka
Photography.. woohoo… thanks Deano and Jay for putting up with all my
am soooo excited to start offering these GORGEOUS BOOKS… Seriously..
.I have seen nothing like these… I am in LOVE… (is it sad… I’m in
love with a book)… but wait till you see them!! Imagine the most
beautiful art book from your favorite bookstore… with your favorite
artist… now imagine that book is your life!! Dave you rock and thank
you for letting me sit there and drool over your books day after day!!
Okay… just a few pics of the city…
hold on .. I still have one more NOLA entry… of a super cool
lifestyle shoot I did with a dear friend of mine. Just a little peak
into the window of his New Orleans life…
May you all DREAM-CREATE-INSPIRE your own individual passions, truths, and joy!
P.S. next time I am going to shoot more city pics… pathetic… only 3!!
