Take me back to the desert..
.
Are you someone who's considered attending a photo conference.. but gave up the idea because "big, flashy, loud" isn't your speed?? Interestingly..
.
..you're speaking my language. Eileen and I prefer small groups. Authentic people. Deep conversation. Practical wisdom.
.
Now it's finally time again for ShowitUNITED!! If tickets aren't already sold out, THIS is the single conference that could truly be your. cup. of. tea. (if you like this "intimate brand" of tea as much as we do)! #linkinbio
.
I apologize if I'm too late... registration opened already and always seems to sell out in 24 hours. But in case there's a chance, we TOTALLY encourage you to click over now and just see if your seat is still available.
.
If it is, make the choice to come with us to Arizona! It's our third year teaching here!!! And whether teaching or attending, we wouldn't miss it. But we'll miss you if you aren't there. Go go go! Registration #linkinbio

One shot from this exquisite style shoot, part of a WPPI Photowalk I taught recently.
.
It's awesome I can just squish a couple @sewtrendyaccessories dresses (and this flower crown!) into my carry-on bag.
.
Stylin', stretchy to fit my models on the run, and rocked out here by the beautiful @shaylanay. (Thanks for lying on the dirty Las Vegas pavement for us, Shayla!) ;)
.
See more of this shoot on the Blume blog! #linkinbio
.
settings: 62mm ISO 200, 1/250 @ f/2.8

Remember being a kid? We're not as carefree as we once were, are we? We wear so many hats and carry the world on our shoulders. But...

...never fear! There's hope for us entrepreneurs and business owners. Remember, you're the boss.
.
So you hold the keys to your own destiny! We can choose to change what we're doing and HOW WE DO IT!

Time for #ShutterFest2018! Who's joining @eileen_blume and me in St. Louis?!..
.
I recall teaching at SF #1 several years ago; it started with just a few hundred photographers at a small hotel -- and Sal Cincotta's vision for a hands-on event like no other (props, Sal), where approachable teachers would remain in the trenches beside their students all the time. We are ALL students after all; always will be.
.
The spirit of his idea resonated with us deeply. (We love the relationships made here!) Apparently it resonated with others, too...
.
I'm proud to have watched this movement grow year after year, into the strangely operational behemoth of controlled chaos it is today. It literally has changed the direction of events in our industry. But this -- the original #ShutterFest -- is an experience every photographer should try once.. and will probably return to again and again. See you there soon!

WPPI is AWESOME!
.
Loved meeting you in my Masterclass earlier today, friends! I know we talked a lot about family portraits and highly profitable mini sessions, but I love how that side of our business can fuel another side, too...
.
...like the creative wedding photography that we're all about! A well marketed photo business really can be a beautiful balance, even in a tough market.
.
If you're not part of ComeUnity with @eileen_blume and me, and thousands of other hard-working photographers, we'd love to see you inside. #linkinbio
.
In the meantime, catch me here at WPPI and let's talk! #doubleexposure #community

Night is falling here at #WPPI in Las Vegas.
.
So tell me, photographers...
.
...what is your favorite go-to flash gear to light up the night? Let's talk shop and answer any questions you have during my classes here at the Mandalay Bay resort. Who's going to be there??
.
Got some fun final shots at this vineyard after dark, using two speed lights in a cross pattern to cast shapely, "short" light on both sides of my subjects.

Double tap if you're having an AMAZING time at WPPI in Las Vegas!
.
I feel so grateful today to be teaching for a 5th year at this incredible gathering of photographers from all over the world...
.
If you're one of the artists here -- no matter your level of learning or expertise -- your creativity and hard work inspire me!
.
I seriously want to say a huge "thank you" to @shootproof, whose generosity allows @eileen_blume and me to be here each year.. and whose love for the photo community makes us all better!
.
Onward and upward! Hope to meet you here in Vegas! :D

So.. THIS IS US.
.
No, not the tv drama. (Although you gotta love it, right?!) What I mean is, we're the Blumes, and it's great to meet you! Look out for us...
.
If you're at the #WPPI2018 photo convention in Las Vegas this week, let's hang out! I hope you can get into one of my classes. But if not, just stop me in the hall. ;)
.
Photography truly is a gift -- to get to do what we love for a living, but also the amazing power we have to change the world through our cameras!

Wow! Colder than expected at WPPI in Las Vegas this year.
.
It was actually snowing in the valley when I arrived this week. :O
.
Can't wait to see YOU inside our classes this year. Search "Blume" in your app to find any remaining seats in my Masterclass and Photowalk!
.
Or stop me around the hotel and let's get to know each other! Enjoy these days, friend! :)
