Where do I begin? Today was filled with such different events and people, it’s hard to even describe. So, I’ll just give you the brief highlights and fill you in on more details next week when I’ve returned home and processed it all.
ShowIt Sites meetup led by David Jay with guest speakers Dane Sanders and Jasmine Star. Got to chat with Scott and Adina Hayne, who are some of the greatest people around.
Pictage Women’s Panel with Jules Bianchi and Mary Marantz, with an intro by CEO Jim Collins and a drawing for a free iPad (I got to choose the winner!). What an amazing group of women who came to listen and share… I LOVE creative women pursuing their passion… whatever that passion might be.
After-panel coffee break with Annette Biggers, Colin, Annie, and Ruby… one of those impromptu times that seem unplanned, but really end up being exactly what you need and could only have been planned by the ultimate Creator.
Rockin’ Jam Session with Jerry Ghionis, Jay Lawrence Goldman, Tony Corbell, Mitche Graf, Josh Haftel, and Robert Hughes. Ron (my amazing hubby) was asked to film them to create a music video. So much fun! Jay stole the show and had his bandmates bowing down to his genius on the keyboards.
WPPI 2010 Awards Ceremony with a special appearance by the kids in the boys and girls club that were part of the Pictage charity shoot on Saturday that we filmed. Always so cool to see Ron’s work on the big screen and always impressed with how Jim Collins, CEO of Pictage honors and gives credit to those he works with.
Congrats to the impressive print competition award winners this year, including Louis Pang, Int’l Portrait Print of The Year and Jennifer Hudson for her amazing, quirky prints. And huge congrats to our friend and Orange County photographer Joe Photo who was honored with the humanitarian of the year award!
