As some of you know, each year at WPPI, I put together photoshoots. We started this in 2009 at the Neon Boneyard. You can read the blog post from my experience at WPPI that year and some photos from that shoot here. We have grown our shoots bigger and better each year, making them more elaborate by adding more models and more fashion. Las Vegas is the perfect backdrop for these shoots, because not many people have the opportunity to shoot at these location, so WPPI brings you here and we bring these shoots to you!
We have also added more sponsors. What does that mean? More goodies for you of course! All we ask from our sponsors is that they provide a giveaway or discount to our attendees. All of our sponsors are professionals we respect and have products we endorse.
What shoots do we have this year you ask:
We invite you to the wedding of Adriana Billings and Spencer Bradley on February 20th, 2012 at 10am
Faux wedding shoot at the Stirling Club in Las Vegas.
Join us as we walk through getting ready, ceremony, couples photos, mini reception detail area and more. If you ever wanted to practice or build your portfolio with an opulent wedding, this is your chance.
From professional models and couture gowns, to real cake ( we will be eating this after) and a candy buffet ( which you can eat when we are done) with loads of details, etc. If you have been wanting to shoot this then this is the shoot to attend! The theme… Modern Opulence , the colors… dark purple, deep reds, and a touch of gold.
The Venue… The Stirling Club Las Vegas!

We are also going back to Nelson Nevada Ghost Town. While we just did this last year there was overwhelming demand for us to go back. This place is HUGE and there are sooo many spots all around this location. I don’t think anyone got to all of them last year. From old barns and cars, to a bus, an old crashed plane, desert fields, and a sprawling mountain backdrop… the shots are endless. You can view my blog post with photos here.
Wednesday February 2012 – 1pm-6:30pm. (meet at MGM Bus Boarding for transportation via BUS)
The great thing (in my opinion) about these shoots, we make sure to have enough models for everyone to break into small groups. I am not a fan of the paparazzi style of shooting, so we try to limit it to 5-6 photogs per model and everyone rotates around. Josh and I check-in with the groups, making sure that everyone is having a good time. We work with each group, walking around to make sure everyone is getting a fair amount of time with each model in each area. We don’t regulate and assign you to groups, but we believe in keeping it small and hope you branch off to meet new people and try new things during these shoots. Our greatest desire is for you to get a chance to shoot for yourself. Step outside of your comfort zone and try some things you have wanted to try but found it too hard to take the risk in the midst of a paying client’s shoot.
The Amazing Sponsors we have on board are each incredible. We appreciate them providing giveaways and/or discounts to attendees of each of our shoots. Please take time to stop by each of their sites or facebook pages and leave them some love.
