One of the most exciting benefits for SWPP members will be discounts and the ability to register early for the WPPI and PhotoPlus International Conference & Expo. The conference has gone from strength to strength in recent years, seeing over four and a half thousand people registering for the full experience. In addition this year a new film-making track was introduced that attracted over a thousand film-making students - shooting wedding videos is a hot topic within the industry now, so this would be the perfect opportunity to seek higher education. In total the conference in 2014 attracted 172 world-leading educators, but it didn't just stop there. Over three hundred exhibitors and brands were represented at the trade show, giving professionals the opportunity to see the latest products available on the market and the opportunity to grab a bargain! The event happens at the MGM Grand situated at the heart of everything that Las Vegas has to offer. If it's anything like the annual party at The Societies Conference then it's sure to be a blast! I caught up with Jason Groupp, director of WPPI, and asked him for his thoughts on the partnership. 'We have many SWPP members who join us every year in Las Vegas and they're a great addition to our international base. Both WPPI and SWPP embrace the importance of international presence and I believe our two organisations set the standards for modern wedding and portrait photography.' I also asked him what he thought about the new print competition opportunities for members; 'It's always good to add more challenge! I think that our members each bring something unique and I will enjoy watching the entries!'
Years of Las Vegas! - Dennis Orchard
Many of our members will know Dennis from his involvement in international judging, but would you believe he's been going to the WPPI conferences for the last 15 years? I wanted to know why SWPP members should consider taking the trip to an international conference. 'I asked myself the same question back in 1999!'
