Buffets and bars and strippers oh my!
Vegas! I'm going to Vegas this week and I'm so excited. I'm not going for a party, or to pretend I'm a stripper, or to get drunk and lose $2000, I'm going for work.
The good news is, is that I LOVE what I do, so it's more like...I'm going for WORK!
There's a massive photography convention, WPPI (wedding and portrait photographers int.) and I've decided that I'm going to spend the money and take myself on a little work vaca to hone my craft. I'm so so beyond excited. There are going to be some amazing photographers there and I can't wait to hear them speak.
I'm staying at the super LUXE Excalibur. You know, the one that looks like a children's play-school castle. It's cheap and cheap is the name of this trip.
I'll also be photographing a local family. They want to shoot around the vegas sign and I'm thinking that's such a cool idea.
Really, the only down side of the trip is that I'll be surrounded with tons of food and alcohol.
I literally have this sinking feeling in my chest just thinking about being around all that opulence and food and crap. I feel like an alcoholic about to walk into a 24/7 booze fest, except replace that analogy with food.
The thing I need to keep telling myself is that I have control over what I do. Bad food makes me feel bad. Not just physically, but more so emotionally. This is a week of positive things. Building my business, networking and meeting and talking to many of my photo heros! Food will not bring me down this week. I just can't let it.
I'll try to blog over this next week and check in with you all on how I'm surviving sin city.
Until then...wish me luck.
