I’m signed up and ready to click away! I’ll be heading to my first photography conference this year and I can’t wait! It will be in a city I’ve never visited before (Salt Lake City), so I’m doubly excited about this one.
I came across this conference on Click It Up a Notch and used Courtney’s coupon code to get $50 off my registration. There are over 150 informative sessions and I spent at least two hours today creating my schedule to reserve my seat in the sessions I want to attend. I’ve never been to a conference where you have to sign up for the sessions beforehand, but in a way, I kind of like it. It’s nice to know that my money spent will reserve a seat for me at the conference and I won’t have to stand in a full room of people if I show up a minute… or five… late. Also, the keynote speaker is Elizabeth Gilbert. If you’ve read (or even heard of) Eat, Pray, Love, or Commitment you know she’s a fantastic author. I believe she just wrote a third book, so I’ll be adding that to my list on Goodreads.
Click Away’s tagline is also one that I found really intriguing: “A Celebration of Photography | A Celebration of You”. Sounds awesome, right?! I completely agree that women should celebrate themselves and each other. And as it seems that the majority of attendees at this conference are going to be women, what a wonderful idea to have a big party with women photographers who celebrate one of their passions and themselves!
There are photo walks, special events, a cocktail party and even a 5K at this conference. Like I said. Amazing. 😀 If you’re interested in signing up, make sure to head over and check out all the sessions, speakers (with bios) and events. I’ll be sure to do a full post-conference review!
