I went. I saw. I covet so many more things now.

I finally did it! I went to WPPI  Las Vegas. And let me tell you, however overwhelming you think it is, it is so much more than that.

I was so unprepared for the entire event, I though I would get down some words of wisdom for other WPPI Innocents:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

1. This whole pre-boarding of 5 classes business. I found  this inexplicably confusing. Perhaps it is one of those things that once you get it, it is absurdly obvious, something akin to my 12 year old confusion about deodorant—you see, I did not initially understand deodorant to be about a morning routine. I initially understood it to be like a salve that you rolled on after working up a sweat. Stop right now with the judgement! IN my defense my mother was in her hippie-caftan phase and was working on her ‘all children should be free’ theory of parenting. Plus, I had brothers, not sisters. Play me any 10 seconds of any Kiss song— ANY KISS SONG –and I could identify the song name AND album, plus I knew about ditching Andy Gibb for John Lennon which was very advanced for 1983. The point being I was a quick-witted child and I am an equally quick witted adult but there are those things that require a bit of explaining

Fortunately for me, the lovely Lori Fuller explained:

 

“…You can pre-board for five of the platform classes that are included with your registration.  That means you can select five speakers you would like to see and if you pre-board with them, you stand in a separate line and get early admission into the seminar room…. it is a way to ensure you get in to see the speakers you really want to see b/c many of them fill up…even in those conference rooms that hold a couple thousand people.  You are allowed to go to as many classes as you want throughout the conference, not just five.”

 

2. One thing it is important for you to know about me is that I am a strong believer in a skin cair routine that includes a good SPF. WPPI, however, is an exception, as you will only be outside for about 10 minutes a day.Skin Care. Go ahead, scoff, but between the hotel air, the casino smoke, and all the walking your skin will dry out like parchment if your not very careful. I recommend packing Clinique’s Moisture Surge Use it before bed and under your makeup. This is about the only time I think its OK to wear a day moisterizer without SPF, as you will only be outside for about 10 minutes a day

3. http://www.thierryrabotin.com/engl/trad_preserved.html A pair of very, very, very comfortable shoes. I recommend Thierry Rabotin. I’m telling you, the soles are made of tiny pillows sewn by fairies who frolic among the lavender fields in a tiny Italian village that smells of candy and happiness

4. Say it with me: “I would like to thank the universe for inventing Anne Ruthmann. Amen” Now read this please

5. After decades of suffering through those horrific, over sized, bulky, naaaaasty camera bags, the good people of the planet are finally waking up to the fact that women photograph and we want to look fabulous. Bring money to purchase one of Kelly Moore’s indispensable creations. And your welcome.
