If you could study another topic
during your time at WPPI, what class
do you think you would want to see?
Are there any other photographers
or film/photo mediums that you’re
hoping to see at the show?
AB: I had the fortune of being a bridesmaid in
a Jerry Ghionis wedding. It was amazing being
there in Italy and watching him work his magic—
breathtaking, actually. I cried at the slideshow
and I wasn’t even the bride! So I might try and
find him somewhere. I don’t shoot weddings,
but I love watching his vision come to life. I
haven’t had a chance to dive into the schedule
yet and since I am teaching three classes and
have my Maternity/Baby TAOPAN booth at the
expo, I am not sure how much time I will have to
mingle. I love everything about WPPI and I am
beyond grateful that I was invited to teach three
times in one show—truly grateful. Thank you.

WPPI: “Making Wedding Lemonade”
;;;;; ;, ;-;:;; ;.;.
What are some ways that
photographers and filmmakers with a
range of personalities and styles can
apply the lessons that you’ll provide?
MA+TR: Our program is geared toward
photographers who are looking to make the
best of the situation they are in on the wedding
day. Even if you shoot high-end weddings,
quick, creative thinking needs to happen if you
want to produce unique imagery. We utilize
what we are teaching at every wedding. We
are showing how to think out of the box, while
doing things quickly and easily. This is a great
program for anyone new to weddings or looking
to add new life into what they are doing.

WPPI: “Filling a Niche:
Add Fusion Video To Your Photography”
;;;;; ;, ;; ;.;.-; ;.;.
Why do you think combining still and
video is such a growing trend?
CL+IL: Video is definitely an ongoing trend—
your Facebook timeline proves that every day.
People do it because they can do it with tools
they already have. Being a creative in the first
place doesn’t stop when you do video. Once
they get into it and learn how to incorporate
fusion video into their portfolio, it’s a great
way to increase the turnover and make your
clients double happy.

What new lesson are you incorporating
to your presentation this year?
JS: It’s really a reality check. I say that not to
be negative and make anyone feel like they
can’t film for a Fortune 500 company or work
with celebrities—I certainly know it’s possible.
This year, my messaging is focused on getting
back to real life situations; helping filmmakers
in small towns, normal customers, even larger
companies that most other filmmakers never
gave the time of day. The opportunities are
right in front of us.
