I jump at every chance I can get to connect and bond with other photographers. But it isn’t always easy to meet up with people who you might consider your “competition” in the industry. I never felt that kind of vibe from the people of Open Source Photo (OSP), an online photography forum that I belong to. Over the weekend, the West Coast edition of OSP got together in Napa for a fun-filled 3 day weekend of shooting, learning and bonding. Although I could only afford to spend one day at the convention, it was truly worth the trip. Everyone has an open attitude towards helping lift each other up creatively and in the business-sense. I am only so lucky to have met such a talented bunch of photographers.
Here are some of my favorite photos from Sunday’s shoot at OSP West.
Joe and I LOVE the photos you took of us. They are amazing! Looking forward to seeing the rest. We will compile and post to our blog with a link to your Web site. Thanks again for everything!
