Every month I put together a special meetup for professional photographers in the Las Vegas area called the PUG (Pictage User Group)! It’s been my labor of love over the last few years – and the PUG’s grown and developed into an amazing group of photographers (and good friends) that have helped elevate the local professional photographer community.
In addition to sharing stories and catching up over drinks, every month we have a different guest speaker or topic of the month. A couple years back I put together a special meeting on “Learning from a Coordinator’s Perspective” where I led a panel featuring local Las Vegas coordination talent. It was a huge learning experience for everyone involved – both on the coordination and photographer side of things – and has been one of the top requests for a repeat talk. This month we’re bringing the topic back which a special new presentation put together by the talented coordination team at Scheme Events on what wedding coordinators (and their brides) really want from photographers. Scheme will be speaking about what they like and dislike while working with photographers before, during and after the wedding planning process. And the presentation will end with a panel of some Vegas’s best local coordinators.
If you’re a photographer in the Vegas area, we’d love to have you! Join us for this meeting and on a monthly basis where we discuss the latest photography and business topics, host guest speakers, and simply have good time with a group of like-minded, awesome people. The meetings are always free, and professional (or aspiring pro) photographers at all levels are welcome! Here’s the deets for our April meeting:
