Starting Out Right in a Brand New Year

It’s the first day of 2015 and the new year holds great promise and 365 full days to make things happen. Traditionally New Year’s Day is significant for many people, all for a variety of reasons. For me, it also holds a very personal significance as on this day 22 years ago I married the love of my life and took the first steps on a very wonderful journey.

On a professional level, however, I am looking forward to the opportunities that lay ahead this year and I am quite anxious to get started. This year I want to continue my growth as a professional photographer and graphic artist; as well as continue to build a strong foundation for my business.

Early next month I will be attending the Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) Imaging USA Expo in Nashville, Tennessee. This will be my first time attending this event, as I just joined PPA early last year, and I am really eager to see what all it has to offer. The expo features a full slate of notable speakers, and I’ve made some really great selections from the list of programs that I feel will really help me accomplish my goals.

I am also looking forward to the opportunity to meet special program speaker Peter Lik, and hear what insights he has to offer on the world of Landscape Photography. Like is quite possibly the most acclaimed landscape photographer in the world right now, and will lead a special session at Imaging USA. According to Imaging USA’s program information “this high-octane Aussie and Weather Channel’s ‘From the Edge‘ superstar will bring along some of his most well-known images like ‘Ghost’ and ‘One’ and share the stories behind them.”

Already, it’s looking like 2015 will be a great year, filled with fun and adventure. I am ready to dive in and make the most of it!

I’m looking forward to learning more about Peter Lik’s approach to Landscape Photography at PPA’s Imaging USA Expo. Hopefully I’ll gain new insights that I can implement in my approach to shooting landscapes.

“Capturing the true spirit of Mother Nature is always a challenge — it’s what I live
for. Every day is different — her moods are always changing — you never know
what’s going to happen.”
― Peter Lik, Master Photographer
