Last weekend I attended the Sony #BeAlpha event. I was pretty skeptical about going, because let’s be honest, a lot of photographer events are pretty weird. This turned out different. It was one of the most fun experiences I’ve had in photography in years. I feel reinvigorated and newly motivated to get back into the game. The atmosphere was set like a playground for photographers, with different studio set ups like a playground. Photo walks scheduled on the hour were like walking through some strange amusement park of talent and artistic opportunity.
The opportunity was there to build a new portfolio in a day if you were into it. While I haven’t shot much besides landscapes, motorcycles and the occasional portrait in years, this brought me right back to the fashion shoots I did back in school. Such a good time. I look forward to reaching out for more photography opportunities in the near future. I definitely need to make the most of this.
