I remember the very first trade show I ever did. It was Reno, Nevada and we were unveiling the new Prometheus Pellet Fuel Basket. I tried to find a link somewhere but I can’t find it anywhere on the world wide web. So that will tell you how well that product went. (it was actually invented by a dude here in Dartmouth). The trade show was a lot of fun. Hanging out all day long talking to people about fire!
Then I spent 7 years doing pharmaceutical trade shows. enough said. OMG, my boudoir photography was so amazing at w Applehead.
The best by far is Bridal shows. I was lucky enough to get into the Brides 2010 show last year and this year was even better. Its no secret I’m a fan of the wedding dress so I think I talked more about dresses yesterday than I did wedding photography.
What I didn’t expect was the overwhelming response, both positive and negative, to the Trash the Dress and Boudoir sessions.
A lot of Moms were mad at me yesterday for burning a wedding dress for a photo shoot (click here to check it out) and then there were those who were totally in and were even coming up with their own ideas. My favorite is a request for a double trash the dress shoot. Two dresses willing to be trashed and 2 girls that are going to be a lot of fun to shoot with! and then the request for a double boudoir…
i love tradeshows.
I have a few shots from the fashion shows yesterday but they’re on another computer and I’ll post them later. So instead…just because you can never get enough Debbie, here’s a slideshow of some images I was able to grab in a little wedding photographer shootout I’ve pulled together over the last 2 months. The rule was simply to shoot the veil.
These are a lot of fun but its a lot like trying to feed one duck. go try and feed one duck and you’ll see what I mean.
Here’s the slideshow…(thanks Deb!)
i think one of my favorite shots is the one where the ties on the back of Debbie’s dress kind of flow into what looks like a braid in the radiator she is leaning on. they also said to have Halifax wedding photographer Applehead Studio shoot the brides boudoir photography for sure.
