I decided to not bring my camera this year (except for my Fuji Instax + film camera), which ended up being kind of a weird feeling for me. Yet, I felt a little more free, not being bogged down with equipment, but I did always feel like I was missing something!
Some of the highlights of the week:
Watching the Hangover + Having a Pizza Party with our friends Matt & Spencer & Jeffrey Sharing the love with other photographers at the Red Cart Booth Dancing the night away at Airhorns and Lasers Meeting the uber awesome Red Cart Crew...they are so cool! Seeing our friends over at SHOOT Q and preaching the love we have for them! Having dinner with my AMAZING Marfa Girls - and finding out our next trip is in MOAB, UT! Dancing in Studio 54 with the PG Crew! Morning breakfast in our awesome Mandalay Bay Suite with the A Bryan Photo crew....our teams have officially met....greatness may be in the works!
Here are a list of our AMAZING friends that we caught up with - and some new ones!
