This lady looks like a model because she is! She was on duty in a booth at a trade show. As I mentioned in the last couple of posts, I was in Vegas during the week of February 5th, for an annual photography conference and trade show called WPPI. I haven't attended WPPI in a few years because I generally find it to be too hectic and I'm not a huge fan of Las Vegas, but Pat convinced me to go this time and I'm glad I acquiesced, so thanks Pat! The trade show was just as crazy as ever, but I enjoyed it. I always find it to be a great venue for people watching. Photographers tend to be a very stylish demographic -- I had fun seeking out and photographing the real stand outs. All but one of these pictures were taken with my cell phone. Apologies if they look a little crappy! I brought a real camera with me but barely used it. Enjoy these pictures of funky, stylish photographers in their natural habitat!
Meredith, from Brooklyn of course, the hippest place on earth. She's got style! Great hair and I loved her dress!
Head to toe coolness, but those red velvet low boots especially!
Okay so he's not an example of sartorial greatness -- baggy sweatpants and a too-small vest -- but this guy gets five points for expressing his thoughts on his clothes, DIY punk rock style! I happened to be in a sports bar at my hotel when the fourth quarter of the Superbowl went down. If you watched it, you know what happened. I took this at the beginning of the quarter, when Atlanta had a commanding lead. This poor bloke was all excited but by the end of the quarter I'm sure he was tearing his hair out and gnashing his teeth. Oh well, there's always next year, buddy!
Those red velvet boots again! Too cool for school!
This lady's name is Janie and I've misplaced her business card so I can't tell you what her photography studio is called, but I remember she's from the DC area. I love her edgy hair, eyeglasses and that cool jacket!
My good friend Dina's cute shoes, ombré tights and awesome Ted Baker purse (I want it!).
I had to convert this one to black and white because I took it in the worst possible light. This is Erika. I thought she was so cute, I begged her for a photo even in terrible light! Ha ha! She pulls off maternity clothes with panache! (At the end of a long day, she was beautiful, glowing and smiling, and I looked like a dishrag with crazy hair and feet like pancakes.)
For the life of me I can't remember this lady's name, but she's a successful photographer from the DC area and she had SO MUCH SASS! I loved her! We chatted briefly as I waited for the airport shuttle to come and pick me up. She's basically just wearing athletic clothes here, but she has so much attitude, she takes it to another level. Love the hair, too!
