Shifting into low gear again, just back in town from photographing the AIEA conference in New Orleans, and the AOTMP annual convention in Orlando. Conference season is in full-swing. We have photographers covering conferences in Hawaii, San Diego, Tulsa, Phoenix, Orlando, and Washington DC in March. Very thankful we have a staff of such quality tradeshow photographers, all of whom have multi-year customers for whom they’ve done work. No real slowdown until August this year, but we do still have a few open dates between now and then. Downtime is spent going through photo shot-lists for upcoming conventions and brain-storming with clients’ marketing departments on what type of conference photography services will best suit them and give them the best return for their budget.
