Quick Pic from my Presentation

Just got this picture from Corey McNabb, a Rock Star Wedding Photographer in North Carolina. He grabbed this shot with his point & shoot camera during my presentation at the conference.

I am looking forward to hearing Corey speak at our upcoming Pictage User Group Meeting in Chattanooga on June 7. Thanks Corey!

April Pictage User Group Meeting in Nashville

Our April TN Pictage User Group (PUG) meeting was tonight in Nashville and we had a great time. Mirna Campos was our special guest speaker, joining us from Pictage to demo the Album Design 3.0 application. She did an excellent job and we learned a LOT! Thanks Mirna!

After the meeting, and our usual hour of standing around chatting, a bunch of us headed to the Cheesecake Factory in Green Hills for some dinner. I had the best chicken salad sandwich I think I have ever eaten!

Here's Amber and me...

Our whole group that hung out for dinner...

Mindy & Phil, Danielle, Mirna and me...

I wish Erin had shown her beautiful face here, instead of just her fun pink purse. I am shown here with my slightly sad and kind of amused face...

Joey & Amy and Whitney & Peter

This is such a great group of photographers and I am blessed to know all of you!!! Thanks to everyone else who came to the meeting tonight - we had 25 people - a high attendance for the last several months!

Pictage User Group Meeting, Take Two

I told you that Amber would have better photos to share from the PUG meeting yesterday, and she did not disappoint! Fun times. More on her BLOG.

February Pictage User Group Meeting in Nashville

In the photography world, it is tempting to spend all of your time with your face buried in your computer. I am constantly working on editing images, or blogging (like right now) or viewing art to get inspired, etc. etc. etc. Yesterday I was able to break out of that a little bit and spend some time connecting with other people who love to do what I do - but we actually hung out in person! Brilliant concept!

Nathan & Amber came over from Chattanooga for the Pictage User Group Meeting (PUG) in Nashville last night. We caught some lunch at Judge Beans with J. and Tricia from LiveBooks. They were our guest speakers at the PUG Meeting, and they shared a lot with us about how getting images in front of our clients quickly is a major asset to our businesses. LiveBooks is expanding their website sales into the wedding photograher market, and from what they showed us last night, I think they will be very successful!

Since we were a little chilly, we stopped off at Provence for a hot chocolate (thanks Nathan) and to see some prints on display by our friend John Bamber. They are beautiful prints from some of his travels in France and they are on display and can be purchased at the Provence in Hillsboro Village.

Then we headed to the PUG Meeting, which was wonderful as well. We had several new faces and I was SO glad everyone came out. In addition to our regulars (Peter Carlson, Mindy & Phil Thornton, Joan Evans, Danielle Adams), joining us for the first time were Ray Allen, Dennis Minix, David Wright, Erica Erck, Kelly Lee Flora and Joey & Amy Pippin. Thanks so much to everyone for all of your input during the LiveBooks presentation! It was great to hear your ideas.

We grabbed dinner out together (most of us) after the meeting and then headed our separate ways. I am waiting for Amber to blog some more photos and then I will add photos were taken with a little point and shoot, but she had her big camera out all day long...I know she'll have some great shots to share!
