Our team of Photo Weekend instructors have been criss-crossing the country since January. From Albany to Sacramento and many places in between, they have inspired, taught and laughed with hundreds of photographers. Well, this last weekend in Billings, MT was no exception! And since this was the only Photo Weekend of 2012 in our home state of Montana, we rolled out the red carpet a bit further with a couple bonus offerings.
On Friday night, RMSP co-owner/founder Neil Chaput de Saintonge offered the Billings community a free lecture on photography equipment and techniques for achieving sharper focus in your images. Our RMSP spy (aka Director of Education Marcy James) attended Neil’s lecture and was on top of it enough to send some photos back to headquarters. Looks like Neil had a few interested photographers show up to hear what he had to say!
We extended a special invite to Billings-area High School students who are interested in photography to check out the Weekend and meet with Neil and Marcy. So excited by the number of students that showed up and expressed an interest! Then, the dynamic duo of Neil and Marcy offered complimentary portfolio reviews to anyone interested in working professionally. About 25 photographers took them up on their offer. Sounds like the reviews were great and the networking opportunities were wonderful for everyone!
All in all, we are unbelievably happy with the Billings Photo Weekend and appreciative with every person who shared their weekend with us. HUGE Thank You to the Billings photography community!
