The question I’ve been asked most since returning from Showit United one week ago has been a variation on, “so where were you anyway?” It would be so easy to just repeat the name of the conference, add a small sentence about it being for photographers, and move on. But that wouldn’t be the whole truth.
What I expected from Showit United was high quality education, and a chance to practice and grow as a photographer. That was definitely true. It was a place for learning and growth. I took pages and pages of notes. BUT but it was also so much more!! It was filled with love and support and a huge desire to be better as people not just as photographers. And while it isn’t technically a Christian conference Christ’s love filled the keynote speakers, and in turn they poured their love onto us. There were authentic conversations, lots of hope and joy, and of course lots of hugs!!
Overall I feel blessed to have attended this conference, and I had a ton of fun. Ironically, I didn’t bring my professional camera with me to any of the events. But I hope you enjoy some of my cell phone pictures!!
Thank you again to Todd Watson, and all of the speakers, who made Showit United 2017 possible! It was an incredible conference, and I can not wait until next year!
