WPPI or Scott Robert Workshop

I don't know!!! I don't know which one to pick!  I have been seriously stressing out for the past month over which one will be the best investment for my career.  So on one hand, I have WPPI; Wedding & Portrait Photographers International which is a yearly wedding photographers convention.  It's an opportunity to network with other professionals in the industry, attend classes on anything from business and marketing to lighting and portrait techniques, and have a little fun in Vegas while doing it.  It would be amazing to learn from and interact with other photographers who are also growing their business.  I've heard so many great things about it so it would be great to experience it for myself.  WPPI I think is an event every wedding or portrait photographer should experience at least once in their career.

Ok so then I have the Scott Robert Lim workshop.  First before I get into how wonderful it would be to go to his workshop, let me just say that it's being held in Paris.  As in Paris, France not Paris, Texas (no offense to my Texan readers lol)!  Enough said!  A photography workshop in one of the most beautiful places to visit?!!! I so wanna be there!  First off, Scott Robert's reputation proceeds him.  I have never met the guy but I know of his work from his online presence and from others who have met him and taken his workshops.  I've had my eye on him for a long time.  I just love his work and his ability to motivate and inspire has helped me tremendously.  So after reading Mandie Haberman's review of Scott's workshop she had taken in NYC this past fall, I knew it was something I had to experience for myself.  She is not the only one.  Many students who have taken Scott Robert's workshops have claimed to be forever changed from the experience.   Michelle Ng, Marie-Lyssa; the list goes on and on!

So what's a girl to do y'all; help me out!  I can't afford to go to both WPPI and the Scott Robert 's workshop so whichever one I pick has gotta be worth the investment.  I think both would be worth the investment but for now, I'll have to choose one.   Help!

See Beauty...
