Tuesday night Kathryn and I decided to join a group of photographers for a “Shoot Out.” I thought it was supposed to be some serious competition, but it wasn’t what I thought. it was just shooting around with a competitive name. It was so much fun! There were about 9 of us practicing, sharing tips and tricks, and making each other better photographers!
We got the idea from Jasmine Star on her CreativeLive Restart show. She motived us all to get out there and get to know other photographers in the area. Networking and relationships is what the business is all about!
It was great to get to know other photographers in the area. I feel like the relationships you make when you selflessly put your financial goals behind you for the sake of friendships can be immeasurable on a monetary scale. Heather Rickelman did a great job putting everything together and making sure everything went well! Julia Beckmann and Kelly Stewart were some of the first ones there so it was nice getting to know them before everything started! NiCole Lynch, Melinda Jean, Yasmin Leonard & Samantha Laffoon came soon after and it quickly became a cool little community of people sharing our passion and helping to make each other better!
Here are some pictures from the evening!

Below is Kelly & Melinda! They both are awesome photographers!
Here is the whole group, in the back you can see NiCole, she did the best job at taking pictures of everyone in action!
If you haven’t gotten in contact with other photographers in your area, I encourage you to do so! We had such an incredible time and it was a lot of fun!
Until Next Time,
