The White Sparrow
This past March In the middle of the move from NY to AZ, I traveled to Dallas, Texas to attend the SSAA 2018 Conference. Heather Benge Events organized vendors and speakers for this amazing event. The two day conference took place at one of the top venues in the US: The White Sparrow in Quinlan, Texas.
Over a 150 attendees shared the excitement of the conference, where the speaker shared topics about styled shoots planning, executing and publication; in addition the speakers shared other topics like brand developing, styling ideas, social media, contracts and more.
My favorite part was the emphasis the speakers put into building a community of vendors, treating everyone with respect and giving credit where credit it’s due.
With the overexcitement of the first day, the attendees enjoyed not only the talks but also the fabulous styled shoots. Here is a sneak peak! Enjoy!
