Photography conferences you need to attend: SYNC
When people who have been to SYNC talk about SYNC they talk about family, because that's what SYNC is. Although the majority of SYNC attendees seem to be a little more than beginners on the experience scale, beginning photographers will surely feel welcome here!
SYNC is the perfect size, not too big where you feel lost, but not too small either, which makes the Trade Show one of the best! Great vendors, who, (because some knuckleheads will go to the beach during the day!) have more time to chat with you here than they might at some other conferences.
People usually start arriving at the resort in Destin, FL a few days before the conference starts. Some to prepare for Jump Start classes and watch print competition, some to escape the likely bitter cold of the last part of winter, and some to just unwind before what they know will be a weekend of learning, friendship, and worship.
Yes, I said worship. Sunday morning. It is NOT mandatory, but I can tell you first hand, there is a feeling inside that room that is indescribable. But, if you know me... you know I'm going to try anyway. Imagine your soul, the soul you thought was full. Then, imagine this group of people you're surrounded by lifting you up, filling you up, while you're lifting them up, filling them up. This past year I sat in the back of the room ugly crying for over 20 minutes, because I just could not believe the overwhelming feeling I was having. I thought I had everything I wanted, everything I needed, but I'm pretty sure my soul was overflowing. I'm not the only one. It is life changing.
I love segues, but you don't get one here. Let's see some highlights of SYNC 2018!
I would be remiss if I didn't mention the, "Hearts of fire award". I was honored to receive this award at this year's 10th SYNC on behalf of So Many Angels, and although I feel we are just getting started, the chance to spread the message about what we do at So Many Angels was priceless. I can't thank SYNC enough for the 10 minutes on stage! Ok... 16 minutes?
Which brings me to Darty and Michele Hines, the masterminds of SYNC and all the people who help put together and run such an awesome event would love to welcome you to the family. If you are a photographer and need to recharge, learn, or just be with more people like you, people who get you, I would highly recommend you make it to Destin, Florida in March of 2019. If you have never attended before, I have access to a super secret special rate, FOR FIRST TIME ATTENDEES that you won't beat anywhere! Shoot me an email if you're interested!
There are plenty of other conferences out there that feed my photography mind... SYNC feeds my soul. See you in Florida in MARCH 2019!
