It was so surreal! He told me they talk about me at the magazine, and how lucky I am I get to travel so much (I feel the same way!). He gave me a lot of one-on-one advice on photography and types of cameras. I made some new photography friends too. It was an amazing time. I even joined them for lunch at a very neat BBQ place.
When meeting Griff Smith, photography editor at Texas Highways he gave a talk on his photography exhibit. It was filmed for a video on the exhibit. I loved it! (Even though I had been to many of the places myself.) :p
We were allowed to ask questions, and it was a good time. Only 4-5 other people were there so it was kind of like friends just hanging out talking about photography. I did learn a lot about submitting photos to magazines though. Will have to keep that info tucked into my notes. :)
