Tonight I will be meeting some old friends and making new photography connectings at the first Denver SmugMug User Group meeting, affectionately known as a SMUG.
I love reconnecting with buddies to see how their businesses are flourishing, including Chester Bullock of Chester Bullock Photography, Maria Mitchell of Life Clicks Photography and Katie Humphreys, of the dynamic duo Chris Humphreys' destination wedding photography team. Katie and her husband Chris, along with Sara Frances & Karl Arndt, are the leaders of the new Denver SMUG.
Silicon Valley SmugMug User Group (SMUG)
The first Denver SMUG will feature Smugmug's chief marketing guru Jeff Jochum. Jeff will reprise his Igniting Fusion presentation at this month's meeting. Featuring incredible videos videos by Bob Davis, Robert Evans, JVS, Chris MacAskill, The Bebbs and The Bui Brothers, as well as the NEWEST video from Vincent Laforet's SmugMug project in Hawaii - Igniting Fusion was a big hit at this year's Collision Conference, hosted by the LA Film School, a few weeks ago.
Now you can finally put a face to all those strange usernames on the Dgrin Forum. I'm "thenimirra" and I'm looking forward to meeting you.
The First Denver SMUG meeting is:
Wednesday, Nov. 18, 2009 | 7:00-9:30PM
