WPPI 2019 - Workshop & Photowalk

Jay Cassario Leica wedding photographer

Once again I’ll be heading back to the city that never sleeps for the once a year wedding photography event known as WPPI representing Leica Camera USA. This will be the third consecutive year that I’ll be teaching a workshop followed by a complimentary dinner, but it sold out before I had a chance to really even promote it.

However, due to the workshop filling up so fast, I was asked to fly in a few days early and do a photowalk. Photowalks are a popular thing at WPPI and even though I’ve never attended one myself, I’ll basically be able to run it the way that I feel a photowalk should be run. WPPI will be providing models and we’ll be heading out onto the strip during the last couple hours of light. Just the way I like it.

I don’t know the total headcount yet for the photowalk, but this the first time that I’m promoting it so I would think that there are plenty of spots available. If you’re interested in joining me, you’ll have the opportunity to get your hands on one of the Leica camera/lens combos available free of charge to shoot with as well.

WPPI - Red Rock Canyon Shoot

WPPI 2015

This past week was not only the most frustrating as far as travel is concerned, but the most exciting since I started taking photography seriously just 4 years ago. It ended up being completely different than I had expected, but in the best way possible. I made new friendships, strengthened others, and spent the week trying to wrap my head around just how blessed I am to be doing something I truly love now as a successful career. I made the most of my time in Vegas by meeting with company reps that I've gotten to know and even getting to do a little shooting in the Vegas desert with photographers that I truly admire. Thanks to everyone who made this past week as special as it was, looking forward even more now to this coming year.

Here is a few shots from that epic shoot in the Vegas desert. I had only brought my new Sony A7II and Leica 50mm f/1.4 Summilux lens on the trip, so that is what I shot all of these with. Quickly becoming one of my favorite combos...
