I Love New York!
It’s 1:05 am as I write this—I just got in from my flight from New York, so I’m going to keep this really short (I’m beat), but I couldn’t hit the sack until I thanked all the wonderful people who came out to spend the day with me yesterday at my seminar in New York City.
We had nearly 900 photographers there for the seminar, and we really had a ball. We had some great models, some really funny moments happened (like Brad being freakishly strong), and the Old Spice guy making a guest appearance during the day. Plus, we even made our flight home in time (but that’s the closest I’ve come to missing a flight in a long while).
Of course, the day was not without it’s stress. I’m about to begin one of the sessions when Brad whispers in my ear “Joe McNally is here. He’s sitting in the back.” I could feel the beads of sweat forming on my forehead. (That’s like doing a talk on how to be a movie director, and right before you go on, somebody whispers in your ear “Stephen Spielberg is here.”) Gulp. Thankfully, it happened right before a Lightroom segment of the day, so I knew I was safe for at least a few minutes. ;-)
Anyway, I met so many great people; had some great conversations, and the folks in New York yesterday were incredibly gracious and fun, and I just had to thank you all once again before my head hits the pillow. I always love coming to New York (for anything), but this was particularly a blast, so just “thanks.” Hope to see you all again soon. Goodnight.
P.S. I hope I see you Monday night at 6:00 pm EDT for our FREE live public broadcast of the world premiere of “Another Day With Jay Maisel.” (link)
