  1. Scott, I can’t wait to get started today with PSW15. Breakfast with fellow photographers at Mandalay Bay, then registration, then the amazing Tim Wallace at the Live Car Shoot! I’m here with my son, and a friend of mine, and we’re all super psyched to learn and laugh a lot this week.
    I toured the convention center yesterday and this year’s theme looks “groovy”! :-) If I see you around, I’ll be sure to say “hi!”.
