Last Friday, I was in Laguna Niguel, California at the Ritz Carlton Hotel to photograph a wonderful event. Kia Motors USA is a sponsor for the event and again, they invited me (and paid me) to photograph the festivities. This is my second year at the conference. I talked a lot. Hugged a lot of familiar and new friends. I realized I'm not "just" a photographer. I'm an ambassador. What an experience - not just a fly on the wall. I engage, tweet, instagram photos, meet the attendees and the vendors, exchange cards, network.

The locale was amazing. I went on several ride and drives up and down PCH (Pacific Coast Highway for you non Californians) with attendees and photographed them with the ocean in the background. Great ocean view from the hotel. I was only there for 1 day this time but I'm so glad I was able to be there.
I love the community - the entrepreneurs, the writers, the bloggers, the influencers, the social media gurus, the companies. I'm so lucky to be part of this. Ok, I'm not just lucky - I work hard at this and I'm proud of myself.
