I won’t lie, I always questioned “Community Over Competition.” I knew what it was supposed to mean, but I didn’t fully understand how it could work. How could people in the exact same industry — literally direct competitors — raise one another up in business? And while I had ideas of what it might look like, it didn’t all fully click until I was in a room with 300 other photographers, feeling inspired, supported, and motivated by my industry peers.
ShowIt United, unlike any other conference, allowed me to shift my view point and realize that when one of us wins, our whole industry wins. Your competition books a wedding? Great, when they get another inquiry for that date, they can refer it to you. WIN. Your friend is able to raise their prices? Sweet, the value of the industry rises. WIN.
United is a conference that fully embraces the culture of Community Over Competition, providing value to every single photographer that attends. Along with this culture they have created, they also bring some of the best speakers in the industry including Jasmine Star, Katelyn James, Amy and Jordan, and SO many more! All this being said, you better believe I bought my 2018 ticket when Todd announced a one-day registration sale.
Although that sale is over, when they reopen registration, I hope you take the opportunity to purchase and attend my favorite photography conference to date! Will I see you in Tempe next November? Let me know! 🙂
HUGE thank you to Cassia Karin for all these amazing images from the conference! 🙂
