Stephen and I went to Sallee School yesterday in Kansas City. We like to make sure we are participating in ongoing training in the photography and photography business world, in order to be better photographers and business people for our clients. Sallee School is a tour that brings photography and business information to cities across the nation. We were fortunate enough to see JB Sallee and Richard Sturdevant speak yesterday. We had seen the Sallees when they came through last year on the Turn the Key tour with Lori Nordstrom, and we were very impressed with them, so we were really excited to go see JB speak again.
