My weekend at the 2018 Fitposium conference

Wow, looking back at last weekend was pretty awesome! I had a great time in the state of Arizona for the first time to take part of the Fitposium 2018 conference. I enjoyed my time at this conference. It focused on people working or continuing working on their brands within the fitness industry for fitness entrepreneurs. For myself, I was able to get my portfolio reviewed by editors of larger fitness magazines such as Strong Fitness, Fitness magazine from Australia and Oxygen. All of them liked my fitness photography work which made my day.  The conference itself was great with amazing speakers whom I saw on Saturday. I received many tips from them throughout their presentations which benefited my brand. I also saw familiar faces whom I worked with in the past and met new faces as well. It was a great weekend for myself!! On a last note, I want to thank again James Patrick, the founder of Fitposium reaching out to me on this and the conference really benefited me on different levels. Thank you.
