O.C. Smug Meeting May 2010 – Hanssie Trainor   1 comment

A SMUG is a place where photographers can learn, teach and meet up with other photographers who share the same passion. It’s also how photographers can tell others what’s happening in each others’ world and discover what’s happening in others. SMUGs are a great way to connect with other photographers and add a few weapons to their creative arsenal.

I attended the O.C. Smug meeting in Costa Mesa, CA last night. The speaker was Hanssie Trainor and the topic was on “How To Be ‘YOU-nique’ In Your Business Without Making It All About YOU”. This was a great topic and it was interesting to learn what a photographer could do to stand out from everyone without being arrogant or putting others down. What one says or does in the public eye is a reflection of that person.

Hanssie also recommend a book called “StrengthsFinder” by Tom Hath. It seems like an interesting read and I will make some plans to purchase it.

After the meeting, we went to Avila’s Rancheritos for dinner. Having lunch/dinner with a group of photographers is always fun.
