Are you ready for CES 2018?

Are you ready for CES 2018?

Are you ready for CES 2018 which starts January 9th – 12th. Taking up the entire Las Vegas Convention Center, The Sands and Venetian Convention Center and a huge chunk of Aria. There will be a lot of walking. Are you ready? I’ve written up a few hints as someone who lives in Las Vegas.

Transportation

One, the Las Vegas Monorail is your friend. Yes, Lyft and Uber are nice, Taxi’s are expensive but the Monorail is the easiest way to get from the strip to the convention center. Now the monorail will not get you to the Aria, but it is an easy walk through the MGM across the Boulevard through Park MGM to Aria. Of course, there are lots of shuttle buses too, but be prepared to wait in line a long time. Now for the Venetian/Sands, the Monorail stops at Harrah’s which is down the strip away but it is still an easy walk. You get it yet, LOTS of walking. Even taking alternative transportation.

Shoes

Shoes, at least two pair of good walking shoes. Why two, one for walking the trade show and one for walking the strip when you are done. Because if you are staying on the strip you know you are going to go cruise the strip. Make sure the shoes are broken in but not broke down. Brand new shoes can easily rub your feet raw and cause blisters. So, a couple of socks per day and good shoes and you are half ready.

Brand Zealots

Brand Zealots

Inspired by an introduction to an article by Kim Leitzes on changing social media campaigns in China. I was inspired to look a bit what is common measuring stick of consumer brand followers. I wondered what is a true brand follower, a person who will sleep in line over night for a new phone, or someone who only tells their closes allies about you. Maybe not even their brothers, sisters are best friends. Not because they don’t want you to have the same experience, but because they want no added interference in their experience. When I thought about that it became clear their are brand “fanboi’s” and brand zealots. I think if entrepreneurs and small business people stepped outside of their comfort zones and tried to achieve these bench marks they would not only have more success, but a sense of pleasure since they would be helping friends and not numbers.

Notes From A Rodeo Photographer

Notes From A Rodeo Photographer:

Notes From A Rodeo Photographer:  Being a rodeo photographer isn’t about just showing up with a nice camera or being able to edit photo’s on your iPhone. Knowing the events and understanding the arena helps to capture the moments. Knowing the lighting helps make the shots “pop.” Now from shooting from broad daylight in the Texas Panhandle to shooting at dusk with rain clouds building in the Southern Colorado Mountains, you have to understand how to light. Now I personally use Alien Bee from Paul C. Buff, because, well I can’t afford anything else and I got mine cheap from another photographer Kent Kerschner the FotoCowboy. When I first started I shot with a first generation Canon Digital Rebel the 300D with kit lenses and a 75-300mm. Now I shoot with a Canon 6D with a Tamron 70-200mm f/2.8 which gives me better control and more depth of function. When you add quality equipment body, lenses and lights and work hard at your craft you should be able to capture good pictures that show the action of all athletes in the arena.

Matt Pugh, the producer of the Kenny Pugh Memorial Bullriding put his best effort in not only producing an outstanding event but also in trying to ride one of the rankest bulls in the pen.
