Anyways, I was just so highly tuned to the social dynamics that were going on, and listening to other photogs bitching about the clique, then I found myself defending the clique. Too much drama. The conference costs 450 and it was $100 per night, so it was an expensive thing, and I missed part of boardgame geek. I'm no longer sure it's worth the networking when there's so much drama. On one part, I do have a blast and I met a ton of great people, I get invites to work with awesome photographers in places like Cancun. Is it worth it if it's 80% awesome and 20% bullshit?
I don't know.
