To start with, I will be a reviewer at Review LA, which is January 14 through January 16 and is held at the Doubletree Guest Suites in Santa Monica. As of this writing, it is sold out but there is a waiting list. Check their site for all of the details.
Across the street from the Doubletree, at the Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Photo LA will be running from January 14 through January 17. I went to the last one and it was fantastic. The amount of black and white work was inspiring.
Each night there are a few things going on but the event I am most excited about is the Photographers Fling, also hosted at the Doubletree on Saturday night from 9pm to midnight. After two days of reviews, this will be a great time to relax with great people and fine drinks.
This is going to be a great weekend.
