AD Vegas....Feb 16th thru the 18th right before WPPI.
WPPI was excited that we are there and are giving everyone who registers for AD a free Tradeshow pass.
Tuesday we will be have an extra day and have teams of mentors taking location trips with attendees that want to go...oh...There will be no extra cost.....AD is all inclusive and we will never nickel and dime you with special " classes"
With the AD format Vegas is going to be the perfect venue to burst the creative restraints
Also, as a thank you for anyone who has been to one of the first 5 After Dark experiences we would like to give $75 off until Nov. 25th
use >ADE< for the discount code.
Thanks everyone for letting us making the After Dark experience a reality.

MAny of the mentors are wired for Vegas. suggestions for the tuesday pre event so far has been the neon sign grave yard, Ghost town, the dessert, and from Peter Holcombe whois going nuts over this is:
> I'd love to organize and mentor an adventure sports pod/location trip. I am thinking rock climbing, slack-lining and mountain biking talent to shoot with. I think I can get this together in time. Let me know if this of interest and I'll start calling in favors from my friends in the outdoor adventure world.

From Travis Gugelman:

HELP WANTED
As many of you know 5 AD mentors went to Ecuador to use our talents to bless the many children living in orphanages. Well, WHCC has stepped up in a big way and is going to make image boxes for all the girls at the girls orphanage and I am sending them down and these girls will all have a personalized image box on Christmas morning!!!!
We will be putting wallets and 4x6's as well so the girls can trade them with the other girls who they have lived with most of their lives.
I thought it would be fun to also put in some little necklaces and small jewelry for these girls. They do not need to be expensive....actually better if they are not.
But we are making 30 boxes and would love some help in filling these boxes!!!
Please post if you are interested!!!

And THANKS After Dark for helping in earning over $10,000 dollars this year to go 100% to this great cause!!!!
Please help us pay it forward.




We will be filling 2 suitcases with the boxes and sending them with a couple that is heading down on December 20th this way we are certain they will get there vs' using the mail.

Not many people I know will give as much as Travis to things he really believes in. At orientation in New Orleans Trvis made the mistake of saying for $1000 donated to the orphanage, he would shave his head. 5 mins. later Dan Rowe had a shaver and Jen was living her dream as a Beauty scholl drop out.

One of the sessions will be Kathy Holcombe going in on sales! Kathy has become a favorite in New Orleans and Portland because of her knowledge and delivery of sales and marketing expertise. Kathy’s thoughts for the evening are:
“ Maximizing the sale of portraiture and wedding photography is an art form that takes skill and craftsmanship that begins long before the shutter ever opens, and includes many factors. This intensive, two hour bonus pod will walk you through the entire sales process including selecting which products to offer, pricing them and presenting them to your clients in an irresistible way, planning the session with your clients to maximize the sale, and finally closing the deal using ProSelect in the sales theater. Bring your price list and get ready to maximize your wedding and portrait sales!”

Travis Gugelman - charty!
Another session will be Travis Gugelman sharing his thoughts on charity and how he incorporates sharing his good fortune with the people around him.

good day to everyone. Got to be excited, it is suppose to get up to 18 degrees today! After Dark is doing a complete web site make over and we would like to ask a favor of everyone that has attended an after Dark event. We are looking for a 60 secs video clip on what you think After Dark is, your thoughts and anything after dark has done for you. Please up load to:
https://public.me.com/afterdarkedu in the next couple days if you can. (hit the up arrow on the title bar to upload)
Many thanks to every one...

Just a note on the schedule:
Tuesday 15th - bonus day - random Location sessions / Bonus pods at night if you are staying at the hotel
Weds - Orientation 10:30 am / 1:30 to 2 am we rock
Thurs...10 am - 2 am full day --
Fri... 10 am - 2 am ...full day

We are changing the evening orientation to Weds morning so we can get a whole day of work in......Also, Friday will be scheduled all day into the evening. We think this is going to give us an extra 5 hours of education to present and not have a half day unstructured.
thanks
