As I find myself doing last minute preparations for my Australian event, I thought I’d leave a quick little blog post to remind everyone what they shouldn’t be missing this week!

1. Tomorrow (August 31st) is the LAST day to register for our Third Annual Images for a Cure event! If you’re already registered, the website will launch with the 2011 participants as soon as I return from Australia next week! You can register by going here: http://www.imagesforacure.com/register. I recommend the Platinum Registration because it helps us keep this little project moving forward, but everyone can participate with the Pink level!

PS – super excited about the new IFAC t-shirts designed by Sweet Tea Junkie! They’re being sold on the STJ website for $20 starting September 1st – and we’re donating nearly 75% of every sale to The BCRF! That’s HUGE!

2. If you haven’t already, you should join my NING network! It’s being transitioned in to the first WeaverWorkshops website, where I’m sharing tips, tricks and how-to’s, as well as chatting live to answer your questions, talk about current events (TMZ and reality tv shows, mainly) or just kill some time in between editing projects! Membership is super affordable ($20 for the year) and will be going up soon to $60, so sign up before that happens!

3. I’m off to Australia for the next week to speak to the AIPP SA (Australian Institute of Professional Photographers in South Australia) about my business! I have a whole day planned of amazing content and can’t wait to meet everyone ‘Down Under’!

For my current clients and new clients, I actually won’t have access to my phone or texts, but I’ll have access to my email while I’m there! We’ll be 13.5 hours ahead of Eastern Timezone, so don’t worry if my response time is super delayed.

I’m pretty excited to check out the Barossa wine country with my bride and groom (Rosie and Jackson – whose wedding I’ll be shooting in Adelaide in January), and see the toilets flush backwards.

Wish me luck – it’s a 22 hour flight :)

For my Australian friends, you can register for the seminar here: http://www.aipp.com.au/imis15/AIPP/Events/Core/Events/eventdetails.aspx?iKey=SA_KW_FRSH&TemplateType=A
