Lazers & Blazers

03.03.13

We interrupt our regularly scheduled crescendo of hype for an announcement: 2013 is the last year that a Lazers & Blazers party will descend on WPPI.


Producers Michael Antonia of The Flashdance and Whitney Chamberlin from Our Labor of Love held the first Lazers event to honor the industry—to give hardworking shooters a chance to put down their cameras and be guests for a night.


In the four years since, this no-holds-barred party hosted by photographers, for photographers, has given back to its organizers more than they could have imagined. The generosity of sponsors, the anticipatory support of colleagues, and the culminating energy on the dance floor has filled the Lazers crew with an overwhelming gratitude that words cannot convey.


But an event of this magnitude can get too big for its britches. When that happens, the only thing to do is raise the torch one final time before passing it on. So. This is it. Get your tickets if you haven't already. We're busting ass to make the last Lazers & Blazers the best one yet. We know you're gonna bring it. Because this is your party. It has always been your party.


See you in Vegas.
