We had a great time at our first virtual roundtable for photographers last week; thanks so much to those of you who joined us! We look forward to the day we can have a good old-fashioned happy hour once again, but in the meantime, we’d love to have more virtual roundtables with you all. If you’d like to join us for our next session on Thursday, April 30 at 6 p.m., you can register here.
