On November 15th, 2016, United Patients Group (UPG), M2M Resource Development Consortium and The University of Utah hosted a summit at the University of Utah in the Grand Ballroom in the Student Union Building to discuss the science behind medicinal cannabis.

This summit event was hosted by Juanita Ramos (M2M) who formed The Utah Association for Responsible Cannabis Legislation and is working closely with Utah lawmakers, like Rep. Gage Froerer, R-Huntsville and Bradley Daw, R – Orem, Utah, who are committed to bringing a more sensible and comprehensive medical cannabis solution to the people of Utah.

My Role

Hired by Juanita and M2M, I was responsible for being the photojournalist for this event. Juanita wanted to give me the opportunity to do my first professional photo shoot and this was the perfect opportunity for me to do a hobby I’ve always dreamed of doing.  After doing the shoot, I also was able to work with my new camera, my future photo shoot process as well as editing.
