The Secrets To Success 

Steve Kozak
Course Number: 23
Level: Beginning to Intermediate

Merely owning a camera does not make one a photographer any more than owning a pencil makes one a poet. A successful career in professional photography is built upon a foundation of lighting, posing and sound business practices.

What would it mean to you and your family if you could get your photography business operating at a high level of success? If you are new to professional photography, or if you are considering portrait or wedding photography as a career, then this class is where it all begins.

If you have been in business for a while but you are finding it hard to make it all work, do not miss this class! If you are self-taught, chances are good that you really don’t know what it is you don’t know. This class will open your eyes, heart and mind to building your career by design rather than by default.

This class will have you looking at your career from three aspects: The Fundamentals, The Business and The Art of Photography.
