Quality, Creativity, & Speed
Course Number: 9
Are you a working photographer or want to have a stronger business? This class will help you face the two big bottlenecks: never enough time or money. Learn to save time and make more money with specific systems you can use daily to boost quality, creativity, and make more money per shoot.
With more competition, it’s more crucial than ever to have a high-end style that blends beautiful and adaptive lighting with emotion and creativity, while also having business savvy. Attract better clients with an eye-grabbing portfolio, create killer marketing images, learn to sell in the right way, and make more money per job.
Whether you photograph families, children, weddings, or high school seniors, you’ll learn to create more powerful photographs with more variety, while actually shooting fewer images, and being ninja-fast in your workflow.
You’ll be given personal challenges and assignments utilizing models, advanced lighting techniques, and continually changing gear, styles, and locations.
You’ll learn my systems for nailing exposure and color (inside, outside, with any gear), as well as making clients look amazing with light – before retouching. You’ll learn my secrets of social dynamics to so you can read people and get strangers to relax on camera. You’ll learn new ways of thinking about posing and directing so no two shoots look the same. And you’ll practice systems of engaging people to pull out and capture someone’s true personality with more powerful and true expressions.
Combing all these systems, you’ll have better images before Photoshop than most people have after. Plus we’ll take those images further with clean and fast retouching methods and workflow – nothing hidden behind the scenes. I’ll make you faster, and your images will have a crisp, expensive commercial look while also being more real and emotionally captivating.
Finally I’ll change the way you think about business by sharing what I call the Psychology of Pricing and Sales. These concepts will help reshape the way you price and sell, so you make more money with more emotionally powerful images.
Regardless of your level, the type of gear you have, or whether you’ve taken my class before, if you’re serious about your portrait photography business, I’ll make you a better, more creative, more confident portrait photographer.
