One of Tom’s trademark touches are to make each shoot look glamorous in any setting. Those who complete his class will learn how to position subjects in all scenes by using pre-visualization techniques. Additionally, how to approach challenging situations such as different height couples, different body types, large families, etc. will be discussed. As everyone knows, pictures do say a thousand words and Tom will explain how to evoke the desired expression which says so much.
Finally, the class will conclude with the business aspect and what tools he personally uses to continually grow his premier studio. He will talk about time management, administrative day-to-day tasks, and how to plan a day for success. However, a large focal point will be about strategic packaging for selling your products (albums, prints, wall canvases, etc.).
From learning to capture the best shots with the best lighting to marketing and branding your business on multiple social media platforms and creating marketing relationships with vendors and clients to generate more business, Tom touches upon every area leaving every topic fully exposed.
