The Art is Not Only What We Do, The Art is Also Getting Paid for It

You do not need to be a student of ours to attend!


We have a friend who has earned a terrific living from his photography over time and during the last two years with photographers going out of business weekly his workload has almost doubled. What sets him apart from many of the other photographers is that he knows how to do business. He understands how imagery is used by businesses and how to produce it. He understands "Photographic Thinking", and moreover he understands the discipline of doing business.

This introductory session will give you an idea of what it takes to succeed as a professional photographer. It will help you understand how to structure your life style and creative interests to make a living. Creativity and energy are only the beginning. Entrepreneurial skills are the key. Deciding on your visual niche, developing a passion for it, and discovering who might pay. How do you approach these tasks?
