Hey everyone!
I was going through the Super Monday pdf that is available at www.PPA.com
and I noticed there are a lot of OURPPA members giving classes this November. Please take a moment and check it out! It is a great oppurtunity to spend a day with someone, and it benefits education.

Jeff

Hi David;

I now found Michael Barton's photo but can't find yours. I did find your course outline though. I think the title is "Nuts and Bolts of Figure Studies" ? :D I'm kidding folks .. it's "Nuts and Bolts Wedding Photography".

Everyone check out the image Jeff Dachowski gave for his course ... half a face. I expected half a "star glasses" as well. :p

Given the current craze on here ... for the Super Mondays, next time, we may see a bunch of M&Ms or Homer Simpsons in the brochure. :o

Hi Andie;

When you see me at one of the PPAofPa meetings you can give me a swift kick for missing your name. :o

Hey everyone! I guess I've been slammed with work and haven't had a chance to visit or post in awhile! Look at everything I missed! I guess this place moves quick! That's a good thing. I guess too much work is as well! Show of hands?! Ha.

I just got back from a workshop I gave in Alaska. It's the same one I'm doing for Super Monday. It was 2 days in Alaska, but we'll make it work. The whole deal is to learn to re-evaluate the way we do business. Like I've stolen from somewhere (borrowed?) "How do you sell large prints? . . . Make small ones look bad." Pretty straight forward. It all starts with the first phone call. Most photographers wait until the final order before they make a sale. By then, it's TOO late. You have to sell with the camera and your connections. You do that and you'll have bigger sales and clients for life. The other side of the coin is that there are some really EASY things we can do to dramatically raise our average sale as well as lowering our cost of sale. That's pretty much where the class is coming from.

Commercial over.

The drag is, I can't go to someone else's class! $99?! Are you kidding me? The interesting part is how poorly attended a lot of Super Monday Classes are. Some people don't know a good deal sometimes eh? The other great side is being able to see another photographer's studio. There are a lot of photographers sticking their necks out there on that day and most of them won't see a single penny for doing it. I think it's a important to support them.

Just my thoughts. I'll, uh, work on not being on the road so much! The Wife would appreciate that. . .
