Course #IL01
Kathy Shangraw
Mark Shangraw, M.Photog., CPP

Running a successful studio isn’t just about answering the phone, booking the shoot, taking the pictures or making the final sale. It’s about the entire experience, from the moment your phone first rings to delivery of the final product.

In this workshop, you’ll spend the day with Kathy and Mark Shangraw and discover how this dynamic duo runs a very successful studio. Discover what marketing tactics they use, what they’ve tried and what they won’t repeat again. Explore the sales process, using the projection system, and why this is the tried-and-true method for the Shangraws. Discuss pricing and profits and how the two are integrally linked. Finally, get in on the action as you participate in a live photo shoot.

Expert advice, experienced photographers, live models and all the Q & A you could ask for – what a day!

Course #IL04
Sabina Cavalli

In this workshop, Sabina Cavalli teaches you how to create a “sportrait,” a sports portrait so incredible that clients will do a double-take! This course is your opportunity to stop being average and go for the amazing!

You’ll learn how to set up the perfect lighting and create compositions that truly highlight your clients. Discover the various poses that work best, and how to photograph each sport differently. From lighting ratios to backgrounds, editing and everything in between, you’ll discover how to develop your signature style that will stand out from the rest!

After this class, you won’t have to flip through a magazine to see eye-popping “sportraiture.” It will be right in front of you – and your clients!

Note: This workshop focuses in developing a signature studio lighting method and therefore requires at least a basic working knowledge of studio strobes and light metering devices.
