But aside from defning basic lighting concepts and principles, you'll learn how to apply them – what every good photographer needs to consider at each shoot, how lighting affects posing, understanding lighting and facial analysis in your portraits.

Course #MD04
Pam Long

Are you ready to lose the fear of selling in-person to your clients? Does it scare you when your phone rings? Do you worry that your potential clients may ask you something and you don't have answer?

Sales in not a nasty word; it's a process in which we guide our clients to get what they need and want. Sales does not mean that you have to be a hard-sell, dishonest and pushy person that uses trickery. Do your clients a favor and learn how to easily guide them through their photographic experience that includes a pleasant sales session.

Pam will discuss how the 'selling' process begins prior to the phone call. You'll engage in role-playing potential phone calls, consultations and 'sales' sessions. She will share some real-life experiences and how she creates a positive experience for her clients that builds trust. She will share tips and suggestions to help you become successful at in-person sales!

You'll go through a sales session as if the client is sitting right there with us! You'll also watch her workflow as she prepares for the sale as well as what happens after the sale is complete. ProSelect is loaded with amazing tools and Pam will walk you through many of them.

You won't want to miss this opportunity to fine tune your client interactions while creating an amazing business workflow system that WORKS!

Mike Busada, M.Photog., CPP

Get ready to enjoy the day while creating portraits on the beach, on Mike's farm and in his studio. You'll use natural light, off-camera flash, strobes, ring lights and a variety of modifiers while posing each other!

Yes, that's right, you'll be posing and lighting one another! You'll learn the art of communicating with your clients as well as the techniques of proper posing and lighting. Not only will you see it through the eyes of the photographer, but through the eyes of a client. By being on both sides of the camera, you'll retain more and go home with tips and tricks to create amazing portraits that sell!

The last portion of the day will be spent going through an in-person sales session using ProSelect. We will walk you through the workflow we use to prep for the sales session using images created during class. You'll be shown many benefits of ProSelect, e.g. import client's walls to show true portrait sizes, create templates, turn your Photoshop templates into ProSelect templates and many more helpful tools.

By the end of this information packed day, you'll learn how to better relate to, and work with, your clients. You'll get hands-on experience with proven lighting techniques in both the studio and outdoor locations and, you'll learn how to process and profitably present your images to your clients after the session.
