Super 1 Day States: Oklahoma
PJs & Pixels - Stilettos, Satin Sheets & Hot Shoes
Get ready for a casual learning experience surrounded by comfortable PJs, good coffee and sweet treats with the talented boudoir image creator, Terri Trawick. This is the full day expanded workshop of her popular "Boobs, Boys & Bokeh" program with hands-on lighting, posing and portfolio building.
Terri will start the day's event with best business basics, wonderful client workflow, and girlie gorilla marketing. She will review the top 10 professional rules to help you succeed in this unique arena of portraiture. Terri will also dispel a few "male enhanced" myths that may hinder your happiness and progress. Of course, many of those misconceptions surround the gear we are "told" are needed to produce professional results, so a review of the best bokeh gear from lighting to lenses is included and will probably shock most with the affordability to jump start your business. In any style of photography, light is 90% of the created image and has the greatest impact on the resulting client emotion to the finished print. Terri will guide you to an understanding of quintessential techniques to control the monster of shadows no matter if you are a natural, available or flash shooter. Learn about modifiers that exist everywhere and the ones you have to pay to use.
On the second part of this education party, we will get "between the sheets" and practice with real live models in a real world "No Studio Booty" photo shoot. Bring your camera gear and kick off your bunny slippers so we can up the game with serious trigger time for portfolio building. Terri will demo the top 10 Good, Bad and No-No poses while working through with each and every client regardless of body type. You will walk away confident in your ability to beautifully create photography your clients will love.
Terri encourages you to wear your comfy clothes and bring your favorite morning drink or enjoy some great coffee provided. Boys are welcome to attend but remember this one is female focused. Girl Shooters Rule!

Choosing a Mindset for Profit & Designing for Large Wall Portrait Sales
Heather Beadles, CPP
Any profitable business starts with the owner's mindset.
Join Portrait Artist Heather Beadles as she guides you through the process of choosing a mindset that leads to profitability, and then how that applies to your own portrait photography business.
Heather's experience as a portrait artist for families will prove valuable as she walks you through her process of marketing to the right clients, conducting pre-session consultations, pricing for profitability, and posing for larger wall portrait pieces. She will then walk you through an in-person projection sale, showing you how she leads the client to buy exactly what she has already chosen for them and deals with objections in order to close the sale. As you spend the day in her high-end studio and gallery, you will begin to understand how she creates an incredible client experience from start to finish. You will leave with a list of resources to continue your work in choosing your mindset and applying it to your own portrait business.
