Register on location, space permitting (contact instructor)
With Phillip Colwart, Cr.Photog., CPP
So you want to sell your photo art? You can generate a buzz for your brand and create additional revenue by marketing and selling your personal photography and we'll show you how! We explore low-cost, grass roots marketing techniques that will help increase your brand recognition and also learn shooting techniques that set apart your art from the pack. Discover ways to exhibit your work and enjoy almost-free advertising that can make you money, too!
We will look at these important elements:
- The Slide Show - explain how certain images were created: unique situations, story-telling, photojournalism, tableaux.
- Lens choice - creating a unique perspective.
- Infrared camera + fish eye lens = killer combination! Above the reach of Uncle Bob.
- Image presentation - framing/matting, canvas, metal prints.
- Finding exhibits: Bar rooms to bathrooms, coffee shops and fitness centers, art exhibits and chambers of commerce. I'll share some of my exhibit installations to help you generate ideas.
- Grass Roots Marketing - Local print media, Facebook, email blasts, web gallery sales, silent auctions, door prizes and more.
- Is Stock Photography dead? We will discuss.
- Print competition and entering your personal work.
Time permitting we will add more topics and presentations, including an audience Q&A!
One of the day's highlights is a photo shoot in Historic Downtown Hammond immediately after the lunch break. We will photograph historic buildings, including the train depot, to demonstrate techniques and give the class an opportunity to create their own images.
