Instructors: Luke EdmonsonAs photographers, we recognize "Craft" as our technical ability and "Art" as our creative capability. So what's keeping you from becoming the photographer you are meant to be? I'd suggest is it's YOU! This class is for all photographers who are “Passionate” about photography and especially those who regularly search for “Inspiration.” Maybe by now, you've come to realize that a professional needs more than “Passion” to succeed. Or maybe you've come to realize that the notion of “Creating” or “Finding” your style is a fallacy and you're ready to start moving in a direction that creates permanent and lasting change. In this webinar we will look at: • Common attributes of highly successful creative people. • The keys to generating consistent results. • Increasing our ability to express ourselves as visual artists
