Sue Bryce

Consider the fact that marketing to women is different than marketing to men and you'll see why Sue Bryce views this as an ideal opportunity to focus your message. As a glamour photographer, the majority of her clients are women and she shares how she tailors her messaging to suit them. Sue systematically breaks down the different demographics while explaining the types of products each is drawn to.

Anne Geddes

One of the most fascinating elements of an artist is learning how their mind creates and works before they ever pick up the camera. In this video, world-renowned photographer and story-teller, Anne Geddes, shares her creative process and gives a glimpse into her own inspiration. In addition to her aesthetic, Anne speaks about the journeys she's faced throughout her career and the lifetime of stories she has amassed along the way. She discusses how much research and hard work went into each of the six books she has created, while also giving an inside look of her newest work available since April 2017, Small World.

Andy Marcus

Andy Marcus photographs a wedding couple in the lofted garden of a Manhattan skyscraper. He then goes inside to photograph them in silhouette against the NYC skyline. Andy discusses the importance of assistants and how to best utilize them in an effective manner.

Sue Bryce

To be a successful photographer, you must have a firm understanding of sales, pricing, and the products of your business. In this video, Sue Bryce shares her own philosophies and the tried-and-true sales techniques she has learned over the years, including her two favorite products to sell to her clients. Additionally, Sue explains the psychology behind the placement of your middle package to achieve your desired average sale while still keeping your price list simple and clean to improve your overall sales.

Andy Marcus

Andy Marcus photographs a wedding couple in a beautiful European-style memorial garden and then takes them to the waterfront to capture their images against the Jersey skyline. Andy and his assistants demonstrate how to utilize silhouettes and leading lines to create stunning abstract images that will sell. Learn how he uses blurred foreground to create frames within a frame that help give images an artistic flair.

Sue Bryce

As a photographer and business owner, in-person sales can be directly correlated to an increase in your profits. In this video, Sue Bryce explains how the PRINT Movement has restored the value of printed images and empowered photographers to present their art in the way it was intended: in print. Additionally, Sue shares the satisfaction derived from seeing her clients view their images for the first time as a piece of artwork that will last a lifetime.

If you're interested in learning how to use lighting and lighting tools to improve your photographs, then this webinar is for you!
 
Join Tony L. Corbell, Cr.Photog., API as he discusses how you can best use photographic lighting to truly bring out the optimum quality in a portrait session. Light-shaping tools will be discussed as a major contributor to the creative process. With the use of numerous examples and diagrams, Tony will help attendees understand the importance of truly knowing our equipment. Softboxes, beauty dishes, umbrellas are all terms we have become familiar with; what we need to know is WHEN to use each of these tools and, perhaps as important, their exact placement.
