Upcoming Live Education Opportunities

By Chris Homer

PPA photographers have photography and business learning opportunities, educational programs and best practices through PPAedu and PhotoVision at their fingertips. But there are also a bunch of live webinars coming up in April and May, and these are OPEN TO ALL photographers, no PPA membership required! Check them out below:

April 16, 2015 - 2 pm EST
With Ashley Brooke
Skill Level(s): ALL

The first webinar in the Studio Makeover series is here! This year PPA is working with two lucky studios in all areas of their business, to give them a total "makeover". Follow their progress, challenges and changes. Updates will be posted right here on the blog and you will be able to watch monthly webinar updates to track this year-long process. It's a series worth paying attention to, as there will be strategies and business tactics you can apply to your business too.

With the nature of business changing as rapidly as it is, it's no wonder we consider Social Media our Business BFF. Having grown up in the photography industry, Ashley Brooke knows first-hand what works best and what doesn't! During this webinar, Ashley Brooke will share her tips and tricks for social media and branding, discovered in large part thanks to building a business from the ground up.

April 23, 2015 - 3 pm EST
With Lindsey Forson, PPA's Copyright & Government Affairs Coordinator
Skill Level(s): ALL

Copyright infringement is an important and often complicated issue for professional photographers. This webinar will help you understand what your intellectual property rights are as a photographer, how to protect your images from copyright infringements, and what to do when infringements occur. Join us on World Copyright Day for this webinar, free and open to ALL photographers to help you be more in control of your copyright and be more protected!

April 28, 2015 - 2 pm EST
With Clay Eads
Skill Level(s): ALL

This is a two-part series on outsourcing. In part I, Clay Eads will provide an in-depth look at the process and benefits of outsourcing your post-production workflow. You'll learn when it makes sense to outsource so that you're maximizing your time and finances! Clay will also cover what to expect when working with an editor during the outsourcing process. If you feel overwhelmed with all the tasks you need to accomplish, outsourcing may be a solution for you, so learn the basics during this webinar.
May 12, 2015 - 2 pm EST
With Clay Eads
Skill Level(s): ALL

In part II of this series on outsourcing, you'll take a look at the time management strategies Clay uses in a portrait retouching workflow to stay focused, be efficient and keep images looking consistent. These strategies can be applied to future or current outsourcing relationships as well as photographers' workflow when working solo. After this webinar, you'll gain a better understanding of how you can keep your workflow manageable so that you can spend more time out in the world photographing and less time behind the computer doing retouching work. 

May 19, 2015 - 2 pm EST
With Lindsay Betz
Skill Level(s): ALL

This webinar will reveal the staggering amount of debt and stress under which the majority of businesses operate and provide practical steps to leave this norm and instead run your business on solid, financial ground. Lindsay Betz will share the story of launching her husband-and-wife studio and how they grew it debt-free and continue to run it with these principles, generating consistent six-figure earnings each year.

May 28, 2015 - 2 pm EST
With Angela Lawson, Cr.Photog., CPP
Skill Level(s): Beginner/Intermediate

Pets are an integral part of many families. And often it is not just the family dog! We, as photographers, are often called upon to photograph these special family members. For many photographers, this is a bit of a challenge, as there is a whole new aspect to photographing animals that isn't taught in our photography manuals. Angela will go beyond the technical aspects of photographing cats and other creatures and teach you many helpful tips to working with animals in general, as well as these specific animals.


One of these webinars is sure to help you be more, so sign up today! The live presentations of these webinars are free to all photographers. Those who are with PPA will be able to replay them whenever and however many times they wish after the live recording is done. Consider joining! With your membership, you'll get access to the more than 1,100 PPAedu and PhotoVision programs, available 24/7 online! Get started and join PPA today!
