Professional Photographers of America’s (PPA) Chicks Who Click™, a retreat for women in photography, flies to the Bahamas June 25-27, 2007. And this annual event’s educational value is even more spectacular than its exotic vacation destination, with programs ranging from niche marketing and boutique studios to digital art.

“Chicks Who Click™ is a plethora of passion; this event will surely ignite your creative fire,” notes Sandy Puc’, photographer, PPA Board member, and attendee of Chicks Who Click™ every year since its inception. And the 2007 program lineup will make sure that attendees’ brains are chock full of tips, techniques, and confidence. These seminars in the sand will include instruction on the following:

  • Steps to refresh your studio, photography, and overall attitude
  • Solutions for issues that often paralyze both new business owners and established photographers (niche marketing, how to put yourself in the mind of your client, and how to achieve and maintain the best business image)
  • Characteristics that make “boutique studios” successful
  • Expanded portrait lines, innovative new products, and creative services
  • High-end products that can enhance your business image and fulfill your creative passion
  • Workflow techniques, including interacting with different clients, choosing equipment, and unique posing and lighting techniques
  • How understanding your own strengths and weaknesses will allow you to live your own dreams and take your photography business to the next level
  • How to balance the personal with the professional in the field of professional photography.
  • And live portrait demonstrations on the beach!

With the wealth of wisdom available, there is no doubt that attendees will leave the conference energized, tanned, and full of new ideas. Ann Monteith, former PPA Chairwoman and Chicks Who Click™ speaker, notes, “I know that women's lives have changed because of their involvement in this remarkable conference.”
