If you are looking to supplement the portrait income in your studio or add revenue in the slow season, volume sports may be a part of the solution. This market is much different than traditional custom portraiture, however. From product offerings to sales methods, volume photography carries a style of its own. Join David Grupa, M.Photog.Cr., CPP of David Grupa Sports as he talks about the checklist of things he needed to learn and prepare for in order to add this fun and profitable niche to his portrait studio lineup.

He is a member of the Minnesota and Twin Cities PPA Affiliates and works with PPA's Council as well as PPA Charities. Together, with his wife Kirsten, he owns and operates Grupa Portrait Studio, where they specialize in high school seniors, family portraits, and sports team photography.
