with Bruce Hudson, M.Photog.Cr., Josh Hudson
The word on the street is that professional photography as we have known it is dead! Don’t tell that to Bruce & Josh Hudson from the Seattle area. Their 38-year studio just came off their best year in a decade.
So, what does it take to start, own and operate a successful photography studio in todays marketplace? The Hudsons have identified 9 strategies that have guaranteed their success since 1982. Bruce shares, “The landscape of our business has definitely changed since we left our secure day jobs and went fulltime, but the fundamentals remain the same. Staying focused on those basics plus adding our own Secret Sauce, is how we have weathered economic downturns and the Digital Revolution.”
This all-day workshop in their studio will be fast-paced and extremely comprehensive. The Hudsons will cover their top 9 Strategies where you will learn:
