WHAT'S COVERED?

The workshop is taught by Dan O'Day and Samm Blake. Over the three days we will be covering the following items :

 

Putting your best content forward

Overall presentation of your work, from your website and blog to what you showcase on social media

 

Finding YOU in your brand and what you offer

Learning to clients on the same page (that can afford your rates)

 

Looking at your work more objectively

Mistakes that we so easily make when we become too emotionally attached to our own work

 

Identifying the weaknesses in our work

We will be discussing common problem areas – from lens selection, bad lighting and selecting the right images to keep in the final product

 

Finding a strong and consistent editing look to complete your photographs

We both strongly believe that regardless of editing, if your work is good, your work is good – however, if there can be a unique succinct “layer” applied throughout your product, it will always present its self with more strength.

 

Understanding how other people are perceiving your work

Is your portfolio attracting the clients that you want to work with? Is it representing the best of you and what it is your offer, not just in the photos you take but the personality behind them – is it obvious?

 

Building a strong price list

Both Dan and Samm will run your thought their pricing strategies and what steps they have taking to get the prices charge.

The will also be helping attendees with their own pricing strategies and suggesting improvements where necessary (relative to your market)

 

Managing client meetings and client expectations

We will go through live client meeting and show you how we conduct ourselves in the initial stage of a meetup.

Every step from booking a client to order fulfillment

 

Displaying and sharing your images
