Tracey Bosworth Pag
Want to profit more from high end work from your studio and create unique pieces? From clothing consultation to capturing the image, Tracy will show you how she sets up to the photographic session that she will use to create fine art for a client. We’ll start with speaking to the client about wardrobe, talk about lighting patterns that Tracy uses to capture the appropriate mood and Tracy’s choices for this particular portrait, you’ll get to see the capture and then she’ll talk about how she’ll finish and present the piece for the client.
Join me as I show you how we turned the Mini-Session framework into our highest revenue source yet. At our studio we are able to book, shoot and edit an entire family session in under 90 minutes and average over $1200 a sale. That's about $800 an HOUR!
I’ve hit the jackpot focusing on offering photography options for tween-agers (9-12 years old). Especially with young ladies as it’s providing me a platform to become their photographer of choice when it comes to their High School Senior portraits. It also leads to family portrait opportunities a parent is always involved with the session or event scheduling, transportation and image ordering . Photographers attending this program will be able to plan and implement these programs, set up marketing strategies, feel confident in the camera room and increase their sales with this very lucrative and unique target market.
Stylized/concept sessions set you apart and give your clients a unique experience. I will be explaining how to create concept sessions for children of all ages, boys and girls, with very little investment. I will also suggest what props and accessories to have on hand and where to find them. Then you will see BTS footage of an actual concept shoot with two totally different looks. I will also go over hair and makeup suggestions for kids, what to do and what NOT to do.
Anticipate the play of every age and how to roll out the perfect (well never perfect but at least anticipated) session when working with all ages of children including cranky teenagers.
In this course we will look how I approach in home lifestyle family sessions. Sometimes photographers are so drawn to lifestyle photography, but don't know how to put the whole picture together. We look at how to draw families out and capture genuine interactions between family members. I believe it's important to have these photos within a context, so we look at how to create a story with a beginning, middle and end, and how to tie it all together.
Bert will go through his principles in working with family groups. His 8 Levels of Group Posing will take the frustration out of working with groups and knowing how to arrange them for balance, design and comfort.
