    Terry Wier

    Pursuing Who You Were Designed To Be

    What was the event or experience that motivated you to begin photographing? The root of that passion is the key to survival and growth. Your vision is tied to the first photo experience where your inner self said “wow”. Reviving the passion is the key element to success in the future. To explore the concept of vision there are several steps we must look at.

    Your personal vision is the way you see what is there. It is not always the same as what you do for a living. Personal work is the engine that drives your growth and brings better work to you. How to define your vision is essential. We will look at steps to hone and develop your personal vision. This is what will truly set you apart from the competition.

    What does your heart, your inner-self say about life? This is the core of vision. Making beautiful pictures to make lots of money never lasts as a goal. Burn out or images without passion define the collective mediocre middle ground. There are many photographers in each market that fill the 80% of middle ground. Spending your money and time getting better software or equipment will only occupy you for a short while, but never fill the need to for a clear voice and vision. Spending your energy to emulate the standard in your specialty will never get you where you should be. A copy of a great is still always a copy. The world desires an original, not a copy. 

    In this time together we will explore ways to develop the foundation of your vision, to exercise it and refine it.

    Maria Moore

    The Exclusive Senior Model Program

    In this program Maria Moore will share with you in depth information on how to build and maintain a successful senior model program by focusing on the “Senior Model Experience”. A look back into the beginnings, and how she has adjusted her program to overcome issues and adapt to the changing times becoming the biggest and most successful program in her area. There will be a detailed overview of the different aspects of the program, and an in depth description of her pricing and sales approach. She will also address briefly on the looks she offers her seniors, and explain how the classic portrait has become her signature style, which separates her from the masses of new shooters.

    • Camera Ready Studios 14203 Proton Rd. Dallas, TX 75244

    In this program Maria will take you by the hand on how she creates her signature Classic portraits. She will explain set building, lighting for the classic portrait and demonstrate how she directs the model through her signature “posing flow”, to ensure great variety of poses and frames in one session.

    Dwayne Lee

    Guerrilla Marketing for the Professional Photographer

    Marketing is a subject many of us struggle with. We don’t do it well, don’t do it at all, or don’t like doing it. After all, we’re “artists”.

    But, after all, we must do some form of marketing, otherwise, we won’t be in business very long. However, many forms of marketing can be quite expensive and we don’t have the money to do much of it.

    So, in an effort to think outside the box, I have compiled several strategies and ways you can market your business without breaking the bank. And several of these ways are actually quite fun!

    You will come away from this program energized and looking for ways you can market your business in your community.
