Adilfa Ford

"Photographing Families Great and Small"

Can you leap over tall buildings in a single bound, stop a locomotive with your bare hands, or run faster than a speeding bullet? No? Neither can I. But I can work with a crying child, deal with teenagers with attitude, and reassure an grouchy grandparent while posing a family of 30 people half of them under 10 years old in 15 minutes or less. In this business that's a superpower worth having. 

In this new world of " Everyone has a camera," I am a professional photographer. Large family photographers are still in a class of their own. Most of my lower priced competition either can't or won't photograph large families leaving this very lucrative market to a very few. 

Adilfa Ford of Don Polo Photography has been successfully working this market for over 20 years photographing routinely families of 50 and 60 people. In this program she will talk about marketing, booking, posing, selling, retouching, and printing. Everything you ever wanted to know about family portrait photography in one program. Okay, maybe not everything but at least enough to get you going and hopefully help you to make more money. 

Adilfa and her husband Russ are the owners of Don Polo Photography and make 100 percent of their family income in photography. They are both past presidents of the Intermountain Professional Photographers Association, CPP, Photographic Craftsmen, and National Award recipients. Adilfa is also a Master Photographer and Silver Photographer of the year award winner at Imaging USA for the past three years.
