Photography for Life (Superclass) by Michael Turner
Sunday 17 Jan 09:00 - 13:00
People are all different, so why do so many portrait studios treat their clients all the same? Same backgrounds, same poses, same experience. There’s no denying that the conveyor belt approach can be very profitable, but it can also lead to boredom and stagnation for photographers and clients alike.
So what’s the alternative? Michael’s solution is to photograph his family portrait clients outdoors or in their own environment. The extra investment in time and effort is very much appreciated by his clients and the resulting images have more personal value in the long-term.
In this Superclass, Michael will demonstrate his available and low-light portrait techniques and talk about how to attract the right clients, planning the photoshoot, photographing children and families on location and capturing relationships.
If you feel that you owe it to your clients to produce meaningful images that are truly unique to them and their families, then you need to attend this class.
This class is very limited on numbers.
