Training - Why go to Seminars

These seminars are arranged as a benefit to you and will definitely help you run your business better. Practicing photographers are happy to share their knowledge and experience to assist you with the complexities of digital imaging and running a photographic business.

The added bonus of coming along to a seminar is that you will network with fellow photographers in your area, 'who knows' when you may need to rely upon someone in your patch for support.
