    “Go Home!” for Custom Senior Portraits

    by Fuzzy Duenkel
    Registration starts at 9AM
    Program begins at 10 AM
     

    Fuzzy Duenkel, M.Photog., Cr.

    “Go Home!” for Custom Senior Portraits

    Join Master, Craftsman Photographer Fuzzy Duenkel for an in-depth discussion of how to price, light, photograph, and sell custom, on-location portraits of high school seniors… for creative and financial contentment!

    Fuzzy will show you how to create custom senior portraits that transcend the ordinary. You won’t learn how to do more… you’ll learn how to do better!

    For four to six hours, Fuzzy goes to each senior’s home and anywhere else to just have fun! The result is a powerful collection of images that reflect that senior’s lifestyle, interests and attitude. Fuzzy doesn't try to make images that sell... and that is precisely why they sell!

    Fuzzy is a master at outdoor and indoor lighting techniques similar to those used in the fashion/commercial industry, but scaled down for the photographer who chooses to work without an assistant. Fuzzy’s choices of equipment (to buy or build) are also keys to help rather than hinder creativity.

    f

    Fuzzy purposely photographs about thirty seniors per year in a small, middle income Wisconsin town. However, their average senior sale is very high as a result of the originality of the photography and a pricing system that makes dollars & sense!

    As we all know, an image is worthless unless the client buys it. To that end, Fuzzy’s soft-sell sales techniques pay for his addiction (photography).

    If senior portraits are already part of your business, this seminar is guaranteed to give you a fresh perspective. If you don't do seniors, you may want to start... after you see how much fun it can be!

    Modern Maternity and Newborn Photography. 
     What moms really want!
    by Bree Barber Adams
    Registration starts at 9AM
    Program begins at 10 AM

     

    Bree Barber Adams, CPP

    Modern Maternity and Newborn Photography. 

     What moms really want!

    Why should clients pay $1500 for your package when 15 others are charging $200 for a full disk?

    Newborn photography is THE hot niche at this time. Navigating the “cheap photographer arena” is the main hurdle as this is where the largest flood of new photographers is jumping in; especially when new parents are looking at new expenses and limiting their budgets more.

    Bree will discuss how she separates herself from every newborn photographer in her area including the studio right across the street from her that is 1/3 the price. She will demonstrate newborn posing, lighting and her sales session and her continuing education.


    She will be an open book on her style in maternity photography and how she makes her maternity session a must have for every expectant mother and how she keeps them coming back in a world of other photographers stuck in the shoot and burn weekend warrior world we are surrounded by.

    Bree Adams evolved from a shoot and burn $85 per disk weekend warrior to an established studio and award winning photographer in 18 months specializing in the niche of Newborns and Modern Maternity; her average client going from $85 for a full disk of images to $2100 and taking the print competition arena by storm her first year competing.
