    In today's tough photographic market, you need to stay current in both photography and business.  Join Jeff as he guides you through getting your images correctly lit and posed in camera so you can spend more time marketing your business, watching your family grow up or hiking through the Amazon...your choice!!

     Jeff will cover several easy to master lighting techniques and posing concepts that will help you execute the vision you have for your clients and further discuss how you can photograph and sell sessions on the same visit, saving your clients another trip to your studio.

     It doesn't end in the camera room though....in reality we measure a large part of our successes on how we do in the sales room.  Jeff will spend half of his time with you discussing sales techniques to move the client into the process quickly and allow them to be invested in the process.  He will discuss image selection, handling objections, asking for the sale, and most importantly, asking for
    the payment!
