    Web Social Media & SEO for the Photographer (A.M.)  and Build your own light modifier (P.M.)
    by Ray Peeples

    Registration starts at 9AM
    Program begins at 10 AM

    One Speaker, One Day, Two Programs, Great Results! 

    We will spend the day covering two very different topics.  The morning will be filled with thoughts on website design and SEO.   A Hitch Hikers Guide to Web & Social Media for Photographers.  You will learn ways to better your presence in the digital wonderland of the inter-webs.

    After lunch, we will shift gears into ways to make professional photo tools and construct a light modifier to be used on a Speedlight.  This will be a little different type of work shop that will exercise your mind and hands!

    Everyone will have a new tool to try when they leave, both in the digital landscape as well as bending mind and your hands as we craft a light to make better photographs.  We will explore other maker projects to get better photos. (You can build your own light modifier at the seminar with Ray or just learn how and then make it on your own at home. Materials fee of $25 due upon registration if building at the seminar. With the materials fee you will leave with a finished light modifier at the end of class.)

    Ray is a wedding and portrait photographer from Litchfield, New Hampshire and is a dedicated believer to the life as a maker of everything from photos to equipment and
    lifelong learning with a deep desire to understand how all things work.  Our goal will be to debunk and demystify the inter-webs, as well as to introduce the concept of being a “maker” in the millennium world!
