Striving for excellence in your photography work and showing the world the results.
Being a professional photographer isn’t necessarily about being paid, it’s about the mindset and attitude that makes excellence your consistent goal, as well as the habits and process that are required for you to achieve it. When you understand and practice what is necessary, achieving excellence is not an occasional result; it becomes something you expect of yourself based on the confidence you bring to your work and process.
And when excellence is achieved it also demands to be seen. The truth is many photographers like taking photos more than dealing with them afterwards, and the unfortunate result is many wonderful and interesting photos never see the light of day. Instagram is fine, but did you buy a 24-megapixel camera to show your work only a couple of inches big?
With the development of any skill and creative pursuit there is always the factor of not knowing what you don’t know. This webinar is designed to help photographers of all levels, learn the steps and skills necessary to bring their work to fruition and out into the world. Using Adobe Lightroom, we will focus on preparation, execution, editing and delivery, as well as the tools to help you perform those things as efficiently and effectively as possible. There are many different and rewarding ways available to deliver and show your work, including getting paid for it.
We will talk about where those best places to put your work might be and give you the resources to help you do it. This isn’t just about taking your work to the next level; it’s also about showing the world what you can do.
