The Secrets to Success When Turning Pro

Merely owning a camera does not make one a photographer any more than owning a pencil makes one a poet. A successful career in professional photography is built upon a foundation of lighting, posing and sound business practices.

If you are new to professional photography, or if you are considering portrait or wedding photography as a career, then this class is where it all begins.

If you have been in business for a while but you are finding it hard to make it all work, do not miss this class!

This class will open your eyes, heart and mind to building your career by design rather than by default.
Steve Kozak, Instructor

Steve has helped countless numbers of photographers turn their passion into a profession and their photography into profits. With this class, you will gain a wealth of knowledge and a unique insight into creating images at a professional level and how to price and sell your work so that you can keep on doing what you love.

Inspired by Flower Photography
Jackie Kramer, Instructor

Artistic Floral Photography

Elevate your floral images to works of art as you embark on a journey of discovery in the garden (Dallas Arboretum) with Jackie, as well as indoor sessions, and finally in the post-processing stage. We will begin by identifying interesting subjects, paying close attention to their surroundings and light.

Making the most of lines, colors, and composition, you will learn to bring out the character in the flowers by modifying available light and/or enhancing it to create pleasing effects. We will also focus on technical issues such as depth of field, lens choice, and vantage point. Lensbaby optics will be available for those interested in experimenting with bending the light with the Sweet optics or an ethereal glow with the Velvets.
