Becoming A Professional Travel Photographer

December 5th and 6th, 2015

Untitled photo

Have you ever wanted to make money with your images as a Travel Photographer? Do you love to travel? Or do you live in a beautiful location but would love to sell your images to a national market? Would you like to receive recognition for your images regionally, nationally and even internationally? Do you want to make money with your photography but not necessarily by shooting people? Do you love nature? Do you want to learn how to shoot more marketable images? If you answered yes to any of these questions, then this workshop is for you!


We will focus specifically on nature and travel photography in this workshop dealing with everything from how to shoot the most marketable images in the field, to how to process them, to how to build up a client base for them, to how to negotiate prices, to getting paid and to using those first few clients to market yourself and get more and more work to grow your career as far as you want to take it.


It is a dream many people share and only a few realize. The market is saturated right now with new photographers coming out of the wood work every day.


However, there is a gaping hole between the multitudes of amateurs and those few that make it as top photographers in today's market. How do you bridge that gap to become one of the recognized and successful professionals that stands out with the magazines, websites, organizations, galleries etc.?


You could spend years trying to figure it all out on your own. Or you can cut to the chase and come take this workshop and learn everything you need to know about the proper protocol, etiquette,guidelines and shortcuts that will put you miles ahead of your competition.


We will discuss all the most popular outlets (as well as some more secret ones) for getting your images out there, published and noticed by the most important people in the market. We will make sure when you try to get your foot in the door, you do so in the best way so that it opens up many doors for you rather than slamming shut that first one. In photography, like so many other fields, first impressions can often make or break you chances in key areas of this vast network.


We will go over everything you need to know to take your photography to the next level. Even if you are not sure where you want to go with it yet, we can help you sort out which avenues are the best for you to investigate to give yourself a jump start into the professional world of photography. If you already have an idea of what you want to do, then you are one step ahead and we will delve right into the next steps you need to take.


Do you already have a portfolio and want to receive a critique on it? Bring it with you and we will go over every aspect of it. Don't have one yet? No worries, you will have an outstanding one by the time this workshop is over as well as all the tools you will need to succeed in this field.


Spaces are limited for this workshop so that each participants gets the individual attention necessary to make this new endeavor a success. This will be an intense workshop and will begin shortly after you sign up as we begin to work and build your portfolio so that upon completion of this workshop, you will be ready to hit the ground running.


Accommodations:


Bunk room style accommodations are provided for all of the participants of this workshop. These accommodations include Friday night and Saturday night.


Breakfast will be provided each morning. There is also a fully equipped kitchen available in the common area for us to use for our other meals as we wish.


What You Will Need:


A desire and determination to succeed as a professional full or part time photographer.


Recommended But Not Required:


I will be working with each individual as soon as you sign up to begin putting together a portfolio designed specifically for your needs. Prior to the workshop, we will discuss items you will need to complete your individual and professional portfolio.


I also recommend bringing your camera. Even though this is a two day very intense classroom presentation, there are some amazing waterfalls nearby that we will plan to visit (weather and time permitting) that just might add those extra needed shots for your portfolio.


If you have a laptop, you might want to bring it along with any collection of images that you have that you would like to consider for your resume, portfolio, website and/or marketing products, all of which we will go over extensively during this workshop.


Final Notes:


This is one of my favorite locations to do a workshop. It is an absolutely beautiful log home nestled in the gorgeous north Georgia mountains. It is inspiring inside and out. We will work all during the day and then sit out by the fire pit at night (weather permitting) as we all share our dreams of where our photography is about to take us.


We will make or expand some wonderful friendships as we all encourage and support each other to reach our goals. Each participant will arrive as budding photographers and leave as professionals on a brand new journey of excitement, adventure and success around each new corner.


Bonus:


The first five participants that RSVP will receive a free copy of a guide that will become your best friend and that will lead you to a limitless number of opportunities which upon completion of this workshop, you will be fully prepared to take advantage of.


I cannot wait to begin this amazing part of the journey with each of you. :)
