PPA May Photography Webinars You Can’t Miss

May 9th, 2017 No comments

PPA_Webinar

PPA always has the latest in photography news and education, and this month there are a few webinars that you just can’t miss! PPAedu webinars are filled with useful information from credible industry experts about the most popular topics in the business.  From creative techniques that make your photos stand out, to how to run a top-notch photography business, we’ve got the webinars for you. And if life calls and you have to miss a scheduled live session, never fear. All live webinars are included in the PPAedu course library.
Here’s a first look at what’s on tap for this month’s webinars!
 
1.) Between Light and Shadow: In this webinar, Tony Corbell will discuss how you can best use photographic lighting to truly bring out the optimum quality in a portrait session. Light-shaping tools will be discussed as a major contributor to the creative process. With the use of numerous examples and diagrams, Tony will help attendees understand the importance of truly knowing our equipment. Softboxes, beauty dish, umbrellas are all terms we have become familiar with. What we need to know is WHEN to use each of these tools and perhaps as important, their exact placement.

2.) Turn New Clients Into Lifelong Clients Before Their First Session!:  Struggling to create a lifelong relationship with your clients? Join instructor Kim Hartz as she discusses how to leverage the goodwill of past clients for powerful referrals. She will also reveal ways to uncover and easily overcome your client’s objections and hesitations so they won’t even consider working with another photographer. Find out the simple-but-powerful additions you can make to your client on-boarding process, creating a lasting impression and an out-of-this-world customer experience, and tips for creating genuine connection with your clients to help build a solid relationship based on mutual respect and trust. You’ll take away all of this information on the secret of how to keep your clients coming back!

3.) Making a Life and Living as a Fine Art Photographer: In this one-hour presentation, acclaimed photographer/artist Thomas Dodd will talk about the importance of influences and intentions, how to market yourself online and off, how to find, approach and work with galleries and other facets of the business of fine-art photography.

RMSP Weekend Intensive

March 1st, 2017 Comments off

RMSP

Join us in Leesburg, March 25 – 26, 2017, and you will learn more than you ever thought possible … in just two days!

 

This Weekend Intensive is designed to strip away all the fluff, and get down to what actually matters when you enroll in a photo course: Becoming a better photographer!

To ensure that you return home on Sunday with skills you can begin to use immediately, your Weekend Intensive learning experience will teach you how to achieve perfect exposure in a variety of situations, how to read and understand your histogram, how to create effective compositions, which lenses are right for different subjects, how to use negative space when composing an image … just to name a few!

Here’s how it works:

After an all-group introduction session on Saturday morning, you decide which track is right for you – Basic or Intermediate – for the first small group session of the weekend. Based on your level of experience and current knowledge base, you will either learn the building blocks of photography or more advanced concepts.

From there, the large group reunites with both instructors to expand upon the morning session with two afternoon sessions on Saturday and one on Sunday morning, covering topics that are applicable to all photographers regardless of skill level.

Breaking into small groups once again, session 5 on Sunday morning allows you to delve deeper into a genre of photography that interests you the most: People or Landscape photography. To cap things off, the group critique session ties together all the topics learned throughout the weekend by giving you the opportunity to see and hear what two professional photographers have to say about one of your images, and offer suggestions on how you might improve.

American Photographic Artists Advocacy Call to Action

Survey about Internet Infringement

Why another survey?

Because the Copyright Office is asking questions and we have an incredible opportunity to provide valuable information about issues facing professional photographers.

Please participate.

This survey is being conducted by the Copyright Alliance.

APA is a member so if you are an APA member, you are part of the Copyright Alliance as well.

From the Copyright Alliance:

Over the last year, the Copyright Office has been conducting a study of the Digital Millennium Copyright Act (DMCA).  (The DMCA is a section of the copyright law that shields internet providers and websites from liability if they take down infringing material from their sites when notified by copyright holders).

The Copyright Alliance has been actively participating in this study to make sure that individual creators like yourself have a voice. 

Last year, APA created a survey to find out what creators’ experiences have been like using the DMCA.

The Copyright Office has request additional information, so we have created a second survey and we are again asking for your help in completing it.

Please complete the Copyright Alliance survey no later than February 17, 2017.

It should take you no longer than 15 minutes to complete.

We need your help to better understand how the DMCA works (and doesn’t) for the creative community and to let the government know so they can keep what works and fix what doesn’t.

Please help us advocate for you by completing the survey.
