    A Night with the Pros:
    Utterly Irreplaceable - Finding and Owning Your Niche Market
    w/ Ara Roselani



    In a world of approximately 4 gagillian photographers, finding and serving your niche market is vital to both your fulfillment as an artist and success as a business.  Join me on an adventure as we discuss embracing what makes you utterly irreplaceable, and using that foundation to mould an exciting, long-term business that serves both you and your perfect client.  Whether you're new to professional photography, or a veteran with a strong business base, I will help empower you to hone your marketing and approach.

    We will talk about:
    • Why you are the only person who can do what you do, and how to capitalize on that
    • Identifying your true target audience
    • Using your marketing material/website/office as an invitation to that target audience
    • Finessing your portfolio, and finding creative ways to show what you want to do, not just what you have done
    • Building a network of kindred spirits for both support and referrals
    • When to take jobs, and when it’s okay to say no
    • Being brave, smart, and good to yourself as you grow
    • Looking ahead to where your art will take you next, and building the support you need to get there


    Ara Roselani has photographed weddings, elopements and landscapes for over 10 years, and has traveled worldwide to document her clients on their adventures. Both her landscapes and wedding photography have won awards, including the Shutterfest Vision Award.  Equally at home in muddy boots and a good pair of heels, she has found her niche with outdoor-lovers, often photographing weddings at waterfalls, National Parks, mountainside bed-and-breakfasts, and other atmospheric locations both indoors and out.  She lives in Portland with her husband and dog, and loves road trips, rock climbing, reading, playing video games, and adventures that make her late for dinner.

    Landscape Photography: 

    The Craft. The Technique. The Art. The Vision

    Doug and Laura Bennet

    During the class, Doug and Laura will share elements of photographic craft and technique essential to landscape photography and to making high quality large landscape prints for high-end sales and for PPA Competition entries. Doug will share techniques to make your imagery communicate more, as well as explore the unconscious psychological factors that make for appealing landscape photography.

      Doug and Laura Bennett 

    Doug Bennett of Colorado Springs, Colorado, has learned that Landscape Photography must demonstrate not only mastery of craft and technique but also a mastery of vision and expression.

    Doug will first share elements of photographic craft and technique essential to landscape photography and to making high quality large landscape prints for high-end sales and for PPA Competition entries. In sharing these techniques, Doug will also discuss the underlying “whys”.

    Then Doug will move to the heart of landscape photography . . . the goal of communicating your emotions and artistic vision in an image.  Ansel Adams had it right when he said, “Photograph not only what you see, but also what you feel.”  Great photography is about making images that connect with viewers making them feel something about the subject.   Doug will share techniques to make your imagery communicate more, as well as explore the unconscious psychological factors that make for appealing landscape photography.

    Doug’s love for landscape photography traces back to his childhood and family sightseeing vacations touring the western U.S. and Canada by car.  These early experiences were further fueled by his father’s subscription to “Arizona Highways” magazine always leaving him in awe with its beautiful scenic images, particularly those of Josef and David Muench.  

    Laura Bennett / PPA Master Photographer Degree/ PPA Photographic Craftsman Degree

    Laura Bennett of Colorado Springs, Colorado has photographed the landscape since 2003 and even photographed weddings for three years. In her photography, Laura has focused on creating images that stir and communicate feelings and emotions.  This led to her success in selling her images commercially for over 13 years and to significant success in PPA Print Competition. 

    Laura received her PPA Master of Photography degree in 2015 and her Photographic Craftsman Degree in 2017.  

    AWARDS:

    • PPA 1st Place Grand Imaging Awards Illustrative Category in 2013
    • PPA Diamond Photographer of the Year in 2014 and 2016 
    • PPA Platinum Photographer of the Year in 2017
    • PPA Gold Photographer of the Year in 2015 
    • PPA Imaging Excellence Award to be awarded Jan 2018
    • “Best of Show” Lone Tree Photography Show 2011 and 2012

    BONUS:  On Thursday Nov. 8, weather permitting, Doug will lead a location shoot, somewhere within a short drive of Portland.  Registrants have to option to join in on the excursion. 

    Caution: If any assistance is sought from Doug, the images produced are not PPA Competition eligible.

    Personal Projects – Why, How… And how to make Money by doing them.

    You got into photography because you liked it. Enjoyed the challenge of creating new images… Then you turned it into a business and photography wasn’t quite as much fun anymore. Marketing, sales, building websites, printing, framing, retouching started to suck the joy right out of your life.

    Personal Projects can get you juiced again and help your business too! Bob will show you how he used these ideas to make photography fun again and earn money while you are at it.

    This is a program of creative ideas and techniques along with simple business marketing. They go hand in hand to help put your business back on track to the joy you first felt before you turned photography into a business

    Bob Coates      928-284-0200     bob@bcphotography.com

    Bob Coates started taking photographs with an SLR borrowed from a friend for a vacation back in 1983. After successfully managing other peoples businesses for 14 years while photographing on the side, Bob decided to follow the quote "Do what you love and you will become a success. In March of 1994 he left the restaurant biz and took the leap to become a professional photographer. Bob Says. “At the time I thought I knew something about photography.... Now that I've studied hard for the last 20 plus years I realize how much more there is to learn. “In this business the variety never ceases to amaze me. One day shooting jewelry in the studio, the next day getting images for a brochure and yet another standing in the middle of the desert waiting for the light to get "just so." The changes in software and digital imaging possibilities continue to inspire me.” Bob has been sharing education programs with photographers from Hawaii to the Caribbean for over 20 years. A PPA Approved juror, Bob has embraced PPA's competition system as a vehicle for growing skills and pushing to new levels of creativity.

    A Night with the Pros:
    The Business of Corporate and Architectural Photography
    w/ Steve Whittaker



    "It’s an art form but it’s also a business."

    The business aspects of commercial and architectural photography encompass many aspects that constantly require attention. Estimating, licensing issues, scouting assignments, creating that shoot list — all are important factors. Once the client signs that contract and pays the 50% retainer, project coordination comes into play. That includes security clearances, site preparation, transportation arrangements, permits, releases and authorization. All of these areas need to be conveyed to the client. This presentation covers all of that and more.



    Topics to be covered include:
    • Estimating, contracts, stock issues
    • Assignment project coordination
    • Permits, release forms, film commissions
    • Risk Management, safety issues 
    • Assignment preparation, scouting
    • Assignment execution / post production
    • Case studies-business, lighting and safety issues
    • Case Studies: assignments / copyright infringement
    • Post-production
    This event is free to all (members and nonmembers) but we do ask that you register using the button on the left.
