The #1 Original School & Sports Photography Boot Camp
Nashville, TN - July 9-13, 2019
Two Great Workshops to help make 2019 your BEST Business year EVER!

If you’ve been wanting to start (or grow) a School, Sports or Childcare Center / Preschool photography component to your business, this is an event you don’t want to miss.  Our program is the most popular because it features both classroom and hands-on learning experiences, with plenty of time for in-depth questions and answers. There’s far more detailed and hands-on training here than is possible in any shorter 1-2 day program.

Attendees leave with a 100+ page workbook full for valuable information including lighting and technical diagrams. Best of all, every student completing the course will receive a “Certificate of Training” showing you’ve completed the 32+ hour curriculum covering the best practices of the industry. This proof of training can be especially helpful to include with your proposals for new business accounts. Here’s just part of what you’ll learn:

  • Effective ways to find new accounts and how to make winning presentations.
  • Secrets to beating larger Regional and National competitors for the business.
  • How to profitably price your work and what packages to offer.
  • How to handle requests for Rebates and Commissions without breaking the bank.
  • How to effectively schedule picture days to minimize Staff & equipment needs.
  • What camera equipment, lighting and backgrounds will you need.
  • Mobile Studio setups, lighting diagrams and speed-posing techniques.
  • Best Practices for automating your workflow – including barcode systems.
  • Practice shooting with LIVE models and tethered capture systems.
  • Tips on hiring & compensating part-time, seasonal and freelance help.
