We are so honored to have Carolyn Edlund of Artsy Shark as a guest instructor for this workshop.  

Build Your Portfolio.  What defines a saleable collection of photographic art? What are the common mistakes that undermine photographers? This presentation will address how to create a thoughtful, compelling portfolio designed to appeal to your chosen audience. Bring your laptop with your best images.  We will be working hands-on with each student to put together their best portfolio.

Know Your Audience.  Successful photographers have a clear concept that appeals to their target audience. We'll help you niche, niche, niche to really understand the psychology of who will buy your artwork and why. This presentation addresses marketing principles, sales triggers, building value, and buyer behavior. Using examples of photographers with strong core concepts, we'll take a look at how this works then apply it to your personal situation and goals. This essential session can be transformative!

Tell Your Story.  Excellent photography is crucial to making sales, but your story is equally important.  Buying art is an emotional decision. As you learn how to best share your passion, your technique and your expertise, you make yourself as the photographer an integral part of every purchase. In this workshop, you will begin to write and hone your own artist story, and understand how to tell it.

Brand Your Business.  Once your portfolio is put together, you'll need to think about branding. This includes your website, your color schemes, your framing, and your booth design if you are doing art shows. Build a memorable brand through consistency and professionalism - we'll show you how.

Create Your Plan.  What vision do you have for yourself as a photographer selling your work? Whaat goals do you have? What are the options, and different marketplaces available, and which will you choose? This part of the workshop will focus on a step-by-step plan for each attendee to move forward after the program is completed.

 Bonus:  Peggy Farren will present:  What do judges look for in competition and for a juried position in an art show?
