The program will be broken up into 2 segments for Gary’s presentation. Two factors that can help make every photographer more successful, great lighting and great selling.

Part 1: Approaches to great lighting
Lighting does not have to be hard. Gary will show some simple to understand approaches to getting great lighting in studio and outdoors. Including balancing ambient light with off camera flash for a natural non-flashy look. He will also outline the tools he uses to make the job faster and easier.

Part 2: Better Sales through in-person selling
In the second half of Gary’s presentation, he will show us how to get better sales through in-person selling. The right approach, the right pricing strategies, and the right things to say. He will review the selling techniques he uses to average over $3000 per senior.

Key takeaways:
1.  Understand approaches to great lighting both indoor and outdoor.
2.  Overview of tools used to make photography jobs easier.
3.  Understand pricing strategies and techniques for in-person sales.
