Surviving Photography: A How-to Guide

surviving photograhy

We’re pulling back the curtain on a career in photography and taking an honest look at what it entails.

Stacy Keck and Kevin Roche are San Diego based photographers who shoot everything from tech conferences to flamingoes in Bolivia to weddings in Beverly Hills. 

Join them for a discussion about how to make sense of turning your passion into a career and being successful in different areas of work, and how it ties into overall business.  They’ll open up about what they show on social media vs. the “hustle” and how to balance jobs that pay the bills with ones that feed your passion.  

Doors open 6:30 pm at the San Diego Photo District11717 Sorrento Valley Road San Diego, CA 92121
