These days, as photographers, our world is seemingly expanding and shrinking all at once and it can be challenging to make a focused statement with commercial photography. Things have shifted, personal meetings are rare, and connecting with prospective clients can be more challenging so we need to show our specialty work now more than ever.
By tailoring our individual approach to a specific client, we can start the conversation quickly and help grab their attention. Photographers have a large digital toolbox that allows the ability to create laser-focused promotions and presentations to help capture the essence of our work and outline our specialties or concepts that may or may not be fully represented on our websites. Photographers should have a virtual portfolio handy or an e-book that best represents who they are and what they do.
Join APA | SD and our esteemed panelists who will be critiquing 3 virtual portfolios, offering their guidance and expertise, and discussing ideas for the best approach to building these tailored digital presentations.
WHEN: August 12, 2020 at 4PM PST
WHERE: Online | Link will be sent out upon registration
COST: Free to APA Members, Non-Members $10
