HOW TO INCORPORATE VIDEO INTO YOUR PORTRAIT SESSIONS
Live Shoot with Rya Duncklee

Class Description:

Have you ever wanted to try to incorporate video into your photo sessions but don’t know where to start? Join Rya on a live demo as she shares her best practices and tips for seamlessly integrating video into your portrait sessions, all while using one camera! Rya will go over some basic gear needed to help you get started, as well as share what techniques work best for creating short video clips while shooting still images.

Mentoring Options (Optional $200 Add On)

Rya would love to spend time with you to discuss any one of the following topics:

Mentoring – One hour where I open up about anything you are curious about or needing more help in. From incorporating video to creating intentional client relations, it’s an open session designed to help you get your questions answered, receive feedback, and mentoring on areas you are feeling stuck on.

BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN KIDS AND TEENS
Tweens – The Overlooked Market

Class Description: Building a Successful Tween Program

As photographers, we see families investing in professional photography for their young children and again as teenagers during their senior year, but what about the awkward middle school years? These are the years where the power of self confidence can truly make a life lasting impact in a young persons life! I will be teaching you how to implement a successful program just for tweens that will make them feel incredibly special while making you stand out as a front leader in this un-tapped market!

Mentoring Options (Optional $200 Add On)
Sarah would love to spend time with you to discuss any one of the following topics:

Mentoring – One hour where I open up about anything you are curious about or needing more help in.
