Hi, I wanted to take a minute to pass on some great educational resources that I have found to be invaluable.
I joined the Arizona Professional Photographer's Association the same month that I started my studio. They provide amazing educational workshops, studio tours, and monthly meetings. The members and speakers provide a welcoming atmosphere where everyone shares their "secrets" to help ensure the success of each member. I highly encourage you to check it out. Learn more about the organization by checking out their website at http://www.arizonappa.com/education.html.
By the way, I'm teaching an InDesign workshop on August 22. Sign up now to reserve your spot. http://www.arizonappa.com/education.html#august_22
If you prefer learning in the comfort of your own home, give the PhotoVision DVD's a try. They are filled with information from leading professional photographers across the country. I've learned so much about posing, lighting, marketing, and just about everything else from watching these DVD's. I usually watch the entire DVD within a few days of receiving it and watch particular segments again just before a specific type of session.
Now because of a special sale, anyone can receive PhotoVision's 6 DVDs for just $39 by using the promo code: PVFAN. I look forward to my bi-monthly, 2-hour photo educational fix arriving in my mailbox chocked full of information and inspiration.
If three people order a subscription using the link below, I'll get the 2011 subscription for free. That would be totally cool! Click here to find out more. http://fansof.photovisionvideo.com/Melinda/044350
I'll keep you informed as new educational opportunities approach. Have fun and keep clicking!
