    Kim Hartz - "Branding 101"

     
    Are you struggling to stay afloat in a sea of photographers all offering the same service, only cheaper? Want to learn how to stand out from the crowd, find your niche and become the go-to photographer everyone raves about? The key to standing apart is building a brand that services and attracts your ideal clients so you can work less and make more! I will cover how to identify and attract your ideal client, how to brand your business to set you and your studio apart so you can avoid the burnout of working 24/7 for the wrong client!

    Bio:
    Hi, I’m Kim Hartz, photographer, entrepreneur, consultant, mentor, speaker, and loving mama to two humans and two fur babies. 

    I help photographers find their niche, build their brand, and create the business of their dreams through my one on one business coaching and photography mentoring packages, workshops and online programs.

    I’ve been in the photography business for seven years and my studio is one of the top performing home studios in the country. This is all down to hard work, the willingness to make changes, and to be on top of the numbers side of my business.

    Print Competition
    Mark McCall
    M. Photog. M. Artist Cr.CPP


    Follow Mark's journey into the often scary world of PPA Print Competition.
    Nothing will increase the level of your work more quickly that competing in print competition. Learn the ins and outs of the competition world and how to get those scores into merit territory.
    Mark's approach turns the 12 Elements of Print Competition on its head! See Mark's version of the 12 Elements and you'll be totally surprised at what Judges react to.
    Learn:
     *One type of image almost always merits. Find out what it is and how to create it. Better yet, learn how to pay for it.
    *Two subjects are usually better than one, find out why.
    *One thing will drive down the score of any competition print. Find out what it is.
    *Learn how to squeeze an extra point or two by paying more close attention to an often
      overlooked area...the mat!!!
    *Learn the difference between the degree plans and how to shoot for each.
    *Storytelling goes a long way. Learn to tell or create a story within your image that can make a
      less-than-perfect image score much higher.
    *Find out what type of paper to use with what type of image.
    *What mounting material?...yes, it makes a difference.
    *Learn about printing, subject matter, where to find inspiration and most importantly, learn what
       the judges are looking for and what they'll ding you for.
