    Bry Cox - "Celebrity Style Imaging"

    PPA Master Photographer • PPA Photographic Craftsman • PPA Certified • Adobe Software Evangelist 

    Making our clients look and feel like celebrities, and adding a more creative and fashion style to our shoots is more crucial than ever. A high-end style that blends creativity and pro techniques is needed for an eye-grabbing portfolio, killer marketing images, and in helping you leave shoots confident that you have stronger images.

    Whether you shoot weddings, high school seniors, or families and children, I’ll help you light better in any environment, make women look great, create more variety while shooting fewer images, and be ninja-fast in your workflow.

    Come spend the day with me in San Antonio where we’ll cover three big areas: lighting, workflow, and high-end sales. We’ll start with lighting systems for perfectly nailing exposure and color balance – inside, on location, and with any brand of gear. We’ll talk about my three secrets to making women look amazing with light, as well as unique and higher-end lighting styles to make you stand out.

    All this means better images going into Photoshop than most people have coming out. And we’ll take those images even further with a clean and fast Adobe workflow in Lightroom and Photoshop. No matter how fast you are, I’ll make you faster. I’ll share tricks for fast culling and retouching so your images have a clean, crisp, expensive commercial look while also being more real and captivating.

    And we’ll cover how to sell these images for more money, how to best present them, and how to overcome common objections like price.
