PRESS RELEASE: Pro Photographer Business Boot Camp offers tools, strategies towards business success
JACKSON, Mich. – PMA – The Worldwide Community of Imaging Associations is offering the Pro Photographer Business Boot Camp, Saturday, February 20, 2010, to provide new professional photographers a fundamental understanding of the four key elements central to business success: marketing, management, techniques, and technology. The seminar, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Southern California, offers tools and strategies to build an ethically and legally sound business, attract and retain new customers, and differentiate your business with improved photography skills and unique product offerings.

The boot camp targets photographers with less than two years of professional experience, particularly those specializing in portraits, weddings, sports, and events. Sessions include “Business Practices 101: How to Stay Out of Trouble”; “Posing and Lighting Basics”; “Photographer’s Legal Guide”; “How I Changed My Website to Grow My Photography Business”; and “Developing New Product Lines.”
Highlighting the day’s schedule is a working luncheon about marketing, presented by Tony Blei, Tony Blei Photography, Mesa, Ariz., and a two-hour tabletop reception, featuring service providers and photofinishing labs.
The daylong event adjoins the PMA 2010 International Convention and Trade Show, Feb. 21-23, 2010, at the Anaheim Convention Center, Southern California, for which the All Conference Connection Pass provides access to sessions, social events, and the trade show floor.
