Whether you’re an aspiring or working professional photographer, there’s a good chance you’re having the same problem: You’re surviving – but not thriving.

Photographer’s THRIVE means to change all that. On March 2, 2014 we’re going to launch a new approach to photographic education. We’re going to focus exclusively on the marketing and business side. We’re going to teach you how to get paid.

For THRIVE you don’t need to bring any camera gear. All you need is a pen, paper and an open mind. We’re going to focus on one thing only – marketing. When the day is over you’ll leave with your very own marketing plan.

You wouldn’t start a journey from Florida to Alaska without a map. Well, how can you market your business without a map? We’re going to help each attendee build a mini marketing plan for their photo business during the conference and we’re going to do it right there – on the spot – together. We’re also going to help you build a news release, tailored to your business, and it will be ready to go right after WPPI.

You’ll learn pricing, negotiating and selling skills. We’ll be role playing – talking about some of the biggest challenges in closing the sale and finding clients. We’ll help you build a stronger arsenal of marketing tools, including social media.

We’re going to give you the tools you need to grow your business.  We will literally spend the day with you, making sure you leave with ideas you can implement immediately upon your return home.

THRIVE only has one goal – to help take your business to the next level with a focus on forward thinking. We want you in a leadership role instead of being reactionary to the economy, technology and your competitors.

This one-day, non-stop program is just before WPPI. We’ll be on stage from 8:30 Sunday morning until 5:00 pm. (Lunch is on your own – the famous In & Out Burger is right across the street as well as other fast food restaurants.) We’re going to work hard and play hard – with a few fun door prizes and a day that focuses on your business!

The Instructors:

As the authors of the best-seller, Going Pro (Random House), Scott Bourne and Skip Cohen are going to share new tactics, anecdotes and real life experiences you can immediately learn and profit from. Their experience working with thousands of photographers each year has given them the insight to help you build a stronger business.
