Jeff and I are super excited to be working in conjunction with Professional Photographers of America to teach a Super Monday course, this Monday!
What is Super Monday? you ask. Super Monday is a twice yearly event hosted by PPA to further photographic education across the country. Classes are taught locally by approved instructors on various topics, and registration fees go directly to PPA fundraising efforts. Or, as the PPA website describes it:
Join fellow professional photographers for local, peer-to-peer education featuring the topics that interest you – posing and lighting, digital retouching and workflow optimization, sales and marketing strategies, and more! Dozens of studios from coast to coast will open their doors on and around October 15, 2012, as they offer their knowledge and expertise to PPA’s Super Monday attendees.
Online registration is now closed, but attendees may register on-site. Please let us know if you plan to attend, as space is limited. Here’s our course description:
