Upcoming Webinars

Wildlife & Landscape Photography - The Evolution of an Image

Presented by Rick Sammon, Rick Sammon Photography January 8 at 8:00pm EST

In this info-packed and fun-filled webinar, Rick Sammon will talk about the evolution of an image – from envisioning the end-result, making an image and then processing an image. The main concept: there is a big difference between taking a picture and making a picture. Rick will also talk about his “one picture promise.” Rick has traveled to more than 100 countries making pictures for his books and on-line classes. In this webinar Rick will share his favorite wildlife and landscape images from around the world. But this is not just a webinar filled with pretty pictures. For each image Rick will share a tip or technique that hopefully will make you make better pictures – pictures with impact!

Target Audience: Novice to Advanced

Presented by Jaymi Heimbuch, Jaymi Heimbuch Photography LLC, January 30 at 2:00pm EST

Feel daunted when trying to get started on a new project? Or frazzled once a project is underway? With the right tools and preparation at the outset, you can avoid becoming overwhelmed or discouraged and missing important deadlines. We will cover strategies for planning out your tasks for a shoot, assignment, or larger project from start to finish – from outlining deliverables to scheduling work. We will review tools, including templates and online software programs, that help photographers stay organized, and we will cover strategies for keeping priorities in line as they shift during a project.
