Our guest speaker tonight is Chris Richman, with her presentation “Value of Personal Project Photography”.
This session presents personal project photography as a powerful tool for taking your photography to another level. Find an additional revenue stream, increase your creativity, learn a new skill, get out of a rut, or find inspiration. In this workshop, you will discover the tools to figure out what kind of project you could do, how to get started, how to get past the roadblocks, where to find resources, how to identify new opportunities, what kind of output you will target, and how to know when you get there.
