SF Photo School Press Release
New Webinar Series: Portraits for Profits
28 Nov 2011 - Portraits for Profits Webinar series has been launched by SF Photo School and sponsored by 6 of the industry’s leading companies including onOne Software, Wex Photographics, Sim2000, Nikon, Foto SF & StroBeam.
This 7 hour online webinar series is aimed at those wishing to start either a part or full-time portrait photography business from home. Presented by Uzair Kharawala, this webinar series covers topics including how to set up a business, what camera & lens to start with, how to build up your marketing muscles for your business, simple yet effective lead generating tips, pricing, promotions, products, setting up a mobile studio, off-camera flash, editing, post-processing, off line & online marketing, websites, blogs, social media and much much more…
This online photography course will teach how to set up a profitable ‘lifestyle portraiture’ photography business without having to invest large sums of money.
Uzair, who has been an ‘Evangelist’ for Nikon for the past 5 years explained as to how this idea came about, “I see many new photographers really struggle with starting their business on the right track and with the correct foundation. They go to seminars & workshops at ridiculously high costs for not much return on their investment. I already run a very popular 2-Day Portraits for Profits workshop at Nikon House and decided to make this into an online training course so those who can’t attend the workshop can benefit from the course content at a very affordable price and without any additional costs of travel, hotels, food, etc. In this webinar series, I will share with the attendees actual marketing campaigns we run for our own business, my shooting & editing workflow, portrait sessions (not with models), what I do for my online activities & promotions. In a nutshell, I will share my 10 years of experience in running our business which has been profitable from Year 1.”
Each webinar is scheduled for 1 hour, and run from 11 Jan 2012 to 1 Feb 2012. The cost of the series is only £125 + VAT and comes with bonuses worth £180, including full version of the award-winning photo studio management software Foto SF. Plus there are some exclusive offers from onOne Software & Sim2000.
Seats are kept extremely limited and served on a first come first served basis. To reserve your place and for more information, visit http://sfphotoschool.com/portraits-for-profits-online-photography-course/.
