Photography as a Second Career Workshop

Photography as a Second Career Workshop

This safari is offered through our partnership with Capital Photography Center.

With careful planning while you keep your day job, you CAN turn your hobby and your love of photography into a lucrative profession. Many people facing retirement, reduced pensions or job layoffs have successfully become full-time or part-time photographers, earning significant income with their photo skills.

This talk given by professional photographer E. David Luria, will explore ways to make a successful transition into photography as a profession, looking at such options as shooting for stock, events, weddings, child portraits, sports, architecture, real estate, restaurants, food, pets, sailboats, landscapes, lawyers nd more.

David will discuss such topics as: how do you get educated in photography? Once you get to be a GOOD photographer, how can you market your skills? How do you set prices for your work? Where can you go for further training in photography while holding down your day job? How do you get published? How do you build a photo portfolio? Who are the potential clients in your own neighborhood and community? Which areas of photography have the greatest income potential? And more.

Participants will also be encouraged to explore areas of photography with which they are NOT familiar as possible options for career work.

There is metered street parking after 6:30pm and there are garages nearby too. Metro is a very good alternative and the Farragut West and Farragut North stations are 1 to 2 blocks away. More info will be in the confirmation letter.
