My Presentation: "Life As A Full-Time Photographer... Is It For You?"

Do you have what it takes “go pro?" Find out in this highly-engaging presentation at the Out Of Chicago Winter Conference. I'll be using stories from my years of experience to teach you important lessons about photography as a business. The photography business is a very personal, emotional and immersive world… but it’s still a business. That means you need to possess not only the creative spark and energy, but also those strong business fundamentals that “connect the dots” and put you on the path to success.
