The Power of Personal Project Photography
Friday, November 12, 2021 - 10:00AM PST

In this session, Chris will take you on a journey to add a twist to your photography. 

Find inspiration, increase your creativity, learn a new skill, get out of a rut, or find an additional revenue stream. Personal Project Photography is an approach for using your skills to expand the way you think about your photography. 

You will discover:

  • The tools to determine the kind of project you could do
  • How to get started
  • How to get past roadblocks
  • Where to find resources
  • How to identify new opportunities
  • What kind of output you will target
  • How to know when you get there

By the end of the session, each participant will have everything they need to plan and carry out an invaluable personal photography project.
