Bill Whitmire is a successful commercial and advertising photographer based out of Portland.

Some of his other talking points will include: 

• The importance of identifying what you want so you can make a plan. 

• Understanding who your clients are and how to get your work in front of them. 

• How to build a portfolio that gets you the work you want. 

• How to approach agencies and get portfolio showings. How to market yourself in general and find clients. 

• How to prepare for portfolio showings and how they work. 

• What it takes to do this full time. 

• How to make real money and figure out how much you can and should charge. 

• Working through your plan and over-coming obstacles such as self-doubt and creative block.
