Anne-Marie Shumate - M.Photog., CPP

When We Know Better, We Do Better
Friday, November 12, 2021 - 1:00PM PST

What is holding you back from being the best you can be?

You don't know what you don't know. That can be painful to you and your clients. In this engaging program, Anne-Marie identifies common 'pain points' and their solutions. With candor and humor, Anne-Marie will share her experiences, and help you see the path forward to creating the business of your dreams, and images that your clients will love! 

We will talk about developing the skills to be your best and gain confidence in your entire workflow and processes. Lighting, posing, marketing, packaging, and equipment all play a part in a studio that works well. You will learn how to avoid a scarcity mindset, overcome client objections, and prevent burnout. It's going to be a program with something for everyone. 

Examining the business you've created with an open and honest approach can be a little uncomfortable at first, but it's an essential element in creating a relevant, client-focused, and successful enterprise. Get ready to examine the dusty corners and sacred cows - everything is fair game as you dig deep and prepare to level up!
