Plus, how to find out what a client’s budget is and to work with it and stretch it a bit.

Who knows maybe some folks in the audience will get a chance to role play in consultative selling. Pete will discuss locations on what he looks for, how he reinforces to the clients what could be important factors in choosing a location for their portrait and most importantly how the focus of a location is still secondary to the most important element of the family portrait – THE FAMILY!

    This will be a lively and interactive presentation on a genre of photography that should be pro table for every portrait photographer.

    Pete will help you understand how to choose locations for family portraits. What he looks for in a location, and examples of what to avoid. How to keep the focus on the family rather than place that can compete for the viewers’ attention.

You’ll get chance to pose the group so you have an opportunity to personally learn how to do it.

    Pete will cover what lenses work well and the compositions that lend themselves to wall portraiture. He’ll show you tools he’s built to aid him as the sole photographer on his family assignments and how other photographers have utilized these same tools to help their one- person operations as well. Finally, Pete will explain why working with other businesses, like a frame shop, will increase your sales numbers along with adding additional marketing people in your court promoting your brand.
