Wisdom and Wine

Being a professional photographer does not mean you have more talent and take better images than others, it means you have the skills to market and run a business. There are numerous workshops offered to improve your shooting and post processing skills, but there seems to be a lack of workshops that focus on the marketing and business side of photography.This informative, inspiring, mentoring workshop was developed to give you the wisdom to meet the challenges a creative soul faces in turning their passion into a profession. Afterwards, you will enjoy a private wine tasting with like-minded passionate photographers.
