I love connecting and sharing relevant information on photography. Marketing, successes, struggles, relevant goings on, anything and all to do with running a photography business.
I run these events live and welcome everyone to attend. Open to all. They are recorded and then archived in my membership forum.
You can have the recording to do with as you wish.
I’ve hosted over 900 interviews like this. (I said I love it!)
See below for examples of some of the possible questions and a few recent gigs.
(note: I often run a test with many of my first time interviewees to answer questions you might have and mainly to ensure the technical is running 100%)
Here’s a few samples from some recent webinars…:
(I’ve had many notables such as Jeff Lubin, Fuzzy Duenkel, Sandy Puc, Travis Gadsby, John Hartman, Maggie Habieda, Margaret Bryant, Kirsten Lewis, Vanessa Joy, Marilyn Sholin, Tim Walden and many, many more…)
SOME typical questions. These are general. Sometimes the topic ends up going down weird and wacky rabbit holes.
Others have pre-planned topics we discuss, usually to do with their area of specialty. Still others I have run 3-5 part series where we co organize a for-profit event.
Your screen will show up during the event to show images, shots of your studio or relevant info.
