The Business of Photography workshop is designed to help you transition from bring a primarily hobbyist photographer, to a professional photographer - and do so in a professional manner without spending thousands to make it happen.

I will share with you the things I have learned in the last several years as a part time professional photographer. I will share the applications that I use to make my life easier, and I will share how I set my pricing with you as well.

The format of this workshop will be a Lecture and I will leave time for your questions answered at the end of the lecture.

What people are saying about this workshop

"Very informative. The material was presented in a direct and easily digested format.... if you are trying to monetize your photography efforts and are unsure how, you owe it to yourself to attend this workshop." ~ Brandon Jarvis

"The information in this workshop was presented in a way that was incredibly easy to absorb- even if you think you know what you are doing already, you are sure to leave this workshop armed with a lot of tools that will make your business better." ~ Laura Dolson

"Amy, who was the hostess and presenter of the information under discussion was very professional and the material she presented was easy to digest and presented various options available to us who are just starting out. From the material presented it was obvious that Amy had put forth great effort and had spent a large amount of time researching the options that were presented from personal experience and by asking other professionals in the market as well.

Overall, the presentation was direct, to the point and fast paced since we covered a tremendous amount of material in two hours with close to an added hour of question and answer period which I did not expect and found that added hour appreciable.

The workshop was a definite 10 in my book. Thank you Amy!" Paul

    This was awesome! Amy's class was well-organized, easy to understand, entertaining, AFFORDABLE and RELEVANT to my needs as a person who has decided to "slowly-go-pro."

    A few months ago, I paid $125 for a "Beyond the Basics" workshop that was NOT through Royal Oak Photography Meetup. I came out of it feeling very frustrated at having WASTED A WHOLE DAY and $125 to listen to an old curmudgeon go on and on about how great he was.

    I had learned MUCH more from Amy in 2-hour "mechanics" workshop at a fraction of the cost. When I saw that Amy was teaching another course on the "Business of Photography," I jumped at the chance, and I wasn't disappointed at all! THANK YOU, AMY... for being respectful of my time, being knowledgeable of my needs as an aspiring photographer, and being sympathetic to the limitations of my pocketbook. I will put your wisdom into practice. Thank you for breaking down the barriers of the "secret photography" world.

    I went to the wrong caribou. I am on Main Street so I am guessing I will be around 10-15 late.
