Webinar 5: Work flow, editing & post-processing
Wedding photography is all about work flow. Shooting, editing & post-processing. The work flow dictates whether you make a profit or a loss on a wedding. Take too long in front of the computer and all your profits will drain away. Are you confused whether to shoot 500 images or 2000 + images at a wedding, well you’re not alone on this. So many photographers take unnecessarily high number of images which pretty much locks them in front of the computer for a week! You’ll see 3 different shooting, editing & post-processing work flows by each one of us using Lightroom 3 & Aperture 3.
Webinar 6: How to set your website for Google
Vast majority of photographers have set up their websites & blogs which do NOT tick all the boxes for Google. Secondly and most importantly, they don’t know what keyword research is all about. In this webinar, you’ll learn some amazingly simple tips on how to turbo charge your website & blog for higher rankings, how to beat your competitors in search rankings and how to promote your website for free.
This webinar series will get you started on making your wedding photography profitable and giving you the confidence to compete with the best. With no travelling costs, hotels to book or even to take time off work, this is an opportunity you cannot afford to miss out on!
