What would it mean to you and your family if you could turn your photography into a REAL business? If you are already in business, how would you like to separate yourself from the crowd by creating images at a higher level of quality with sales that reflect what you are worth? Steve Kozak will show you how.
Steve explains, "The reason most people fail in photography is that they are missing the key ingredients required to become successful, and don't know where to turn for help."
Steve's classes have sold out at Texas School the past 14 years and at Imaging USA for the past eleven.
With this workshop, you will gain a wealth of knowledge and a unique insight into creating images at a professional level. Steve will have you looking at your career from three aspects: The Fundamentals, The Business, and The ART of Photography.

In the first part of the workshop, Steve will share tips and techniques which will help strengthen your images and foster your creativity. Participants will also learn how to create images that set your work apart from the crowded field of inexperienced photographers. Steve will also show you how to make more money with much less effort. Then the workshop turns to growing and strengthening your business. You will learn the art of marketing and the secrets to higher sales.
