SWPP Convention 2013
Well, it is only a few weeks to go until the SWPP Convention 2013. This will be the third year that I have been invited to speak and this year I am presenting two masterclasses, one on the Saturday and one on the Sunday.
There is a change of venue this year and the convention will be held at The Hilton, Edgeware Road. I think it will take me a little while to find my way around and find where all the rooms are for the masterclasses etc ! As well as all the masterclasses the convention has a large trade show with over 150 exhibitors. One of the other things I love about the convention is the Awards Dinner, this year it is on the Saturday night, hopefully the Hilton will have a piano for the traditional “singing” that lasts until the early hours… One of the Awards this year is the David Routledge Award in memory of a really lovely photographer who sadly died earlier this year. This award is only open to unqualified photographers to encourage the up and coming people within our industry; it will be judged by Davids wife rather than a panel of industry experts. Davids wife and family will be at the awards dinner and I know it will be an emotional evening.
Anyway, enough about the things I love doing at the convention….. The masterclasses that I will be running are as follows :
How to Get Brides to Book You!
Presented by Lisa Beaney
We are all looking to increase the number and value of bookings that we get but how can you get brides to book YOU?
In this session, we will look at all aspects, from the first emails that you send through to the way you present yourself and your ‚Äòimage‚Äô.
Let Lisa help you get inside the mind of a bride and understanding what is important.
On average 90% of brides that come and see us, book us!
Starting and Building a Photography Business
Presented by Lisa Beaney
In this highly informative session, Lisa Beaney will cover the many different aspects of business planning, marketing, workflow and presentation as well as talking about her own personal skills that have enabled her to build her own business whilst developing her photographic skills.
Lisa will also talk about the introduction of dSLR video into the business and what she hopes the next year will bring.
