On July 30 I have two workshops scheduled at Serenbe Photography Center.
The morning (9am to noon) is all about social networking for the photographer and blogging. I have been blogging here since July 2007. This workshop will get into blogging for beginners and for those who have been doing it a while -- perhaps give you some ideas you may not have thought about. It will also talk about Facebook and Twitter -- the good, the bad, and the ho-hum. I will talk about statistics for your blog -- how you see what is being Googled to find your blog.
The afternoon workshop is all about preparing for a portfolio review. Atlanta Celebrates Photography is coming up -- and the portfolio reviews are scheduled for October 1. SlowExposures also offers a portfolio review on September 17. If you are thinking about doing one of these and would like a little prep talk -- this is the workshop for you. Even if you are not planning on one of these -- this can help you prep your work to show to galleries or any one else interested in your work. It is a skill and takes thought to edit yourself to a tight, cohesive, strong body of work. You also need to be able to talk about the work. This workshop will take you through editing, presentation, and the artist's statement.
Printed handouts accompany each of these workshops. Sign up online at the Serenbe Photography Center website. If you have any questions, feel free to email me.
