How To Shoot With More Purpose To Sell A Big (_(_) Album!
Join 8 time winner of the WPPI Wedding Album of the Year Award and 6 time WPPI Album Grand Award winner for a journey through his 20 year career of producing influential album designs that have made and impact and set trends all over the world. Jerry has the rare ability to reinvent himself and evolve year after year in an industry where everything has supposedly been done before. Jerry will share his vision, philosophy and design process of some of his favorite albums that will help shoot with more purpose to tell a complete story on the wedding day. Jerry will also showcase some of his favorite shoots over the last 12 months in his entertaining style.
What do you say if your clients want to create the album themselves? What if they want jpegs only? How do you secure more time on a wedding day? What is the wedding timeline? What shots do you take on the wedding day? What happens after the wedding day? Who designs the album? How is it sold? How do you upgrade your clients to a larger album? Jerry will answer all these questions and more and prove that there is more creativity in business than there is in photography. Jerry will even show you an album planning session he recorded over Skype with a real couple. Jerry will also share his "pricing formula" that will help maximize your album sales to figures you have only dreamed of.
