Full Course Name: 
The Steps to Success: A Practical Workshop in Advancing Your Career

Designed for all levels of photographers seeking to advance their careers, this class provides the necessary insights, tools and resources for achieving a higher level of success. Student challenges will be addressed, both as a group and in one 20-minute private session per student (to be scheduled individually.) Are you stuck, overwhelmed or on a plateau? This course will address concerns and help propel you along your path to success.

Divided among five in-class sessions, the course will analyze where the photographers careers are currently and where they are headed. (Class session #4 will be devoted entirely to private 20-minute sessions with each student, to be scheduled in-class.) We will set short and long-term goals, share practical resource materials, and connect with fellow photographers who might be at a similar point in their careers. As a class we will cover self-promotion and marketing tools and come up with a clear vision of what is necessary to accelerate one’s photography career.

Individually and as a group we will embark on website effectiveness, group portfolio reviews, and discuss mailers, contests, exhibitions, publishing and the business of the stock industry, editorial vs. advertising assignments, building relationships, client lists, and diversification and copyright/licensing. We will also explore networking via helpful professional organizations and online communities.

Students will be given time to implement changes to their websites and promo materials prior to the final class which will allow all to share accomplishments and solve challenges that may not yet be fully resolved.

Please Note: This course will meet at the dnj Gallery in Santa Monica. The dates below are subject to change depending on the gallery’s art installations and closures.
