    Behind the Scenes: The Magic of Santa                         

    August 30th, 2021

    Virtual Class
    9:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. CST



     Spend a full day with award winning  photographer, Chris Fritchie and learn how niche sessions can change your life. 

    You will learn how to find inspiration for your holiday sessions.  Chris's marketing person will join us and share how the sessions are marketed.  

    There will also be a special emphasis on why every photographer MUST “shoot for a book.” You will learn why every studio and every client should shoot each session with an album in mind and how this leads to bigger sales.

    Learn what Chris is doing as he rebrands his studio and starts over.

    We have an opportunity for photographers who are not PPI members; but still want to take advantage of spending the day with Dana Rose.

    This virtual class is offered to non PPI members and allows you a full day of education as Dana teaches you how to utilize Photoshop techniques in your storytelling. 

    This program will vary each time it is taught as I use different images and take suggestions from the audience on what they would like to learn. My goal isn’t to just teach you photoshop but rather to teach you how to develop your own way of using photoshop to create your own editing style. And most importantly, we’ll have fun doing so!

    This is a PPA continuing education class and you will receive a merit for attending.
