Always wanted to take your photographs farther, make them better, make them special? Through digital painting, you can enhance photographs to new levels of artistry. You can turn them into what you and the client WANTED them to be. We will learn basic steps in Photoshop, using the tools already available to you, to digitally paint your photograph (or a snapshot from your client!) into something beautiful. YES YOU CAN LEARN THIS IN ONE DAY! I’m excited to have the opportunity to share what I have learned from others that have led me to earning Merit Awards and Loan Collection Awards in the Artist category in the PPA International Competition. So bring yourself, your tablet/stylus, laptop and some images and we’ll have some fun!
How do you make more money with fewer clients, stand out from competitors, balance family life, and have lots of fun doing it? Kevin Jordan will take you step by step through the process he used to transform his new struggling photography business into a highly successful designer portraiture art company which has provided him with the ability to live life on vacation.
