As photographers and other creative professionals, we tend to operate strongly with the right side of our brains, which is brilliant for what we do but not for actually getting paid! I’m going to share my passion for the business side with you. In my presentation, I will be focusing on inspiring and innovative wedding business techniques, with a strong focus on wedding pricing, marketing and customer relations.
Pricing is a constant struggle for most photographers, as it is an organic document that reflects so many factors including confidence, supply and demand and customer experience. I am really passionate about this topic because I see so many new and talented entrepreneurs operate their business with too much frustration and too little financial security. In this talk, we will cover how pricing and marketing as well as your mindset go hand in hand.
Being a photography presentation, we will also cover amazing lighting techniques and unique and effective retouching in LR and PS!
This is an intensive specialized workshop designed to be a shot in the arm for everything your business needs!

6:00pm : Cocktails & Awards Program
7:30pm: Dinner (this is included in Full Registration)
Awards Banquet will be held at Golf's Steak House

About the speakers:
Photography is an artform — whether your needs are for commercial photography, corporate photography, architectural photography, lifestyle portraits or romantic wedding coverage - it's all about the careful and skillful management and marriage of light, composition and posing. Although based in Kamloops, we can travel to your location if you prefer..
Our portrait photography includes families, couples, individuals, babies, grads, glamour and boudoir. Our image-editing skills have been honed by studying with many Photoshop Hall of Famers; this guarantees you'll look your absolute best! Photo restorations? No problem!
Kent Wong Photography is located in Kamloops, BC, is a long-time member of the Kamloops Chamber of Commerce, abides by the code of ethics of the Professional Photographers of Canada and British Columbia and is a member of the National Association of Photoshop Professionals.
I'M KELSEY GOODWIN, A GOOFY HOPELESS ROMANTIC WHO LIKES TO WORK HARD AND PLAY HARD.
PEOPLE ASK ME HOW I GOT INTO PHOTOGRAPHY, AND THE TRUTH IS,
PHOTOGRAPHY GOT INTO ME!
I HAVE BEEN WORKING PROFESSIONALLY WITH PHOTOGRAPHY SINCE I WAS 16
AND PHOTOGRAPHED MY FIRST WEDDING AT 18.
WHEN I WAS 20, I WENT TO PHOTOGRAPHY SCHOOL AND GRADUATED
AT THE TOP OF MY WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS.
FOR THE PAST 6 YEARS, I HAVE BEEN AN
INTERNATIONAL WEDDING PHOTOJOURNALIST
FOR COUPLES IN LOVE AND THE UNIQUE MOMENTS IN TIME THEY PRESENT.
I SPECIALIZE IN PEOPLE WHO HAVE NEVER BEEN PHOTOGRAPHED BEFORE.
MY POSING STYLE IS LAID-BACK AND FUN WITH 110% DIRECTION SO YOU CAN JUST FOCUS ON HAVING A FABULOUS TIME.
THE RESULT ARE IMAGES IN MY SIGNATURE CINEMATIC AND ETHEREAL STYLE
THAT WILL MAKE YOU STARE AT YOURSELF IN A NEW LIGHT.
THIS IS MY TRANSLATION OF THE MOMENTS
OF HIS FACE AS HE WATCHES YOU WALK TOWARDS HIM,
OF YOUR DAD'S REACTION AS HE STARTS THE DANCING WITH YOU
AND THE WIND AS IT BLOWS YOUR HAIR ACROSS A SUNSET KISS.
MY MISSION IS TO TAKE YOU BACK TO THOSE MOMENTS FOREVER,
to preserve your legacy
AND to WELCOME YOU TO LIFE AS A WORK OF ART
