“HOW IS THIS DIFFERENT FROM OTHER VIDEO COURSES?”
I teach you how to create a sell-able film with only 30 minutes of filming. You won’t need to devote a whole day of filming followed by several days of editing to create an interesting story to tell. it is nearly impossible to make a profit that way. I offer a step by step blueprint–a roadmap–to creating video portraits in the most efficient and profitable way. Many of my students add a video session onto the end of a regular portrait session to increase their profit. your clients are already there and looking great, why not 2x or 3x your profit by adding a video session?
“DO I NEED TO BUY EQUIPMENT?”
All you need is a camera with video capability. If you have a DSLR that captures video, then you are good. I encourage my students to use what they have and not invest in any other equipment until after the course. Likely you won’t need anything new anyway.
“WHAT STAGE OF BUSINESS SHOULD I BE IN? WAIT, DO I HAVE TO HAVE A PHOTOGRAPHY BUSINESS??”
Whether you’ve been operating for 24 years, or you’re in your first year of business, or if you don’t have a business at all . . . that part isn’t important. As long as you’re a go-getter, you’ll have a serious chance of success implementing the strategies inside this course.
“MY BUSINESS IS VERY NEW. HOW WILL THIS HELP ME?”
By completing this course now, you can set yourself apart as a photographer right from the beginning.
“HOW LONG WILL IT TAKE?”
However, you can take the course at your own pace. I had a student do the entire course in just 1 week and another student that took 3 months. Each module has 4-6 lessons that vary from 10 minutes to 1 hour. Most of my students like to pace themselves over 5 weeks to complete when work on one module per week.
“CAN YOU MAKE VIDEO PORTRAITS WHILE SAFELY SOCIAL DISTANCING.”
Yes, you can make gorgeous video and keep a safe distance. But you need to wear a mask and stay 6 feet from everyone. Plus if you implement video into your business now, you’ll be hitting the ground running when we don’t have to social distance anymore.
