Presented by Michael DeYoung
Why? What does it take to get started in the business of outdoor photography? A nice camera? A handful of great photos? A website? Sure all of these are helpful, but at the end of the day, becoming a freelance photographer who can regularly generate income from outdoor imagery is less about the tangible tools and more about your knowledge of the industry and the unique vision you bring to the table. This course, focused on getting started in the business of photography, is not for photography’s weekend warriors. Instead, this week led by professional photographer Michael DeYoung is geared toward experienced photographers who are looking to turn their outdoor photography habit into a money-making possibility.
What You Learn: The structure of this course is loosely 2/3 in-classroom lecture and 1/3 time spent outdoors photographing. Scheduled shoots will take you to magnificent locations such as a private ranch where the owner rides her horse through the creek right in front of your lens, the Lee Metcalf or Ninepipe National Wildlife Refuges, and Holland Lake where you photograph the Mission Mountains as Holland Falls crashes behind you. Classroom lectures cover a range of topics that will assist you in becoming a more knowledgeable photographer including many of the less-than-glamorous, yet necessary aspects of running a photo business.
