Geared toward photographers with an interest in producing images for various media outlets as well as for those interested in working with nonprofit, foundations and corporations, this workshop provides practical advice and information on the business of photography derived from over two decades of professional freelance experience. This course is presented as a classroom discussion using real experiences and scenarios as the basis for discussions regarding copyright basics, licensing for revenue, contracts, rate and term negotiations, client development, social media integration, portfolio presentations, legal & tax issues, agency representation, image workflow and more. Students leave the workshop with a sound understanding to successfully handle the significant business matters they will face on a daily basis as a professional freelance photographer.

The workshop was named by Photoshelter, a leading company serving professional photographers, as one of the 50 Best Photography Workshops worldwide. The course has been offered multiple times at UCLA Extension as well as at Otis College of Art & Design, Santa Monica College, San Diego State University, The Sports Shooter Academy and will be hosted in February 2015 by the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP) in Portland, Oregon.
