“The value and pricing of your art”

This will be a discussion of the importance of getting it right when pricing your art. All artists struggle with pricing. being a “Starving Artist” looses it’s appeal very early on.
This discussion will help artists to value themselves and their artwork. The seminar will be very informative for consumers as well. Most people have no idea what goes into a piece of art, be it sculpture, painting or photography.

“The importance of the printed image in the digital age”

“I never print my digital photos….it costs too much!”  As a professional photographer, I have heard this a bazillion times. The real question is…what is the cost of NOT printing your images??? Will a digital file in your cloud storage raise your child’s self-esteem? Will that digital photograph get passed down to your grandchildren?  Can you still listen to your 8 track tapes? NOPE! But I will bet you that you have a show box full of photographs of you as a kid in your drawer! Let’s explore all the reasons we should be printing our photographs and having them on display for everyone to enjoy everyday!
