    Posing For Profit - Seniors 

    - ALL DAY -

    SEE it ... SHOOT it ... SELL it!      

    Join us on a journey of discovery as David takes us through the process that he has used to become one of the most sought after photographers for high school senior portraits, not only in Michigan, but across the U.S.

    He will be sharing how he selects locations that will enhance his subjects.

    David will also be sharing his renowned posing ability and lighting, for  creating images that are MUST HAVES for his clients.

    Finally, David will be sharing his editing techniques and specialty product creations that he has used to take his average senior order to $3500.00, and his all-time record senior portrait  order of just over $12,000.00!

    You are invited to wander, explore and discover the hidden treasures within the Parade Company!

    Kathy Falls  - 

    Old Masters Techniques are Still Relevant 

    & Album Competition

    This presentation will show how the old masters used mathematical formulas to create their art. 

    Kathy will discuss the elements of composition and show how these themes are also repetitive in nature. She will also give some pointers on how to have a gallery accept your work and what you can expect from a gallery.

    Kathy will use her own art as well as that of the old masters in a visual presentation and samples of work she has sold in galleries. This presentation will take you outside of your everyday work into the art arena.
