"About 85-90% of my wall portrait sales this year were of the magic box images. Parents always tend to gravitate towards this image, and the expressions are always amazing."Ted Linczak
From Professional Photographer Ted Linczak.
I wanted to give a quick shout out to Larry!
My wife and I have run a full time wedding and portrait studio for 13 years now, and we are slowly making the move to more and more portrait work. I’m pretty selective about the educational workshops I invest in, but we knew we wanted to start offering a Santa Christmas portrait event, and who better than to learn the ins and outs of this system than from the CREATOR of the system!
We even built out a new studio on our property for the large purpose of hosting this kind of session. It was important for us to learn the profitable way of how to make this a benefit for our business, and that’s where Larry came in.
What I most appreciate about Larry’s approach is that much of his process relating to sales is not only applicable to the Santa angle, but to all kinds of portrait work. With so few people out there teaching photographers how to make an actual living selling art work...
The classic age...the wonder-of-a-child years. Ages 1 to 6 may be the perfect size for the wonder years, however a person's inner child will live forever...this is profound.
From March 2019 workshop...can you say priceless. Capturing the wonder of a child is an art in itself. Once you have learned and mastered my method of communicating, you will use it in all of your child photography. Christmas photography art.
Critique #3 A True Fairy Tale by Debbie Vosejpka
Thank you Debbie for entering this beautiful image. And thank you for being fearless and allowing your artwork to be critiqued for the entire group.
Here are some suggestions that can take your artwork and photography to the next level. I hope this critique inspires you to grow even further as an artist. FYI...most of what I am showing here can be done during the session itself. Some of it would be done in post.
Photography Contest Entry March 2019.
Critique #2 My Muse second place winner from Claudia Regina Giamaro.
As with all of my critiques, please understand that all information is only here to help you on your creative journey. Creating pictures is easy...simply point any camera at anything or anyone and press the button. Creating stunning pieces of artwork that sell is another game all together. It takes knowledge and understanding of fundamentals. I hope this and all the critiques help you raise the bar and inspire you to grow, learn and implement.
The prayer image touches the heart. It brings client to tears while having purpose and meaning.
Can you imagine...milk and cookies with Santa?
Created during our latest workshop. Being able to tell a story during your session is so important. Keeping consistency is imperative. Letting your inner child be in charge...priceless.
