If you have a slide show in your studio waiting room to show clients your work, why not make it more interesting by upgrading to video? The Professional Photographers of America (PPA) makes it easy with a series of short 2-3 minute Youtube videos that PPA members can show in their studio.
A recent Windows 10 Update causes LabPrints projects to be hidden, and then deleted after 15 days if no action is taken. If you are a Windows 10 user, it’s important that you follow the steps below Before October 13th to prevent this from happening to you.
Facebook has a feature called the “Pixel” available on your business page. This is a 1×1 hidden pixel image you put on your website. Every time someone from Facebook goes to your website, Facebook sees the pixel, and records the visit. This makes it easy to keep track of which of your Facebook fans (or potential clients clicking on ads) are clicking through to your website.
Why use the Pixel?
While you can already see how many fans or potential clients click on a post or an ad, pixels remembers who they were. You can later targeted ads to them or Facebook users just like them. You’ll never show an ad for senior portraits to a bride again!
Every professional photographer is also a business, and like any business, there are different kinds of insurance you must have. Fortunately, the Professional Photographer’s Association (PPA) has a full package of the most important types of insurance every photography business should have.

I was looking at the “About” page on a photographer’s website the other day. Every website has an About page, and this was like many of the others I’ve read before.
Nothing was wrong with the page – it just felt like I was reading a resume: A list of awards, past accomplishments, and a sentence at the end describing how successful their studio is today.
A workshop titled, “Lighting for Fun and Profit” by Claude Jodoin will be held Tuesday, September 20 at 6:30pm at the Troy Community Center (directions). The class is sponsored by the Detroit Professional Photographers Association (DPPA) and JDLab.
No matter what part of the market is being served by your studio, getting the images right in the camera saves countless hours on the computer later trying to fix bad exposures and color casts.
Using simplified methods, Claude will show you how to master any light in any situation using all modern lighting tools. You will learn how to create several different looks in salable portraits using window light, umbrellas, boxes, diffusers and reflectors. With a slide show that features all images, pullbacks, and live demonstrations, all your questions will be answered.
