Photovision Video Seminars a great value
Recently I purchased a subscription to the Photovision video seminar DVDs. Even though I am not a working photographer, I am constantly looking for ways to help photographers improve their business and photography. I thought the Photovision videos could help.
I was right. Each DVD, hosted by Ed Pierce, contains two hours of video training by some of the best photographers in the industry. The DVDs are like watching a TV show where only the world’s best photographers share their secrets with you. Some talk about shooting technique, some talk about studio design, some talk about marketing; but all of them taught me something new.
For example, I was particularly interested in the video walk-through of Adobe’s Lightroom software. After a single 25 minute video, I felt I understood how the product could benefit several of the lab’s clients. The time was much better spent than reading a manual or playing around with the software. During another video I enjoyed listening to Julia and Jeffrey Woods as they explained the tricks they use for keeping a clients energy level up during a photo shoot in order to make more exciting photographs.
A one-year subscription (bi-monthly) to the Photovision DVDs is $149. Think of it as paying an expert about $12 an hour to help you improve your business and photography. It’s a deal you can’t afford to pass up.
In addition to their photographer training video, Photovision now has a large library of educational DVDs. For $69 to $149 you can learn studio lighting, marketing, posing, or any of a dozen skills taught by the industry’s leading professionals. Very cool.
