    Pricing For Success

    Speaker: Everardo Keeme

    This workshop, Pricing for Success is for any photographer whether you are part-time or full-time, an amateur or professional, knowing your value and how to price your services and products is a crucial key to success as a photographer. A starving artist is starving for a reason, so put an end to guessing or using other photographers' price lists and join me as I break down and simply the process to pricing so that you can feed yourself and your passion for years to come!

    About Everardo Keeme

    I am a Spanish-American photographer based in Phoenix and owner of Photo Fusion Studio. It was actually a lifelong love of racing bicycles that got me into photography. Sports and event photography became my first love, and I got my start covering the Amgen Tour of California and the Tour of Utah. I later traded lycra for the lens, and have served as the photographer of the Waste Management Phoenix Open since 2010.

    Who: AzPPA’s Fall Fest 2019
    When: October 18th - 20th
    Where: Winslow, AZ on Route 66

    Exclusive Opportunity to Photograph an original Harvey Girl, Live Cosplay Models and Experience Route 66 by staying at the world famous La Posada Resort,  in historic Winslow, Arizona.

    At the Arizona Professional Photographers Association (AzPPA), we know that you want to experience photographic opportunities that will help you take your artistry to the next level.  In order to do that, you need professional education and opportunities to photograph.  The problem is it can take a lot of time, money and effort to organize trips and find models to photograph, which can make you feel frustrated and overwhelmed.  We believe at AzPPA that every photographer should have the opportunity to learn and grow.  We understand it can be difficult learning on your own, which is why we want to help you learn and grow by organizing unique trips, such as this.  

    We have put together an exclusive opportunity to photograph Harvey Girls, Themed Cosplay Models and Experience Route 66 by staying at the world famous La Posada Resort,  in historic Winslow, Arizona.  You can stop worrying about growing as a photographer and instead, rest assured that this Fall Fest will be educational, fun and provide many opportunities to capture storytelling images with live models.

    To attend this year's Fall Fest, please follow these three simple steps:

    1. Register online here

    Image Critique

    NOTE: Image Submission Deadline: November 11th@ 6PM

    There are few educational opportunities that help improve your understanding of image quality then print critique and print competitions.

    During image critique, members may submit up to 4 of their images (digitally submitted through the PrintCompetition.com website) to be evaluated by our panel of judges. After reviewing each image and giving a 'thumbs up' or 'thumbs down' score, each judge will in turn discuss every image that has been submitted to help the maker improve upon the image and potentially prepare it for higher level competitions.

    There is no charge to members to submit images for this image critique. Non-members may enter up to 4 images as well for a fee of $20 (in addition to meeting fee).

    Submitting for Image Critique is easy: Just follow these simple steps to upload your images:

    1) Go to www.printcompetition.com and click on 'free registration of new user' if you have not already used printcompetition.com, otherwise log in with your exisitng User ID and Password (this is the same system we use for Arizona State Image Competition)

    2) Once you are registered and logged on, click on the AZPPA box (shows November 2019 as date).

    3) Select if you are a member, and also if this is the first time you are entering an AzPPA image event.

    4) Click on the 'Create New Image Entry' button, then enter the information prompted (title of your image, category, and select if digital effects performed by you or not). 

    5) Click on 'Create New Entry' button and then upload your image.

    Repeat the above steps for up to 4 images you would like to have critiqued. 

    It's that simple. If you are new to image critique and competitions, start your journey now towards improving your photography and taking the first steps towards earning your PPA Masters Of Photography or Master Artist degrees at the International Print Competition. 

    By receiving feedback on your images now, you will be better prepared for submitting your images at State, District and International Levels (it is the International Level where your images can start earning merits towards earning a PPA degree). 

    If you are experienced with image critiques and competitions, now is the time to have qualified judges help you understand ways to improve your images before you enter them at State, District or International.

    Need help with uploading or registered, or not sure where to start? We are here to help you. Just contact Bob Zimmerlich at bob@clickchickphotography.com with your questions.
