Our topic for this Tech Talk meeting is:

Estimating & Negotiating with Frank Meo

The process of running a photography business can be an intimidating task.
Whether it’s estimating, negotiating or writing a creative brief it’s not easy and the task can feel insurmountable.
Most photographers are not comfortable in this space for fear of not knowing what the client wants or what to charge.
Estimating is about creatively separating yourself from the competition and connecting with your client. Plain and simple it is a nuanced approach that leads to successful bids and being awarded jobs.
My approach is always collaborative, for any project we must work as a team.
Over the years, I’ve estimated jobs for every genre of photographer from commercial to photojournalist.
We will answer all your questions via a single real life study and show you the best way to engage with a client so that you can win jobs.
Free for ASMP Members.
Only $25 for Guests/ Non-Members.
The LIVE event will take place in Columbus, OH at Eric Wagner’s Illumination Studio (Location info below). Social time for food and drinks is from 6:00pm until 6:30pm. The presentation and Zoom meeting begins at 6:30pm.
