ASMP TALK with Selina Maitreya: Is Your Photography Business Set For Success?

By September 16, 2019 October 1st, 2019 Webinars

Wednesday, October 2nd at 12:00pmET

Join us for a conversation with ASMP’s Richard Kelly and veteran visual and marketing consultant, Selina Maitreya, who will share key information and inspiration for photographers who truly want to succeed.

To develop and sustain a thriving commercial photography business in today’s uber competitive market, you’ll need to constantly keep your attention on four distinct areas of your business:

  • Your visual approach to your chosen specialty
  • Your sales and marketing program 
  • How you service your current clients  
  • Your attitude and expectations 

 While much has changed in our industry, including how you can facilitate each of the areas listed above, what hasn’t changed is the need for you to consistently review each area and put action steps into place that will enable you to develop a business that will thrive. 

 If you haven’t developed your visual approach to your area of expertise, or you need help with your expectations or you have any other question that you’d like an industry leader with over 30 years of experience in guiding photographers to answer, join us for this ASMP Talk.  As you listen to the conversation, you’ll be able to determine which area of your business needs your attention now and you’ll come away with new strategies and inspiration to make the shifts you need.

A robust Q&A will follow the conversation.
