    During the week, we will:

    Review your website, social media & marketing materials.

    You'll Meet with Trish 1-2-1 to look at YOUR business specifically.

    During class, we will be creating social media marketing graphics.

    And have a bit of time to photograph too as we bump up your personal brand and image with new headshots for your website and social media.

     

    Hear  from one of last year's NEIPP Students

    I recently took Trish's classes, "Marketing to and Photographing High School Seniors" and "Increase Your Income or Shrink Your Dreams... The Choice is Yours!" at the New England Institute of Professional Photography, and I have to say, it was the most fun I've ever had in a class!

    Trish is a bundle of energy, and a wealth of information. Everyone in the class couldn't believe how fast the time went by - we were learning so much but it was so fun and interactive, the time just flew.  I met some great people in her classes, and the hands-on parts were so helpful.

    I have two more of Trish's classes to attend coming up soon and I can't wait!

    We'll start at the beginning;

     and great goals and a brand you can be proud of.  Then during the week, we will create great take away grapics and idea along some specific business strategies tailor fit for you! 

    When you register for NEIPP 2019, you'll get the best of all Trish's workshops rolled into one customized week of fun!


    Hear what others have said about her workshops.  

    "As  a business owner who happens to be a professional photographer, I was loving my client's feedback of being "thrilled" and "LOVING THEM ALL" but disappointed when they came to the studio and ordered four 5x7 prints.  After a few conversations with Trish Logan, I decided to meet with her for a full day in her beautiful studio. She reviewed how I sell, she helped me revamp my sales offerings that took me from a few 5x7's to an average sale of $900/session (within one week!!!).   Trish is not only a talented photographer but a skilled business person who is in tune with the industry and what portrait clients are looking for." ~ Carl C. ~ New York


    "Fantastic program today. You added many dollars to the bottom line of anyone who heard you and will take action. What you have done in a short three years is nothing short of amazing." ~ Tom F. ~ Maine

     

    "To my fellow photographers looking to take their photography to the next level. Trish Logan has got a program for you... Trish's at Imaging USA year resulted in one simple response….well, DUH….  as she showed us how to develop a very profitable and easy to manage system of School photography.

    While most of us try to combine and split the time between our family life and our “Photography” life, Trish showed us a better way. Trish showed us that by scheduling our school shooting time at the same time our kids are in school, we don’t have to make that difficult decision or feel guilty about taking our time away from our families.   Trish also showed us, with a simple formula just how we can get great results without the overload that a lot of us have experienced when we try to take on such an endeavor.

    She breaks down, her results and shared with us this formula to help us experience the success that she has had in just a very short time.  I can’t wait to see her again to see what new tidbits I can learn from her success…"

    Peter Yu 

    M.Photog.Cr., CPPF-PPANIF-APPI

    Sunday - Thursday


    Become a Certified Professional Photographer

    The most significant growth as a photographic artist started when I joined my PPA local and state affiliates PPANI and APPI, respectively.  The epic transformation was elevated through relationships that I built through strong mentorship and inspiring one on one education very similar to the NEIPP experience.

    Education has always been one of my key value statements and through this journey I was able to obtain the Masters of Photography and the Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA in several years.  Wanting to give back I began serving as a CPP liaison since 2011 wanting to help educate and elevate the photographic industry as well as having served on many state affiliate juror panels to help others pursue their goals.

    Another extremely important value statement is FUN!  Making the learning experience fun through fellowship runs very deep in my DNA which is also very evident in the NEIPP DNA.

    About Peter

    In addition to holding the Masters of Photography and the Photographic Craftsman degrees from PPA I have achieved high level of distinction which includes being PPA Photographer of the Year for 6-consecutive years including receiving the Diamond Photographer of the Year in 2014.  Other accolades include images accepted into the International Photographic Competition (IPC) Loan Collections, Top Ten District Photographer at the 2012 North Central District competition and received PPANI and APPI President’s Awards.

    Sunday - Thursday


    Environmental Portraits


    The environmental portrait is the bread and butter for many commercial photographers outside wedding and portrait studio work. These needs publish in a variety of ads for corporations, annual reports, employee recognition, and community outreach.

    This course focuses on the skills required to create dynamic, technically clean, efficiently produced portraits of people in their work place. The challenges of mindfully working in a new environment, finding the appropriate camera angle, perspective, addressing background concerns, dynamically posing subjects and utilizing appropriate lighting - all while maintaining an efficient and undisruptive workflow amid business pace - are essential skills we’ll cover during the course.

    We’ll address the ins and outs, building each image up from the ground, first by showcasing specific examples and from there walking through a number of hands-on, practical set-ups where as a group, we face, set-up and photograph new, challenging environmental portrait situations.

    The end result will be a fun workshop with experiential approach where students gain insight, practical knowledge and skills toward building commercial setting environmental portraiture confidence.
