There are several advantages to joining the live event rather than just watching the recordings. First and foremost, the personal consultation sessions will only be available to attend during the event and will not be recorded. These sessions are a great opportunity to get advice and input from our guest speakers for your specific business needs. The presentations will also have a Q&A portion where you can ask questions regarding what was discussed. Lastly, attending live means you can network and chat with fellow volume photographers.
No, the first ticket will cost $99. For each additional ticket, you will only need to pay $49. If you are interested in this please contact us at email@example.com for a special voucher code. However, please be aware that each studio only qualifies for one GotPhoto credit and one lab voucher.
We will do some minor editing and will work on getting the recordings online as soon as possible after the summer camp has ended.
You buy your tickets through Eventbrite at www.gotphoto.com/summer-camps. With this ticket you will also get access to the online event landing page where we will host all classes and individual sessions.
In addition to all of the various volume photography topics that will be covered in the talks, what is special about our Summer Camp in particular are the consultation sessions. There, you can get feedback about your particular business and situation on topics that are of interest to you. The guest speakers are not just business people, but also photographers themselves. They understand the industry and know the challenges and dilemmas that volume photographers face.
