Think about all the places you use photography. Print campaigns, banner ads, web pages, catalogs…
But wait, that isn’t all. Don’t forget SELF promotion! You probably use your head shot on your Twitter feed, your Instagram, your LinkedIn profile…
Now be honest—does that head shot look like it was taken at the DMV?
What messages are your photos sending to clients? “I’m a professional. Hire me!” or “I’d rather be on vacation”?
With the right photos, you can attract new customers and inspire people to connect. Better photos can give you a competitive edge.
Professional photographer Maryann Davidson will show us the many, many ways people take horrible photos (it’s a long, funny list!). And of course, she’ll also show us how to improve.
About Our Speaker: MARYANN DAVIDSON
Maryann’s bucket list is currently 7 pages long, and growing. She has walked through an operating car wash (be sure to ask why). Her ringtone is the theme from “The Good, The Bad and The Ugly.” She was born the oldest but raised the youngest. The first photo she sold was to a newspaper, in 1992. Her first camera was a Kodak Brownie Hawkeye, which she still has.
Just north of Brookhaven and south of the Perimeter, The Oliver Chamblee (previously Olmsted Chamblee) is a creative living space and new Freelance Forum Sponsor. You’ll love its comfy furniture and casual vibe. It also features plenty of meeting space, free parking, and is within walking distance of the Chamblee MARTA station.

All to help you work smarter, faster, more efficiently and more profitably.
