We’ve created a product that offers the perfect blend of size, benefit, and price, and adding a live streaming component means that photographers around the world can achieve an educational experience that goes beyond online learning.
LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 23, 2018
If you were hoping to attend this year’s The Portrait Masters Conference + Expo at the Arizona Grand in Phoenix, Arizona this September, you will have to wait until next year. In less than one week, the conference sold out! Five hundred people paid $1,800 to attend The Portrait Masters Conference, which is creating a trend – and quite possibly a new business model – for traditional conferences and expos across all industries. Limiting the number of conference passes to only 500 is only part of its appeal. Its small, intimate size, along with an all-star cast of instructors and full Expo with the newest technologies, makes it one of the hottest tickets in the photo industry.
Creating a live, intimate environment allows attendees to immerse themselves into the classes, in-depth discussions, and networking events. But for photographers left without a golden ticket, live streaming of nearly every minute of every day creates a unique educational and networking opportunity from their office or home, anywhere in the world. All events are recorded and archived for on-demand viewing. Photographers can gain live access to each day’s events as well as an archive of all seminars and other classes by becoming a member of Sue Bryce Education. Membership cost is $35/month or $299/year.
“We are delighted that the Conference sold out in about a week and we believe we’ve created a product that offers the perfect blend of size, benefit, and price,” explained Sue Bryce, co-founder of The Portrait Masters Conference + Expo. “Adding the live streaming component means that photographers around the world can participate if they wish, and achieve an educational experience that goes beyond online learning.”
“Our goal is to create a learning environment that is exciting and inspirational for all students, whether they are sitting a few feet away from the instructor or watching on their computer from thousands of miles away,” said Craig Swanson, co-founder of Digital Product Studio, whose platform will host the new EDU site and stream live content throughout the Conference. “There is a growing desire for learning options that include small, intimate gatherings along with live Internet viewing and long term, on-demand access. The Portrait Masters is a great success story for how the conference and expo industry may look in the not-too-distant-future,” Swanson added.
Seminars at The Portrait Masters Conference + Expo will cover a variety of creative, technical, and business topics including lighting, posing, retouching, marketing, and sales, to name just a few. Onsite and online participants will receive some of the most intense professional training, which can be applied to their creative styles and business environments immediately following the conference. In conjunction with the conference will be the Expo, consisting of more than 75 manufacturers of photographic hardware, software, and accessories who will demonstrate the latest in imaging technology.
