PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP FOR MAKERS AND ARTISTS

FOCUS: PRODUCTS AND FINE ART

SATURDAY DECEMBER 1ST FROM 1-5 PM

@ KAY POTTER’S STUDIO 105 W LEWIS ST LIVINGSTON, MT

Part of being a maker or an artist is selling the work you do.

You spend hours creating a piece. You use quality materials. You bring a creative vision into reality.

And then you have to photograph it.

But you’re not trained in photography. And it’s stressful because it’s necessary in order to promote your work.

That’s why Kate and I are hosting this workshop. So you can take the next step in selling the work you do with confidence.
