“Why A Graphic Designer Is Your Best Friend”
The talk will cover how and why photographers should not only understand some background on graphic design but also how partnering with a designer can help grow their business.
It’s a tough industry and finding that extra edge to create additional revenue and be able to gain additional work from the designers themselves is what could keep them ahead of the game. I will talk about the kinds of assets designers need and how the two can help and support each other, and teach a few design tips and tricks to consider along the way. Hopefully after this session you’ll find a new path in your photography and maybe even a new best friend!”
