The "Career Photographer" program is for low volume portrait and event photographers (not sports, nature, travel, medical, or forensics photography), for family, high school senior, newborn, children, headshots, business and personal events, Weddings, etc. You will learn the foundation of photography, intermediate photography, and advanced photography techniques with a large part of the program on the business side: Business planning, marketing, client relationship management, how to communicate with clients in person, on the phone, and text-based (text, email, website, etc.) -everything associated with staying in business for a career!
Landers Photography School is the only low-volume 'photography and business' specific program in the area and we accept only the finest applicants. We seek individuals who demonstrate competence, character, and passion. Those who aspire to make it happen against all odds and want to help others by actions that will uplift the entire photography community. This is not a quick program, there is simply too much to learn, it takes two years to complete this program.
Courses cover the foundations of photography, intermediate, and advanced concepts and students gain experience in a wide range of photographic specialties including portraiture, lifestyle, commercial, events, nature, multimedia, and photojournalism.
In addition, students learn Lightroom and Photoshop skills, produce a professional portfolio, complete a business plan and have an introduction to design and marketing.
