When and where?
The Album Atelier is a one day event held on Saturday 24th June 2017 and repeated on Sunday 25th June 2017 at the Golden Age Cinema & Bar, Surry Hills.
Who is this workshop for?
The Album Atelier was created with established wedding photographers in mind, typically those with at least five years of experience and a regular stream of bookings, who are keen to energise and elevate their businesses through introducing and mastering a highly profitable revenue stream.
But more importantly it's about having the right mindset. So if you're an emerging wedding photographer or a portrait or family photographer, and you have the desire to market your albums better, build your confidence in selling, and hone your design workflow, then The Album Atelier is definitely for you and we would for love you to join us!
Why should I care about selling albums?
This will be covered by all our mentors during the event but here are some of our favourite reasons:
Albums are hands down the best way to tell the story of a wedding, with spreads of related images bringing the chapters of the day to life. By comparison, digital files are viewed one at a time on a screen which isn't fun for you or your eyes.
Everyone loves a good book and albums are the most enjoyable way to showcase and appreciate the incredible images you created.
Albums are future-proof and will last for generations, unlike digital media which will always eventually fail.
As wedding photographers it's our responsibility to offer albums to our clients. If we don't offer them, who will?
Albums are a rich source of additional and sustainable revenue that can transform your business and your life. The extra income will boost your bottom line, pay your bills during the quieter months and empower you to shoot less and spend more time with your family.
I'm not offering albums yet. Can I still attend?
Absolutely. Everyone has to start somewhere and our workshop will be the best place to get your grounding as it will be an end-to-end deconstruction of the album process, covering everything from choosing a supplier to selling, marketing and designing albums.
I hate selling. Are you just going to teach me how to be a sleazy salesperson?
No way. We hate the hard sell too so we'll only be teaching and demonstrating simple, no-pressure selling tips and techniques that result in educated and informed couples who understand the value and importance of albums and are more than happy to invest extra budget into them.
I want to sell more albums but do I need a studio space to be successful?
No you don't. Studios are a great sales environment but we deliberately designed this workshop to help all wedding photographers regardless of how they run their businesses. Our panel of mentors includes home studio based photographers and a destination photographer who is hardly ever home, so we know only too well that there isn't a one size fits all solution.
