The event is sponsored by PPSO, but is open to all professional and aspiring professional photographers in the Dayton and Cincinnati area. Do you need to meet some photographers for second shooters?

Do you have some backgrounds that are getting stale or unused, bring them along and perhaps you will be able to sell or swap with another photographer. Do you have equipment that you no longer use? I do, I will be bringing a Canon digital sports camera with several batteries, manual, etc. for a pretty darn low price. Do you want to upgrade? Bring your stuff and trade or sell it.

The Fashion Inspired Wedding Day
Lighting, Posing & Composing for Impact

with Ted and Rachel Linczak

If you photograph people in any setting, you won’t want to miss this full-day, hands-on workshop, taught by Ted Linczak, M. Photog. Cr., and hosted by Professional Photographers of Southwest Ohio! Although taught through the “lens” of wedding photography, the skills you will take away can be applied to all portrait photography disciplines. Topics of discussion will include:

  • The EIGHT most common light sources encountered during a wedding (or portrait shoot!), and how to use them the most e ectively to achieve drama in your images
  • The importance of posing in helping to FLATTER your subject and add a whole new level of nesse to your work
  • The science of composition, and why an in-depth understanding of where to place your subjects within a frame is CRUCIAL for images that carry impact

The class will culminate in a half-day shoot with several models, breaking down all of the principals covered earlier in the day in a real world setting. You will be able to see how all the puzzle pieces come together to create wedding or portrait images with a fashion feel. Be prepared to have a whole new perspective on your approach to portrait and wedding photography!



Ted and Rachel Linczak, M. Photog Cr., own photography studios in Ohio and South Carolina. In business since 2006, they are highly sought after for their wedding and portrait photography. Ted’s style is glamorous and combines high fashion with photojournalism, to create imagery that speaks to the relationship between his subjects. As an educator, Ted focuses on the fundamentals of beautiful posing, lighting and capturing the decisive moment. His recent achievements include

  • Overall 2016 PPA Grand Imaging Award and ASP Gold Medallion Award for his album “1863”
  • 2017 Ohio (PPO) Photographer of the Year
  • 2015 Photographer of the Year in both Ohio and South Carolina (PPSC)

PPSO Meet-up Group started

Hi Everyone,

Thousands of people look up Meet-Up groups each month looking for meet-up groups that will interest them and meet their needs for networking, growth, and encouragement in areas that interest them whether that be personal or professional. There are gardening meet-ups, hiking groups, boating groups, programers groups, and there are photographers groups.

PPSO MEET-UP Group

Yesterday, I signed up PPSO as a Meet-Up group for people interested in growing in professional photography. Obviously, PPSO as a PPA affiliated group is not about hobby photography, but is a place to either grow toward becoming a professional or to grow as a professional photographer in South West Ohio. One thing that the advisor suggested was that I invite people to JOIN the group because, the group and event will have less interest since I am the only person signed up at this time. There is no cost to do this as a group member, only as a group manager of events.

Screen Shot 2016-07-14 at 12.25.05 PM

Your help needed!

I would appreciate it if YOU would go ahead and sign up to the group as a member (no cost), then also indicate if you are coming to the Annual PPSO Photographers picnic and swap meet-up. You do NOT have to be a member of PPSO to join the Meet-up group and be notified of our various events, however some events do have costs associated with them. You can explore more on this website to discover additional information as needed.

Annual PPSO all day workshop –  June 6th Right here in SW OHIO

Annual PPSO all day workshop – June 6th Right here in SW OHIO

Learn how to run a successful home-based photography studio, even in a small economically-strapped town! You can do it too! Definitely bring your note pad and pen.

Pick up great ideas for your existing studio or wedding business! New posing and lighting ideas too, so bring your camera.

David Hakamaki (from Michigan, a depressed state) will share his knowledge and business sense, focusing on being competitive with a home based photography business. David’s success has demonstrated and you will learn how a home based studio can become the “hot” studio in the area!

He will focus on the imaging, marketing, and operations that will give insight on the keys to success. There will be a live demo with a model using lighting, posing, and “live viewing.”

He will address key components to the business side of photography.

Components of the day-long meeting will include the following:

Marketing for Success

You need to get business through your door to stay in business. With the “white noise” of advertisements bombarding customers from every angle, it is difficult to get anyone’s attention, much less get them excited to come into your business. David shows you ways to market your photography business and get people’s attention, both via social media and traditional methods.

His unique method to capture an exceptionally high percentage of incoming calls, and turn them into bookings, has captivated his audience. Get potential clients excited about your business and WANTING to come to you.

unspecified-11

Sales Sessions & Trends

The most dreaded part of photography are sales sessions. Photographers either hate or are terrified over the sales part. Unfortunately, effective sales sessions are essential in operating a profitable photography business. David discusses ways to select products that set you apart from your competitors, how to price those items for maximum profit and then how to conduct a successful sales session. This program is business oriented, taught by a person with a business background. Learn established sales tactics, incentive programs, unique add-on sales tips and follow-up sales that keep your bottom line happy.

Live Demo

Look at how off-camera flash, LED lighting, and other creative lighting can enhance any portrait. David’s live demo will show you various lighting options, when to use them, and ways in which you can create dramatic portraits that sell.
