A Profit-Making Approach to Shooting in a Commercial World


As you know, the CoronaVirus/COVID-19 situation has put Maryland into a "State of Emergency." The Board of Directors has been monitoring the situation and, at this time, and for the safety of our members and speakers, we believe that it is best to postpone our March program with Mike Busada and Jamie Turner until later in the year. The Board is working with Mike and Jamie to find the appropriate date and time to reschedule. 

Thank you for your understanding!!

Stay safe, 
Danny Douglas

A Profit-Making Approach to Shooting in a Commercial World

Jamie Turner and Michael Busada both have thriving businesses that encompass all genres of photography. Both have spent years as wedding photographers but in the more recent past both have geared their businesses toward commercial photography, editorial photography and corporate events. Commercial photography is an area of photography capturing images used to sell, advertise or market a business, a product, a service or a person or persons. Jamie & Mike will show you their approach to capturing the commercial client’s vision. They will cover everything from marketing and acquiring clients to creating a proposal, and clear through to the delivery of the finished product and what works for them and their clients. They will show you the importance of how crucial it is to the professional world to have imagery that sells them and their services and how to capitalize on this need.
