IPIC 2015: Make Legal Money After Dark + Score More Outside the Store

Posted By Brenda DiVincenzo, Monday, May 11, 2015

Join IPI Member Rick O'Connor for two sessions at IPIC 2015!

 

How to Make Legal Money After Dark 

Forget credit card mileage programs - pay for your next trip by engaging new customers through events and get paid for your own marketing! Possibilities for event photography abound in our current culture. This session will help you identify these opportunities and what you need to get started, plus show you how to make it happen, day and night.

 

Score More Outside the Store

Every day, everywhere, a variety of sports activity is taking place. Opportunity to cash in on this recreation can take many different forms. Sports Photography is a broad term and our speaker has experienced the entire spectrum. Come learn details of how to approach this elephant with just the tools you already have.

 

Rick O'Connor has lived the change from file to digital and his photo business in Spokane, WA evolved from exclusively retail photo to sports & events throughout the western U.S. As a 30+ veteran football and basketball referee, he has unique insight in how to approach sports and event photography. Involved in his community through church, Rotary, various boards and sports, he has a desire to help others succeed and his greatest satisfaction in being able to work side-by-side his five children.
