This workshop will help you identify your shooting strengths and get you started on creating your own image bank so you can start selling your photos and videos online. Whether you are interested in selling on microstock sites or other outlets or just getting your creative work under control, this workshop will help you develop your personal workflow and editing skills to make that possible.
Jeannette will share her own experiences with stock footage and photography as well as leading practical hand’s on activities. Together we’ll identify your strengths and develop your talents to be able to share your work more widely. While selling stock photos and videos is unlikely to provide a full-time income, you will develop new digital skills that will allow you to pursue flexible, creative part-time work you can easily do at home whenever it suits you.
Bilingual instruction possible, French speaking participants welcome.
