This coming July, there will be two workshops to be held in Washington as sponsored by the Olga Strawberry Council. The two workshops will be conducted by Ray Pfortner, a recognized expert in the photo industry for over 25 years. Both workshops will be held at the Olga Community Hall. The first workshop session will be on July 10 about “Photography for non-photographer artists” and the next workshop will be about “Turning your art into cards – and cash” to be held on the following day, July 11.
Ray Pfortner is originally from New York City but lived in Vashon for 18 years. He is also known for being an editor, educator, agent, rep, consultant, and photographer. The purpose of both workshops is to help visual artists develop their art to make a living out of it and not just a simple hobby. The interested participants are encouraged to prepare questions and seven samples of their original arts or soft digital copies.
There will be two optional field shoots for those who will be taking both workshops to be held on Tuesday evening after the first session and then the other will be on Wednesday morning prior to the next session.
Each workshop will cost $50. For registration and more details, feel free to contact Edith Thomsen at 376-2466 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
