Friday, 12-1:30 pm lecture (optional fieldwork and Q&A immediately following 1.5 hours). Cost $50. Participants should bring their own cameras (and accessories) and a portfolio. This course will be a “how to” on putting yourself, your shop, and your art “out there” . We will be focusing on building your core group of supporters and working out how to tell people about your accomplishments and abilities without looking like an overly confident ego-maniac. We will take a three hour tour of simplified tattoo photography, media kit building and distribution, bio writing, and social media presentation (etiquette and timing, etc). The course will include a take home booklet of helpful hints and a massive list of magazine and web contacts to help you get the word out about your work as well as follow up contact info for the instructor for future use. When skills learned from this course are coupled with solid tattoo work, your visibility in a (arguably) “saturated” market will increase exponentially. Bring your camera (flash, blank SD cards, etc), your portfolio, and an open mind–Let’s have some fun.Instructor Bio:mAry D writes and photographs for a handful of tattoo magazines and manages Umbrella Ink with her husband Kevin Cole in Valparaiso IN( With over 20 years experience in professional photography and 6 years in a tattoo shop, she brings a lion’s share of hard won experience and education tailored specifically to help the hard working folks in the tattoo community get published and recognized for hard work.
