Day 1.  The Business of Photography - Learning to make real profit.

Siva will be pouring into you all that he learned from his business background of coaching for service and sales.  Think of today as hiring an internal consultant for your business, to pry open, and fix all the holes you've been living with as a photographer. Lets fire the photographer who has been meddling in business and hire a new you that can be the CEO of your profit centre..

What you'll learn

+ Brand -  Who are you and why should anyone care?
+ Marketing -  how to speak the language that sells without being like every other photographer in your town. 
+ Pricing and profit - are you really making money or working yourself to the ground? And how you can become profitable fast.
+ Workflow - a great workflow saves you money, time.  Are you a rusty bucket or a well oiled machine? Learn what a well oiled machine looks like. You will learn a full out business manual out of the workflows both internally and externally.

Day 2.  Creative Photography that your clients will love & want.
Learn that its not what you sell, but how you sell that matters. 
Learn posing concepts that allow you unlimited creativity & how you can never run out of ideas at your shoots. 
Learn how to connect in a way that even the most awkward client ends up revealing their soul to you. 

Siva says, "I'll be giving it all I got, and teach you everything I learned along the way as I built my business from day one.   You will learn about the challenges I faced, and how I overcame them.  You should already know that the secret to success is hard work, but if you don't know what to work on, and which way to go, then you will be left behind in an ever changing industry.  Let me show you the secret to success, and a shortcut to the top."
