For visual artists, writers, musicians and anyone in the professional realm to craft a compelling bio and photography package for use with websites, gallery showings, publications and other venues.

Supportive peer review from instructor and fellow participants provides valuable feedback.
Additionally, learn basic requirements for choosing quality and size-appropriate photos for both digital and print outlets. Participants leave the workshop with a completed bio and professional photo shoot for an artist headshot. Supplementary editing and photo shoot services available from the instructors after course completion for an additional fee. Geared to artists, but any profession is welcome.
