    “Standing Heads Above Your Competition”
    Profitable Business Headshots

    Corporate photography is a great line of business that is primarily Monday to Friday, 8am to 5pm work. For those already maxing out their evening and weekend schedule with activities for consumer work and the elusive “family time”, business opportunities during business hours are a great way to add revenue that doesn't compete with existing work.

    Join Mike Price, Cr.Photog. of Fairfield Photography as he teaches you how he has transitioned a large portion of his business into delivering corporate headshots and executive portraits. His clients have ranged from 1 to 180 headshots in a single project. Come to this program to learn some of the best practices for attracting and delivering on corporate headshot business. Mike has spent hours polishing lighting, workflow, automation, and sales approaches that let him do more projects with less effort.


    Who Is Michael Price

    Mike Price is a PPA Photographic Craftsman that turned his part-time hobby into a full-time business 13 years ago. Mike’s life experience in selling information technology solutions and services has given Mike a powerful advantage in creating a customer-focused business that produces award winning images. 18 months ago, Mike decided to shift his business to do more corporate headshot work and the results have been more time for family, less justifying the price of an image, and a more profitable business.

    Mike holds Bachelor of Applied Science and Master of Business Administration degrees. Based in Pickerington Ohio, a suburb of Columbus, Mike is an active member of the Professional Photographers of America, Board Member of the Professional Photographers of Ohio, and is a two-time Past-President of the Professional Photographers of Central Ohio. He speaks regularly to fellow photographers to improve their craft.

    This is a PPA merit class and another great way to earn your way to your Master of Photography degree......
