Whether you are working on your Master of Photography, Wedding, or Artist degree, or are just considering starting the process, this class will shed some light on the process and procedures of the image portion of the degree program. 

Topics will include:

  • The twelve elements of a merit image
  • Live lighting demonstrations
  • Composition
  • Posing
  • Storytelling
  • Technical tips
  • Image evaluation rules

This interactive class will not only benefit the images you submit for merit review, it will enhance your everyday client work! 

Carl has been an educator for over twenty years. He will walk you through these concepts by demonstrating them, not just talking about them. You will learn to evaluate an image through the eyes of a MIR Evaluator and then practice these concepts live. 

As a custom printer and lab technician, Carl will also share tips for enhancing your images beyond what you captured in camera. He will show frequently seen technical issues and how to fix them correctly.

As you see, this is about the “Image” portion of the PPA degree program, but it is so much more than that.

Please join Carl in the pursuit of excellence in the world of professional photography.
