The Cascade Center of Photography will be conducting a seminar called: Exploring the Business of Outdoor Photography, June 29th – July 1st, 2012, in Bend, Oregon.

If you have a passion for outdoor and nature photography and wish to make money and even a living at it, this seminar covers all the territory. Many photographers have very marketable images, but no idea how to get them to market, let alone, into a clients publication. The business is competitive and the sooner you learn how to shoot for the market and who buys your photography, the sooner you can realize a profit. But if you have no experience, where do you start? This workshop will show you how

This photography seminar will cover what and how to shoot, fine art and books, the stock photo markets, finding your niche, social media, how to shoot outdoor assignments from products and clothing to outdoor portraits, and so much more. We will also take time to shoot some of Central Oregon’s most scenic locations followed. The instructors include Christian Heeb, an internationally renowned travel photographer who has photographed over 120 books in more than 70 countries and has worked as a professional photographer for 25 years.

David Cobb is the owner of Best of The Northwest Photography workshops and leads more than a dozen photo trips each year. His work has been published in magazines, calendars and other printed materials around the world. He is currently working on a book about North American Japanese gardens.

Charlie Borland has been a professional photographer for 30 years. Based in Oregon, he shoots both locally and nationally, traveling extensively for a wide range of clients.
