The Keynote Address - Shaun DeMint

Our industry is at a crossroads and Shaun DeMint is going to address what we need to do as professional photography companies to stay ahead of the curve and do some course correction.  If your business feels tired, having issues with staff, or just needs a pick up the second half of this address talks about "What is your why?" and why it is so important to know the answer to that question.  Kick off the 2018 PSU LIVE with this keynote and social event including food and drinks along with some special vendor presentations as well starting at 5pm on the 15th after attendee check-in.

Meet the Panoramic Profit.....Tad Goble. If you do not have an intentionally driven Panoramic program installed in your youth sports business you are missing out on a ton of cash that is just waiting for you to rake in!


Tad will walk you through the steps of finding the business and getting the most bang for your buck with each team!


His panoramic business alone accounts for more than he does with his team and individuals....and that is huge!


In this class you will learn how to intentionally market to your high school sports teams and make some serious money using effective sales and marketing methods.  Mike will also show you how to get the most out of the senior banner program for individuals and panoramics.


If you are not already doing player banners for high schools this class is a must for you!  You are missing out on thousands of dollars each sports season!


Everyone is afraid of the BIG GREEN MONSTER!  In this class you will learn how to do green screen the right way! Shaun will walk you through all of the steps to make sure you get a perfect green screen shoot with a live demonstration featuring on site printing with Desktop Darkroom printers!


We will show you how to light green screen correctly and each class member will get their photo taken and get a print from Desktop Darkroom to take home printed right on the spot!


Now that we have all of those individual photos taken during the green screen process Shaun will put them to work and show you how it's done!  During this class he will explain file structure, post processing work flow options and build the 2018 PSU LIVE Workshop class Extreme Team Poster right in front of you!

This class is a must if you are going to be shooting green screen and need to learn the post processing and team building steps & processes.

Sometimes it takes one to really know one....and with Tad Goble that is definitely the case! Tad is not only a Master of the Martial Arts but he is also blazing a trail in Martial Arts Photography that you need to get behind! If you are not already doing martial arts studio photos in your area you are missing out on a great program that is very easy to do!


If you don't think that Martial Arts Studios are not looking for you then you are dead wrong!  Martial Arts photography is one of the most profitable and easiest photo days you can book for your business.  Tad will show you how he averages over $100 per person during his Martial Arts photo days during this class at PSU LIVE!


Is your company becoming less relevant to today's parents?  Is your company competing with every consumer that has a smart phone?  Is your company finding that the old print-driven revenue model is not what customers want?


All that changes right now with Capture Life!  It's simple. There are no setup costs and you can start making money today!


In this presentation by Capture Life you will see how you can publish your photos directly to customers' smart phones using a personalized text message and email notifications to make more sales!   The best part is that all future photos are delivered to the same account and can be quickly purchased and sent to print right from their phone!   This technology is a game changer and we are excited to have Capture Life with us at the PSU LIVE Workshop!


We listen to our attendees and we have added a new segment to the PSU LIVE Workshop called the "SpeakerZONE".   We are going to bring up all of the speakers and have a round table, open discussion on any topics that you as attendees want to talk about!  This has been a major request from our past attendees and we are excited to announce that we will be doing this during the workshop!

Steven Easley knows that to run a successful business you need to know your numbers and if you don't know what we are talking about then that means this class is definitely for you!  Learn what you need to do with your business to take it to the next level in focusing on your business and success with this class.


Steven has worked for some of the largest corporations in marketing and business consulting from President Obama, Toyota and many other large names so he knows what he is talking about!  Don't leave early....this class can be a big boost for your business!


If you are looking for a great way to make extra money during your sports off season you really need to take a serious look at dance studio photography.


You already have the equipment and it's not as hard as you might think! Learn how to book your next studio, the marketing involved and the process and products that go along with this valuable market that is just waiting for you to take over and add that extra cash during your slow seasons!


Willard & Shawn Jones have added something HOT to their live senior sports shoots....ACTUAL FIRE!

In this class you will witness a live demonstration where they will show you the techniques and light some stuff of fire!  This may just end up being the "Hottest" class of the workshop!


During this time we will wrap up the workshop, give away the grand prize door prizes and more.


During this section you will be training on the entire work flow from start to finish using the full service processing from DDlab.  Starting with how your order form should be organized, scanned, image processing and all the way through the entire process.  Right after the full service is covered Brittney will show you every step on how you would use this system in your business will be covered in this live demonstration including answering all of your questions on the ordering process using Cuda.


If you are interesting in learning how to make sure you get everything done correctly you need to stick around for this class!


During this section you will go step by step through the entire training process of the Next Gen System.  If you want to be part of the Next Gen process this training is vital to you success with their program.

At the July workshop over 80% of the class stayed behind for this special training segment from DDLab and Next Gen and it was a great success.  If you are wanting to learn more about the way the systems work for either DDLab or Next Gen make sure you stick around for this in depth look into their systems and how they work!  You do not have to be a customer of either company to attend this bonus session, and this is not a sales pitch.  It's simple.  If you want to learn more stick around and you will! No strings attached!


If you have never seen the setup that Tad rolls up to an event in, well let's just say it's impressive.  More importantly it's how he uses this setup at action events and his unique approach to action photography that really makes this class useful to even those who have no interest in shooting large action events.

Attendee Feedback on this course:

"This was not a market I ever considered until this"
"Now I want to shoot action sports when before I never did!"
