You have built up your portfolio to include stunning pieces, but in your photos, they are showing up more like Paint-by-Number than Picasso. How do you photograph your art to truly reflect the quality? As the world becomes more digital, you need the promotions of your work to be conveyed digitally as well. 

Learn from photographers Dane & Caitlin Vermeulen of Michigan Imagery how to perfectly capture your work. 

Cost is $10 members / $15 non-members. See complete details and register to attend by clicking on the Facebook Event button below.
