Webinar Presentations for Your Club or Business Group!

Thank you for considering me as a presenter for your photo club. I’d be delighted to do a webinar for your group. I’ve been doing one or two presentations a week for camera clubs and business groups around the world since the pandemic hit, about mid-March, 2020. The most distant presentations have been for clubs in Melbourne, Australia, southern England, and Israel! 

When the pandemic hit, I reduced my rate for a 60-90 minute presentation to $250 for clubs with fewer than 75 members. 

For larger groups, my rate varies depending on the size of the group. We can arrive at a flat rate based on group size, or, as I've done a number of times, we can charge a small fee for the webinar, open the event to non-club members to attract a larger audience, and share the proceeds. 

The webinar software I use is ZOOM. I will host and record the presentation and make it available for at least 30 days after the event date.

The most popular (and I think most relevant) topics today have been these:
  • SnapSeed for iPhone and Android
  • Lightroom for Mobile for iPhone and Android
  • Topaz Tools (Studio 2, Mask AI, DeNoise AI, Sharpen AI, Gigapixel AI)
Please suggest other topics if you have something else in mind. If it's in my repertoire, I'll do my best to accommodate!

The Lightroom for Mobile presentation is a great presentation that can bridge the gap from less to more experienced. It allows us to create and process RAW all on the iPhone, Android, or tablets. For those who already subscribe to the Adobe Creative Cloud, the app is included in the subscription. For those who don’t subscribe (and don’t want to), a free version is available. The free version excludes three tools — SelectiveHealing, and Geometry — none of which is necessary for recording and processing RAW files. I’m happy to do whatever you think will be of most interest to your group.

If I present for you, I’ll create two landing pages for your club. 
  1. The first is a Welcome page for you to send to your club members. It has a description of the webinar, a short bio on me, and a link to register for the webinar. 
  2. The other is a Thank You page that I send out to participants after the webinar. It offers a thank you and provides links to the photography resources I have to share, and includes a link to the webinar that can be viewed for at least 30 days after the event.

I ask each club to provide a volunteer to serve as Q&A Log Monitor. This person will monitor the Q&A Log for questions that come in and interrupt me if there’s a timely question that won’t wait. We’ll close with a Q&A session. I will also print the Q&A Log, review it, and respond to any unanswered questions. If you are unable to provide a volunteer, let me know and I’ll make other arrangements.

I will set up a 15 minute “practice” session a day or two before the presentation for the Q&A monitor volunteer and your organization leaders who want to address the group. It only takes a few minutes to check the audio set up, but it can save headaches the night of the presentation.


Discounts, Learning and Resources

As a presenter to your club or business group, I can offer the following opportunities and discounts on useful editing tools.
