Paul’s Photo Pro Talk

October 4, 2016

Artist Reception 5:30-7:00pm (free)

Pro Talk 7:00-9:00pm ($20)

Suzette Allen, Lumix Luminary, Photographic Craftsman, Certified Professional Photographer, Approved Photographic Instructor with PPA, Professional Photographers of America

“My unique approach: flowing seamlessly between stills/video capturing more life and impact in my images & storytelling. I believe that photographers need to be capable of creating a hybrid product that embraces movement [and emotion] along with their still photos, in order to be relevant today.”

Suzette will be sharing a selection of hybrid videos [portraits, scenic and commercial projects], giving her perspective on shooting and filming and how she approaches each job. She will share how she markets the talking business cards and marketing pieces, as well as how she creates intriguing interactive landscape images and travel imagery! "Here with Me"

Since Hybrid is such a new art medium, many photographers are not sure of the workflow and many options, so she will be covering the different solutions to create master images and ALSO create video stories with Lightroom & Photoshop. It’s a fresh approach and you’ll be amazed at what is possible in video editing in PhotoshopCC!

Get the full how-to and hands-on at the class on Oct 14 for creating shows with Pro Show Web, and the class on the 15-16th, where we refine images and videos with Lightroom and Photoshop to create custom videos with Photoshop CC!


Suzette has been a portrait artist for 30 years, and Photoshop instructor for 15 years, and more recently, a Hybrid/mirrorless instructor for 3 years. She helps photographers become well-rounded and skilled to become the next generation of image enthusiast; ones who are fluent in photographing stills AND video, and capable using image editing software as well. She lives in Sacramento California with her husband Jon and has a small studio there, but they travel a lot, teaching and shooting everywhere they go, teaching and sharing along the way. Suzette loves the creative process of not only shooting and refining the image with Photoshop/Lightroom/plugins, but also making hybrid videos that tell stories much deeper and more meaningful than a still capture. Portraits, especially, will come to life with bits of video [and LivePortrait], but even scenics and landscapes become interactive art when combined creativity with video!
