Great Lakes Institute of Photography [GLIP] 

Held in Harbor Springs, MI. on  May 23-28, 2021




We all have video capability on our cameras and phones, and so few of us are leveraging it for marketing or sales. It’s a bit of a wall to scale, actually, with a whole new skill-set and vision, but it is certainly a skill you can learn and apply in a 5 day class at GLIP with Suzette Allen, the hybrid pioneer!

How can you leverage Video? Let us count the ways…. Video for Marketing, for Weddings, for Commercial, for Seniors, for Headshots, Entreprenuers, Models, Social Media, IG, FB, websites….etc.

Headshots and commercial photography are a great new profit stream that many of us are leveraging to fill in the gaps of our schedules! AND there are thousands of DIY millennials and baby boomers who are doing their own little gig on the side as Entrepreneurs! Need some Marketing? YES, PLEASE!

Leveraging video to tell the stories and educate potential clients about your customer’s product or service is key, whether you make it a talking business card or just put a short video on your IG stream or website. Gotta Learn this? ABSOLUTELY!

Learn HOW to set up your camera for the best video quality, and how to seamlessly shoot engaging video clips and tell the story naturally. Leveraging motion is the key to modern marketing. (And it is the best way make your clients look like savvy millennials, no matter what their age!) Beyond that, with everyone looking to websites to feel the pulse of a company, the ability to show personality, authenticity and core values [hopefully with an entertaining flair] is vital!
