"The Professional Home Studio: Keeping things professional in your personal space."

By Allison Watkins and Adilfa Ford

Monday September 30, 2019 at Don Polo Photography in Taylorsville
6:00pm to 8:00pm

Don’t miss this opportunity to hear from 2 of Utah’s most popular home studio photographers.

Start with a studio tour of Don Polo Photography Studio and Gardens. You don’t need a huge yard to build your own garden sets. See how Adilfa has turned her small residential garden into a mecca of studio gardens for her clients. See how she can photograph 20 or more different looks in less than 45 minutes. We’ll talk about sales and marketing and how we balance home and business. Allison will discuss her organizational workflow, branding, her unique one on one marketing approach and more. If you have questions about how to build a successful home studio business, this is the program to attend.

Best of all, it’s free for IPPA members, only $25 for non-members. Space is limited so don’t wait until the last minute for this one.
