2016 Keynote: Sue Bryce

Tuesday, March 8 | 8:00 - 10:00pm
Amp Up Your In-Person Sales


At this power platform, portrait photographer Sue Bryce will reveal how she's revolutionizing in-person portrait sales, and how you can boost your portrait business with confidence. "Two years ago I was sitting looking at a printed order and I had a revelation: we are not a digital generation, we are a now generation," she says. "As an educator, I had to change the way photographers were selling. No more online galleries and no more shoot and burn—enough. We need to return to our roots as professional photographers. We need to print our work, and value this legacy we are capturing." This revelation gave life to Sue's Reveal Wall—printing her top package and having it finished and ready to go at the sales session—and since then, hundreds of photographers are significantly changing their income with magnetic and tactile in-person sales that have emotional impact and instant buying power. Please Note: A Full Platform Pass or VIP EXPO Pass is required to attend.
