The Secrets to Success When Turning Pro!
I sent this email a couple of days ago and I still have not heard from some of you. If you are excited about Texas School, then PLEASE let me know by completing the two tasks below.

I still need to hear from: Cristal, Rhonda, Patricia, Peris, Marco and Myra.

PLUS, I want all of you to post on the class FB page. Let's get this done so we can get started on the good stuff.
Greetings,

Welcome to "The Secrets To Success When Turning Pro!"
 
I appreciate all of you getting back to me and letting me know you are getting my e-mails. I will be communicating with you a lot, so please check your e-mail at least every other day. 

IF you REALLY love me, then you will continue to visit our class page on Facebook https://www.facebook.com/groups/106013822768250/ and keep those questions and comments coming. 
I want you to know that I am very excited and honored you are taking my class. I promise, you will be amazed at how much we cover in that short week. I have taught this class many times at Texas School and at PPA, so I know you are going to be changed.

Over the past few months, I have had the opportunity to meet with some of you at various guild meetings, iHeart, or workshops. Some of you I have “met” through e-mail and phone conversations.

I know from my previous experiences as an instructor at Texas School that each student comes to class with a broad range of interests and expectations, and a fairly wide range of experience levels. This is to be expected.

Interestingly, it is not the “diversity” among those of you whom I have visited that has intrigued me, but rather it is the similarities among you that has me so excited about this class.

I have observed that as a group, we all seem to share: a passion for photography, a hunger for knowledge, and a strong desire for success. It is with these three common threads in mind, that I am putting the finishing touches on the 2022 edition of The Secrets of Success When Turning Pro.

I do have a few favors to ask of each of you:

  • Next time you are out and about, pick up a pack of 3x5 notecards.
  • Gather about 4 – 5 of your all-time, favorite images that YOU have taken. These do not have to be your best work, nor do they have to be all that recent – I just want you to find the images the mean the most to you. Select your two most very favorite among them and have a 8x10's printed that you can bring to class. They can be of a client, a friend or a family member – but it is going to be most helpful if these are images of a person or people and not a landscape or scenic image.

I will be sending you a complete list of things to bring a little bit closer to class.
 
That’s it for now! 
 
Steve
