SPECIAL SECTION: Paris Photography Workshop – Day 5

Special Paris Dispatch #5
On-The-Ground Reports from the Ultimate
Travel Photography Workshop in Paris
Since you couldn’t be with us in Paris for our workshop, I asked David Morgan — a freelance writer and photographer — to fill you in on what we’ve learned. You’ll find his last report here below.
We parted ways this morning. The Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop in Paris has come to an end. (If you missed the dispatches from the previous 4 days, please click here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4.)
And though it was a little sad to say “au revoir” to the wonderful people I have met during this workshop, I left the hotel feeling hopeful. We have accomplished so much in such a short period of time. Rich Wagner, one of the professional photographers who led the workshop, said he’d “never seen anything like it in 40 years in the business.”
Every one of the Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop participants has left with at least a few sellable shots… the know-how to recreate their success time and again… the ability to sell their images to markets hungry for their work…
…and some, I feel certain, will follow through to enjoy the lifestyle of a well-paid, prestigious travel photographer.
You see, in the previous four days, our participants have learned and repeated everything they need to know: the handful of things you need to know about your digital camera… the few necessary “secrets” of Photoshop… how to get their images published… and how to start profiting from one of the most enjoyable professions that exists…
…and pull in $10,000 a month in residual income alone! Granted, it will take awhile to build up to that amount, but Blair has told us how to build a literal fortune from selling and reselling photos.
And though you might not have been able to join us in Paris, you, too, can enjoy the same kind of success.
It’s available to you now in Turn Your Pictures into Cash: A Comprehensive Course in Taking and Selling Amazing Photographs. This written program was developed by the same experts, B. Howard, Rich Wagner, plus many others who brought you the Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop in Paris.
I’ll tell you how to get it in a minute. First, let me back up a bit. My name is David Morgan, and I’ve been providing FREE on-the-ground reports from our Ultimate Travel Photography Workshop in Paris for the past several days. (If you missed any, you’ll find them in our archives here: Day 1, Day 2, Day 3, Day 4.)
And when I left the hotel this morning, the sky was overcast: a perfect day for photography.
But what did I do? As soon as I arrived at my friend’s place, I put my camera down to “take a break.”
This brings us to our sixth and last FREE tip from our Paris workshop:
FREE PHOTO TIP #6: Keep Your Camera Ready – ALWAYS!
My friend Chloe and I went out to hear some live music and ended up in the 18th arrondisement, not far from Montmartre and Sacre Coeur where we had watched the sun rise just a few days ago.
And I missed the opportunity to take several sellable shots of an accordion concert…
I missed the opportunity to take sellable photos of a young lady riding a moped in the rain… another young lady singing Edith Piaf and other traditional French tunes for drinks at a bar… young lovers dancing in a corner…
And, even worse, I missed the chance to take sellable shots of a “manifestation” at the Bastille, where about 2,000 people stopped traffic to celebrate the victory of the French “Non” vote for the European Constitution…
Young people waved black anarchist flags and red communist banners. It was quite a scene, especially once the police arrived. And though I was there, I missed the shot.
Someone else got that shot – it’s on page two of the Financial Times. I could kick myself.
You would think that someone who owns at least six cameras capable of taking professional-quality photos would have at least one on him at all times. Nope. I was like a writer without a pen — empty-handed.
So my FREE photo tip for today is a simple one: Be prepared. Keep your camera ready.
But just as importantly, YOU should be ready. You, too, could be missing sellable shots today.
These photo opportunities are everywhere. On the roadside… at work… while talking with friends… sellable shots can happen at practically any time, once you learn how to recognize and capture them.
You can make money from a simple walk in the park. Anyone can do this. It’s as close to making money from breathing as you’ll ever get. Seriously.
A few sellable images could soon have you traveling to places you’d never dreamed you’d be able to go — top-notch resorts… off-the-charts island paradises… VIP invitations… behind-the-curtain passes… paid for by the management!
Get started today. There’s no reason for you miss this opportunity to profit from something so simple as living your life while carrying a camera.
B. Howard, Rich Wagner, and others have taken all of the guesswork out of it for you. It’s all in Turn Your Pictures into Cash: A Comprehensive Course in Taking and Selling Amazing Photographs.
It’s been a real pleasure corresponding with you. We here at Great Escape Publishing look forward to hearing about your successes, so get started today!
