Opening Act and Main Event
“Shoot, Sell, PRINT!”
Al and Bert Behnke of Behnke Photographers Frankfurt, Il
What does it take to survive in the cut throat world of shoot and burn? It takes a focused business plan and creating a loyal client base. Come join Bert as he tells how his sixty-five year old business, in its third generation, photographs, sells and creates products that his clients not only buy, but display proudly in their homes. He will take you through the process of creating a need to have wall portraits and albums that tell a family’s story. See how his techniques of couples and group posing create great images and large sales. In 90 minutes he will shoot and show how he can create images that sell!
