Simply attending Salon is an incredible opportunity to get inside the heads of our professional judges. Listening to their critiques and scoring will help you understand the qualities desired in award-winning images. Through careful observation, you’ll start to see your images differently and learn new techniques to apply to your own work.

Why compete?

Salon competition is all about competing with YOURSELF. Artists benefit from hearing their own images critiqued and seeing which images and techniques do well and where they can

improve. By planning your sessions to work towards creating Salon-worthy images, you will grow your creative skills. Merits received will help you achieve awards and degrees within our industry– giving you credibility as an artist. Bring a thick skin and an open mind and prepare to grow!

FREE dinner and social hour starts at 6pm.

GEAR UP!
When photographers get together, what do we talk about the most?

Gear.

Learning how to shoot incredible images is only part of the game. You also have to pick the right gear. Not just cameras but cases, tri-pods, modifiers, accessories, software, office machines, etc…

If you’re like me you’ve already got a box of old stuff that you thought would be just what you needed and ended up being a waste of money. Hopefully, I can save you some money (and some searching) by showing you what I use to shoot 100 events a year and why it works for me. From first contact with the client to final touches before delivery, I’ll show you the tricks and tools I’ve discovered that save me time and help me achieve fantastic results for my clients.

About Craig:

Craig Lamere speaks at PPSWF

My name is Craig LaMere I am a professional Portrait photographer from Pocatello, Idaho. I have three dogs and two cats. I have been shooting professionally for 4 years. I run a full time studio in Idaho and travel the country teaching my style of shooting and post. I was a 39 year old commercial insurance agent who hated his life. I bought a camera at Costco as a creative outlet and it changed my life. I’m a pretty technical classic shooter and my shooting style is very light pattern driven. I feel if, you can master the fundamentals of lighting and the base lighting patterns, you will be able to create any image you want.

My personal philosophy on life:

I believe the most important things in life are your family and friends. I believe that you should follow your dreams. I believe hard work does pay off. I believe you should be kind to others. I believe you should enjoy your life. I believe in my photography mission: Show my clients a great time and create the absolute highest quality art they will love.
