July 25th and 26th 2017

Digitalab are very excited to be hosting two fantastic training days with the wonderful Charlie Kaufman on the 25th and 26th of July 2017.
Charlie is the founder and owner of Click Connection Corporation Ltd, which incorporates The Click and Fresh Groups, Boudoir By Fresh as well as one of the world’s most prominent studio accessories brands, Click Props. Charlie is also the founder and owner of one of the UK’s largest photographic studios, The Fresh Academy, which photographs over 2000 shoots per year and sponsors the Miss Great Britain competition.

With over 25 years’ experience behind the lens, 20 years of solid marketing knowledge, 15 years lecturing in photographic sales and marketing and being instrumental in setting up numerous studios, Charlie is one of the most experienced and talented business owners in the industry.

An Honorary Fellow of the SWPP, it is well worth noting that Charlie is also a renowned fashion, portrait and function photographer with work published in The Times, Daily Mail, Glamour, Elle and Cosmopolitan.


During this fast paced action packed course delegates will get hands-on experience with:

• Pre-sales consultation

• Knowing your customer

• Posing and lighting for makeovers, fashion, editorial, portrait and boudoir

• Getting creative to increase sales

• The ‘In Person Sales’ process

• Local promotional ideas

• Getting your prices right and packages

• Round up of the day and recap

As the title of the workshop suggests, this is a brilliant opportunity for any photographer wanting to grow their portrait business and maximise their profits.

The morning session will take place at the fantastic Biscuit Factory, just around the corner from Digitalab in Newcastle’s Ouseburn, where we will also be providing a stunning lunch for all of our delegates.

After lunch it is a 2 minute walk to Digitalab for a full lab tour before the afternoon session with Charlie.
