How to Successfully Use In-House Photography at your Business or Organization

Following our Professional Headshot Special Event on Wednesday, April 25, at the Harrisburg Hershey Sheraton Hotel, please join us for dinner and a presentation from Shippensburg University communication/journalism professor, Dr. Michael Drager on Photography on the Fly: Using In-House Photography for Business. Whether to capture events, professional headshots or images for social media, this presentation will address how your business or organization can effectively shoot your own photographs in-house instead of outsourcing to a professional.

  • Photography 101 and best practices
  • Recommendations for an affordable camera and other helpful equipment
  • Valuable photo editing software/programs
  • How to use your smartphone to take respectable photos when you don’t have a camera
  • Photo editing apps for your smart phone
  • Examples of good and bad photos
