OVERVIEW

As a photographer you want to focus on creating images, but a camera is just as important as business practice and knowledge in the career of any working  photographer. From those who want to afford their hobby to those already who want to expand their income as a full time photographer, being successful is half  business knowledge and half photographic knowledge. The unknowns within the business side of photography can seem limitless, confusing, and  stressful when you only want to focus on creating.
In Duality you get not one but two successful photographers sharing their vast separate and combined knowledge of the business.
From the beginnings such as  breaking into the industry, getting your foot in the door, the ins and  outs of concert photography and touring, getting your work noticed and finding your  voice as a photographer to more seasoned knowledge such as how to  properly quote job rates, negotiate, read and write contract agreements, touring, and what conditions you need to make sure are met before you hit the road, how to best sell your work editorially and commercially  time and time again, even getting paid multiple times for a single job,  retaining clients and so much more.
Anabel and Jeremy will also cover the best ways to turn photography from a part time hobby into a career and what crucial steps you should take to get there, how to turn your work  into artist approved physical art that you can sell, how to properly  market both yourself and your work physically and online. Additionally, they will be going over some photography etiquette, how to create  additional revenue streams with your work, and making sure you are fully  protected from anything that could harm you or your career and so much  more. Aside from all of the good things, he will go over each and every  major mistake he’s made along his career and what he would have done  differently to correct it. Anabel and Jeremy will go over many hurdles they have faced  so you don’t have to, and will talk about all the hard times he didn’t  have to go through if they had the knowledge they do today. In this  seminar, Anabel and Jeremy will give you all the business tools possible to help  bring the blur that is the business of photography into sharp focus.

Daring to take his art into the furthest reaches of his imagination, this is sure to be a milestone in a career that continues to impress and expand into bold and brave new horizons.

About Anabel DFlux: Anabel DFlux is a published photographer hailing from Los Angeles and Las Vegas, known for a vast array of photographic work. Art is her passion in life, and in 2009 she made her dream a reality by establishing DFlux Photography, LLC. Since then, Anabel has become renowned for her innovative work including exotic animal photography, live music shooting and dynamic, imaginative portraits.

DFlux Photography began as a canine portrait service, servicing pet owners in the Los Angeles area at local dog parks and community events. She then swiftly moved into the marvelous world of dog sport photography, going on to currently receive a position photographing for three agility clubs, one scent sport club, and one barn hunt organization. However, throughout her career, she has worked with two dock diving clubs, one herding organization, six agility clubs, one flyball club, and two disc dog clubs. Her work has been featured and used by the American Kennel Club and the United States Dog Agility Association. Anabel has had the honor of photographing both national and international canine champions, as well as their litters. To help in her ability to work so well with dogs, Anabel has taken up agility classes and taken seminars on body language.

Simultaneously, Anabel’s teenage love for music manifested in her desire to photograph musicians and their various escapades. Having shot her very first musician portraits at the age of sixteen and her first concert the same year, her music photography career began rolling very quickly. Despite the industry’s hardships and tumultuous statistics, Anabel persevered in her desire to be a part of the music industry, albeit in a photographic sense. Since then, she has worked tirelessly with hundreds of bands, had her music photography published just as many times (in print and online), and received Senior Journalist positions at three music magazines, such as Outburn Magazine. She had previously worked for Substream Magazine, and had her work featured in Revolver Magazine, AP, Blabbermouth, and more. Anabel loves promoting all of the musicians that grace the front of her lens, and found a deep love for writing about their music. As of 2017, Anabel can officially say that her music work has reached an international level, with her photography being published in various music outlets within Finland, England, and Norway.

In 2015, Anabel DFlux had officially made her photography classes available to the public, and in 2017, she had been offered a positions as an educational writer for several online photography resources. As a self-taught photographer, Anabel feels that she has a different understanding of learning, and loves to offer that to students that have not had much success with traditional learning schemes and lesson plans. She teaches students of all skill levels and with all types of camera equipment, as well as post processing techniques and artistic business management skills. Her goal is to ensure that everyone understands the maximum capabilities of their equipment so that they can go forth and create the work that they dream of! From 2018-2019, Anabel DFlux taught seminars at Canon USA through their Live Learning program. In 2019, Anabel began teaching at Samy’s Photo School in Los Angeles, Pasadena, and Santa Ana. Mid-2019, Anabel became an ambassador for Sigma Corporation of America and has dedicated her time to education through Sigma’s incredible array of events!

Anabel DFlux loves to give back to the community, and can frequently be seen donating photography sessions and creating visual content for organizations such as CLEAR Canine Cancer & Lymphoma, East Valley Animal Shelter, Adopt the Arts Foundation, multiple wolf conservation centers, and the Judith A Bassett Canid Conservation & Education Center.
