On Wednesday, March 8 at 6 p.m. there will be a photography discussion with Julie Avellino, "Passion to Profits." Julie Avellino is a photographer with work that will be on display at the Stamford Museum's POWERFUL yet FRAGILE: Connecticut's Waterways exhibition that opened in February 2017.
She has also been called a renaissance woman, a muse, a soul coach and a power strategist. She develops strategies and insights for her clients that allow them generate revenue for their businesses and put order in their personal lives. Her workshops and speaker engagements combine her ability to boldly and unapologetically weave her strong creative mind and unfettered imagination with precise, candid business advice to clients who are ready to step into new markets and reinvent themselves along the way.
This session, Passion to Profits, will be a powerful, interactive, insightful and fast-thinking, hands-on workshop designed to move you from the idea and hobby you love to a profitable and scalable business opportunity designed by you, for you, and in support of your life goals. You will learn how to articulate your dream, how to get family on board, and how to balance your "day job" with your future goals.
A follow-up workshop, Everyday Photos to Professional Photos takes place on March 26 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. with Heather Liebensohn, a professional photographer based in Shelton, CT. She started 10 years ago photographing mostly weddings, and today she has a thriving business shooting events and concerts, doing commercial and fashion photography, and conducting atmospheric on-location photo sessions of families. She is also the creative director for her husband's commercial video business, Videoactive Productions.
One of the featured photographers of the POWERFUL yet FRAGILE: Connecticut's Waterways exhibition that opened in the Stamford Museum Galleries, Heather has been recognized at various art shows and contests. She's been published in many local magazines as well as on the home page of National Geographic.
For love, she shoots landscapes, edgy models in crumbling abandoned places, and documents outings with her family. At her workshop Heather will invite you to follow her on journey from taking everyday photos for love to becoming a professional photographer.
