Photography Class
150+ attendees

Photography Classes are large group programs with structured presentations and impactful takeaways.

Each Photography Class instructor will develop and lead
1) a Photography Class (which will run twice) and
2) a Boutique Program (which will run once).

Photography Class instructors will develop two programs:
1) One (large group) Photography Class which will run twice;
2) One (small group) Boutique Program, which will run once.

Photography Classes are 90-minute educational programs presented to large audiences (150+). These structured classes will be rich in content, with actionable advice and clearly illustrated techniques and principles.

Photography Classes may include in-depth exploration of photography principles and approaches, on-stage lighting methods, live model posing & prompting, practical business seminars, or step-by-step processing skills, secrets, and techniques.

Boutique Programs are 90-minute, highly interactive programs presented to smaller audiences (15-50 attendees). Boutique Programs may include shooting demos, styled shoots, or small group business or processing workshops in a classroom setting.

Benefits of being a Photography Class Instructor

Photography Class Instructors will receive a $1500 honorarium, Matte Ticket to Click Away 2019, invitation to the Click Away 2019 VIP Mixer (where invaluable connections can be made with our vendor partner VIPs, Click & Company brand Directors & Editors, and your fellow photography influencers), and other fabulous perks (yes, we spoil you!).

In lieu of accepting the Click Away honorarium, instructors have the option to obtain independent sponsorship from Click Away 2019 sponsors or other approved brands/vendors.

Boutique Program
15-50 attendees

Boutique Programs are more intimate group experiences and may include a variety of formats, including shooting demos, styled shoots, business or processing workshops, and roundtable discussions.

Each Boutique Program instructor will develop a single boutique program that will run three times on the schedule.*

Boutique Program instructors will develop one small group Boutique Program, which will run three times.*

Boutique Programs are 90-minute, highly interactive programs presented to smaller audiences (15-50 attendees).

Boutique Programs may include:

  1. Shooting Demonstration (indoor or outdoor) – In a shooting demo, the instructor will work with models, discuss specific shooting concepts or techniques, and/or demonstrate her method or approach as part of an instructional demonstration. The instructor will actively teach for all or a significant portion of the program, and attendee shooting, if incorporated, will be limited.
  2. Styled Shoot (indoor or outdoor) – In a styled shoot, the instructor will coordinate and style at least 3 models for a 90 minute “shoot out.” The role of the instructor is to develop and discuss a cohesive vision for the shoot, guide the attendees to appropriate shooting locations, pose and prompt the models, answer questions, and facilitate organized and orderly attendee shooting.
  3. Workshop Program – These small group workshops will be held in an indoor classroom setting with tables/desks. These intensive programs are likely to include Lightroom or Photoshop processing, business topics, or image critique. Programs should be highly interactive, incorporating discussion, attendee input, or guided follow-along demonstrations.

* Selected boutique instructors may be invited to teach a single run of an additional boutique program on a more specialized/niche topic as well. Applicants interested in this opportunity are encouraged to select the additional/alternative proposal option on the application form.

Boutique Program Instructors will receive a $750 honorarium, Matte Ticket to Click Away 2019, invitation to the Click Away 2019 VIP Mixer (where invaluable connections can be made with our vendor partner VIPs, Click & Company brand Directors & Editors, and your fellow photography influencers), and other fabulous perks (yes, we spoil you!).
