“Go Home Live” – With Fuzzy Duenkel








Date:  Sunday, November 4, 2012

Time:  9am – 4pm

Where:  Green Lantern Inn, One East Church Street, Fairport, NY  14450








The Greater Rochester Professional Photographers and Miller’s Professional Imaging are proud to present the incomparable, award-winning Master Craftsman Photographer Fuzzy Duenkel.  Fuzzy will show you how to create custom senior portraits that transcend the ordinary.  He promises that you won’t learn how to do more… you’ll learn how to do BETTER!

Fuzzy and his wife Shirley operate Duenkel Portrait Art, a specialty studio in small, middle-class West Bend, Wisconsin.  Almost all of Fuzzy’s senior portrait sessions occur at the HS senior’s home.  Fuzzy is a master at outdoor and indoor lighting techniques similar to those used in the fashion/ commercial industry, but scaled down for the photographer who chooses to work on-location without an assistant.  Fuzzy’s choices of equipment (to buy or build) are also keys to help, rather than hinder creativity.  Shirley’s soft-sell sales techniques result in very high average sales, and pay for Fuzzy’s photographic addiction.

This all-day seminar will include in-depth discussions of how to price, light, photograph, and sell custom, on-location portraits of high school seniors…for creative and financial contentment!  Including:

  • Senior Slide Shows  (unique, cutting-edge, and artistic)
  • Sales/Pricing Methods  (simple, logical, profitable, and the wave of the future)
  • Equipment  (portable, quick, and effective)
  • Outdoor Light Control (total light control is essential)
  • Indoor Light Control (both window light and strobe)
  • Selecting Photo Sites On-location (crucial for image design, posing inspiration and theme)
  • Digital Doodles (tools and techniques of digital manipulations)
