Fundamentals of Success in Portrait Photography. Building the Profitable Business of Your Dreams. 

Photographers may be born as artists but they are rarely born ready to run a photography business. Join David Hilton, along with co-coaches Scott Kelly and Kris Kelly, as they share their expertise to transform your perspective on portrait photography. 

David is experienced in building businesses, guiding owners to higher profits and greater freedom. As president of Hilton Photography, a business that he recently successfully sold, he grew this business from an average mom & pop studio to a business that has done over 60 million in portrait sales (in today’s dollars) He developed this company to operate very profitably and mostly with no more than 40 work hours per week and ample vacation time each year. He holds a Photographic Craftsman degree from PPA, a Doctorate in Business degree from SMC University, a BS degree in Photographic Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, a M.Ed. from Worcester State College and a MBA degree from Boston College.

PPA members receive an education merit for attending this workshop!
