Check Your Ego at the Door: An Estimating Workshop with Wonderful Machine

This is a hands-on workshop geared towards the working commercial or advertising photographer. Wonderful Machine will give you the tips and tricks you need to pull together a polished estimate for any client or project. After a brief pricing and negotiating primer, we’ll dive in to a practical workshop building estimates from real case studies. This workshop offers attendees the rare opportunity to build and hone your estimating skills in a low pressure environment and ask all of the questions you may otherwise be reluctant to ask in a working scenario. The open, collaborative nature of the workshop will give you insight into the production approach and pricing paradigms of the DC photographer community. Attendees will leave this workshop with a much better understanding of pricing and negotiating in general and the DC market specifically. Attendees will be building estimates in real time and submitting for open review. Please be prepared to share & collaborate, bring your laptop and check your ego at the door.
