Our Instructor:  " Hi, i’m Jan Simonelli. My background is in Graphic Design.  I’ve worked for Hallmark, Kodak and I’m an expert in Adobe CS software.  I’ve been a full-time wedding and portrait photographer since 2001 (NewBluePhotography.com) and have been running an editing biz since 2012. (SoCalRetouch.com).  A few years back, i received a score of 96 on a wedding album design at the photography conference WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photographers International).  I love every aspect of the design process."


What should I expect:  To connect with new people in the photo industry, learn new tools to make your album workflow faster, you will also learn the skills to design a beautiful album from start to finish.  If you are already designing albums you will increase your production and sharpen your skills.

What should I bring:  You will be supplied with notes so just show up and absorb some info that will change your business and create free-time in your life!

Here's what you will learn: . I am going to show you not only how to use an app called Smart Albums (by Pixellu) but teach you about the thought process behind designing a great album that will increase your profits and keep your clients smiling.  Shooting with an album in mind will be discussed and I will talk about 2 post workflows: one for pre-designing albums and the other for those of you who let your clients pick their favorite images before the design is done. I will talk about the presentation process both live and online, using software called Album Exposure. I will also show you how to pre-designing portrait albums in less than 10 minutes that can double your portrait sales!  I used to spend hours on album design!...We will build a 20 page wedding album from scratch in less than 20 minutes. If you use In-design, Fundy, FotoFusion, Album Builder or any other software, the principles are the same and the process and workflow will simplify your life! 

Will this class suit my skill level:  You will want a basic skill level with computers and digital photography.  This class is for all skill levels.

Is it worth the investment?:   For less than the cost of dinner out, you’ll cut your design hours, boost your profits, and learn how to make your images come to life in an album that your clients will cherish for generations.  Plus we will bee giving away tons of prizes from our sponsors including a FREE copy of Smart Albums & an Album Exposure subscription for 1 year!!

Where is the workshop?:  Hive is located in the historic Westport area of Kansas City.  We are on the 3rd floor and do not have handicap access.  You will find us just above the Champagne Bar, Ca Va.
