If you have ever taken note of the images of stunning interior spaces in publications like 5280 Home or Colorado Homes & Lifestyles, there is a chance that you have seen the photographs made by Susie Brenner, a lifestyle commercial photographer based in Denver. In her mission to transport the three-dimensional world of interiors into a two-dimensional page, she not only creates photographs that get attention from the viewer, but they satisfy her clients’ need for work that tells the story of who they are as designers. Her images invite viewers to enter a well-curated space and enjoy the experience.
Join our meeting in July to hear Susie explain why commercial photography allows her to express a creative vision without using words and how she sets herself apart from other photographers in the industry. See inspirational examples of projects she is so well respected for.
Throughout the evening, she aims to give us an overview of:
- how she builds relationships vital to success
- how she goes about a day on location including working with stylists and designers
- what makes the sessions special for her clients and the homeowners
- her equipment, workflow, and the work that goes into processing her files into the final print on the page or online
- what photographers need to have in place for contracts, pricing and understanding copyright issues for commercial interior photography
