    You know your equipment. You know your lighting. But do you know how best to stay out of court? How to protect your valuable intellectual property? How to minimize the risks of getting stiffed by clients or vendors?

    This informal and interactive presentation will get you up to (shutter) speed on a host of relevant legal topics, from contracts to copyright, with time for Q&A at the end.

    This Event is for Current TCPPA Members.

    Cathy specializes in landscape and nature photography, wedding photography, sportraits (sports photography portraits), senior portraits, and off-camera flash. Her style is modern and classic, mixed with a creative edge. The heart of her photographic work focuses on the psychological connection between photographer and client, understanding that a photo session is a truly vulnerable experience for all clients. She leverages that knowledge during portrait sessions to reveal a client’s true personalities in her portraiture.

    Cathy earned the prestigious designation as a Certified Professional Photographer in 2011. She has also won several awards, including the Professional Photographers of North Carolina (PPNC) President’s Award, PPNC first and second place multi-maker wedding album design, International Print Competition Loan Collection Awards, and photographic merits at the state (PPNC) and national (Professional Photographers of America [PPA]) level. Her landscape photography work has been featured in the Nightly News with Lester Holt, Washington Post, the Weather Channel, local TV news stations, Professional Photographers of America’s Loan Collection, art galleries and shows, and various social media platforms. Cathy was a featured speaker at Imaging USA 2016 in Atlanta, GA and has taught seminars and classes across the United States, including classes for state conventions and PPA affiliates (Michigan, Virginia, and Minnesota), PPA Super One Day classes, and PPNC’s Carolina Photo Expo state convention and regional seminars.

    Cathy Anderson CPP Bio:
    Cathy Anderson was born in Mount Holly, NC, just west of Charlotte, and currently resides in Morganton, NC. She is a portrait photographer by day and enjoys landscape and nature photography in her spare time. A country girl with a cosmopolitan state of mind, her photographic career started in her mid-teens as a second-generation photographer. Trained by her beloved father in traditional photographic techniques, Cathy “grew up in a darkroom” as a film photographer. She went to college at Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC, where she earned a Bachelors of Science degree in Biology. During her tenure at WCU, she explored the backwoods of North Carolina with her camera by her side, becoming an avid hiker, nature lover, and landscape photographer. In 2005, she photographed her first wedding as a film photographer, but quickly made the transition to digital photography. She opened her first studio in Newton, NC for a few years until she met Chris Garner from Morganton, NC. Chris and Cathy quickly found out that their shared synergy was very unique and decided to begin working together in Morganton. Celebrating her tenth year as a professional photographer, Cathy works as lead photographer at TPS Photography in Morganton, NC.

      Join Sarah Elizabeth for this special TCPPA Plus Event. This will be a live demo where Sara will show the benefit of having professional makeup done. As a professional photographer, you want to make sure your client looks his or her best. Whether your shoot is for a business headshot, boudoir or social media, see on camera what difference professional makeup can do for you and your clients.

      Sarah Elizabeth - Principal Artist
      Wielder of makeup brushes and a carrier of more lip glosses than one person should legally be allowed. I'm a total extrovert with introvert tnedencies and a lover of all things cute and fuzzy. To be real, I'm kind of obsessed with... Chai lates and freshly fallen snow... Lip Gloss (did I mention the size of my collection?)... Cupcakes. Mmmm, cupcakes... Enhancing true, natural beauty... Oh, and almost any show on HGTV or the Food Network.

      I started playing with makeup at the age of four while putting on performances for the neighborhood with my friends, and it's been a long-lasting love affair ever since. The ability of makeup to draw out, transform and empower, not only features but emotions, all while creating self-confidence? This is what I love about all the tubes, pots, jars, brushes and puffs that make up my kit. Because of that love, I took the plunge to follow a passion I was always chasing and became a professional makeup artist. I've been working in bridal, photography, film and fashion ever since.

      I love to bring out the beauty in every face I get the opportunity to touch. From Tomboy to Glam Diva, I work with each of my clients to create looks that reflect their personal styles or whomever they wish to be that day.

      This Event is for Current TCPPA Members.
