of your business such as posing, styling, senior models, marketing and the list goes on and on. Or maybe you are just starting out and want to save yourself some of the aggravation of common mistakes. Running a business is stressful. But if you have a solid foundation it can make things more streamlined. Senior Style Guide's exclusive three day event will be the #ultimatesenioreducation of 2018. Our line up was hand picked to give your senior business a well rounded push in the right direction. From senior models, posing, marketing, lighting, styling and creating a conceptual shoot, you will be armed with everything you need from our industry leading speakers.  

The hotel is a boutique hotel on the grounds of Depauw University. We want this experience to be intimate. So intimate in fact, we have the entire hotel on lock down for Push attendees! This will ensure you have the ultimate experience with our speakers from classroom style education, shooting to meals, and more with them. We designed this conference to be smaller in scale so you can ask the questions you want to and get the assistance you need. You will leave ready to tackle your business and get on track before the busy senior season hits!

KIND WORDS

industry leaders

 I have attended PUSH for the past two years and cannot begin to express how much the knowledge, guidance and friendships gained from this conference have changed my business…and myself. From the industry leading presenters, to the amazingly talented photographers attending, the experience was completely uplifting and encouraging. 

 Vickie Black compiled a line-up of industry-leading presenters ready to generously share their knowledge and experience, helping each attendee take their business to the next level. Vickie’s dedication to providing the best educational experience, incorporating the latest and most desired professional techniques and topics, while creating a positive, family-like atmosphere is to be commended. I cannot wait for PUSH 2017!

family

PUSH 2016
If you are looking for a conference where you feel like you belong this is it! The PUSH family is truly a family. Not only while at the conference but after and really for life. I have grown as an artist since attending Push not once but twice. But most of all I have faced some fears. Mostly artistic creative fears, and technical fears all the while feeling supported and encouraged to keep going. Learning does not come without cost, whether it be financial or emotional but in the end it is what gives me air to breathe and water to drink in my business. It is NOT possible to be perfect but without doing the work we will never know what we are capable of.
 
"It is the doing that is the secret..." a quote from Teri Fode.
PUSH is the reason I am able to start the "doing" part of the process.

expertise

I've attended PUSH each year, and the level of expertise and knowledge shared blows me away. I appreciate the time that the instructors put into their classes and the variety of classes that are provided. There truly is something for everyone to benefit from. There is just something about being surrounded by your tribe that is SO rejuvenating! Whether it's side by side in class, small group shooting, or late night chats, the photography community at PUSH is truly encouraging and supportive. Vickie pours her heart and soul into this conference and considers everyone there to be family. Who wouldn't want to be a part of that?!

Valuable

When I saw that the PUSH Conference was coming, I knew immediately that I wanted to attend. The only hold back for me was the price tag. I had heard that it was a good value, so I talked it over with my husband. We agreed that it would be good for my business. As a former Conference Manager, I cannot say enough good about the event in itself. Every detail was perfect, from the attendee materials (which were well thought out), to the speaker line up, to the sponsored meals, to the shoot-outs, and so much more. I loved the fact that we used every second of everyday for education and networking. The knowledge that I brought home, plus the friendships that I made were invaluable. I would highly recommend the PUSH Conference to any level Senior Photographer, you will be sure to get your money worth!!
