“A DAY OF GOOD IDEAS AND MOTIVATION”
His most recent conference, applauded at the PPOC conference in Quebec City, Saskatchewan, British Columbia and New Brunswick, takes us on a very dynamic journey through the ups and downs of a 30+ years career. in photography. In a very original way, he tells us how he and his wife Diane managed to build a very successful portrait and wedding studio in a medium-sized city. With his digital video camera, you’ll enjoy an equally stimulating, moving and inspiring trip to his Sherbrooke studio.

In Quebec, with less than four months of good weather a year, Marc had to find practical solutions to create quality decorative photos in the studio. This is how he came to build his original studio sets for which he is renowned in the country. During his presentation, Marc will show us how he designed and built his impressive sets, we will present some simple techniques to bring them to life by incorporating various light sources and will advise us to choose accessories that make all the difference. Motivating and full of twists, his presentation will inspire you with a host of new, simple and practical ideas that will change your studio while bringing back passion for your work.
