As a startup or entrepreneur, what can you do to take amazing pictures without breaking the bank on expensive camera equipment, lighting and editing software? Let us show you the S.T.E.P.s!

(3) Edit – discover free tools you can use to improve your shots

About the Speaker:
Micah Brown’s photography career started in 2007 with an Olympus point and shoot his parents got as a present from a friend. That same year, he took his own high school senior portrait. Later in college, he got his hands on some serious gear and ventured into the wedding industry in LA. In the past decade he has gained extensive experience in commercial and wedding photography as well as video. Currently he is concentrating on jewelry photography, which he considers one of the most difficult for a photographer to execute. Micah also does freelance photography for family portraits.
