Who should attend the Seniors Ignite Conference

The Seniors Ignite Event is for photographers that are motivated to take their business and their photography to the next level. The goal of the Seniors Ignite Event is to create an environment where the attendees can connect personally and professionally with amazing photographers, have the opportunity to be challenged creatively, and feel at ease sharing openly and freely. As well, those who attend will think bigger, find new innovative inspiration, and be equipped with useful ideas and strategies that will help them grow their business and kick ass in their market.

Seniors Ignite Models

Studios and photographers attending the event can also apply to be part of the National Seniors Ignite Model Competition. Seniors Ignite Models is an INCREDIBLE marketing opportunity for your studio, and because of this we have created the Seniors Ignite Model program so that it can be tailored to fit your studio’s needs. You can offer your senior clients an opportunity of a lifetime where they can become a part of an elite group of National Seniors Ignite Models. You will be able to photograph your winner in Las Vegas at some of the most beautiful locations you can imagine.

Seniors Ignite wants you to succeed in your market!! We have implemented an area on the Seniors Ignite Model website where, once accepted to the Seniors Ignite Model Program, you can be listed as an exclusive photographer on the Seniors Ignite Models page. We know that from working with other model programs in the past, high school seniors are excited about this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity, and therefore seek out photographers in their local area who are a part of this event. Becoming part of this program, along with the Senior Ignite Model guide you receive, will give you the tools you need to help you create a buzz for your studio.

“What a great event! Fabulous speakers and information! Beautiful models. And such an amazing opportunity to finally meet so many “online” friends! I left completely INSPIRED! Can not WAIT until next year!!! Donna Park, Donna Park Photography

“The educational opportunities and portfolio-building shooting time with expert photographers and talented models made this experience worthwhile. I will definitely use the strategies learned at this event in my business.” Felicia Marx Louisville, KY

“I LOVED the intimacy of Seniors Ignite! The round table type forum was awesome. It was fabulous to be able to ask questions and get answers. Having connect time both with other great photographers from around the country as well as the leaders in the industry was invaluable. I would highly, highly recommend coming to 2015!”
Carol Cardwell, Cardwell Aukerman Photography

“The Seniors Ignite Event has become the backbone of my senior model program and has made my studio ‘the studio’ to be at in my hometown of Juneau, Alaska. Attending the event provides me with the opportunity to network with some of the most innovative minds in senior portrait photography and provides ample opportunity to sharpen my skills both behind the camera and at the helm of my business. I have been blessed to have a winning Seniors Ignite Model for the past two years, and their experience has been wonderful. They come home to Juneau and tell all of their friends how amazing the experience was, and it builds my future business without me having to say a word. They have commented specifically on how amazing it is to have professional stylists and hair/make-up artists pampering them and teaching them. Modeling has built their confidence and given them potential for future endeavors. I would encourage any photographer wanting to grow their senior photography business to attend the event to grow their portfolios alongside of the most powerful photographers in the industry. There is no other event of its kind that allows you so much one-on-one time networking with such amazing professionals and the ability to hone your skills in photography and business, alike.” Penny McGoey, Becoming Images

“Seniors Ignite is a mind-blowing experience. You are given a wealth of information not only on shooting techniques and styles, but also on how to take that home with you and implement it into your own studio. I’ve walk away with so many creative ideas and inspiration that it can be hard to decide where to start and what to do first. The experience for my studio model was just as amazing!! The buzz throughout our community is just awesome!! I love Seniors Ignite!” Tara Rochelle- Santa Clarita, California

“The Seniors Ignite event was the best money I have ever spent for my business. For the price, my expectations were far surpassed. It was a bargain considering the knowledge and hands on experience I received. The instructors and official shooters were approachable, helpful, available, and knowledgeable. Their willingness to share their knowledge blew me away. No egos here. If you want a workshop, conference, business building practices, and networking opportunities, this is the place!”  Kristin Scully, St. Louis, MO  kristin scully photography

“I’ve been learning from the Seniors Ignite masterminds for a few years already through their email newsletters, blog posts, and online videos/workshops. I had been lusting over the SI Event and finally, back in May 2013, decided to bite the bullet and attend the 2014 event in Vegas. It was incredible. I learned so much in the few days we were there and returned home with gorgeous images of the SI Models – images that I’m proud of and that elevate my portfolio. I’ve been trying to stand out from the other photographers in my area and I know that by implementing even a quarter of the tips and tricks I learned at the event that they will help me do so. It was such a rush being in Vegas and learning from the people I respect and admire from all over the country. I absolutely cannot wait for next year’s event and am crossing my fingers for a winning model! I’m someone who places education above buying new gear and I would absolutely encourage anyone who is on the fence about attending to GO! (I do have to say I’m bummed that SI is getting more recognition, though, because I liked it when it was my little secret)  Thanks again Jen, Nancy, Cherie, and everyone who helps make this event a success. You guys rock!” Danielle Chudolij, DC Photography Boston, Boston, MA
