Kubota Image Tools Announces Spring 2008 Digital Photography Bootcamp Workshop

Kubota Image Tools is pleased to announce its 15th Digital Photography Bootcamp workshop April 20-25, 2008. Bootcamp, taught by renowned photographer Kevin Kubota, is a 5-day workshop for professional photographers designed to supply all of the technical know-how to run a successful digital portrait/wedding studio; at the same time, it encourages continued development of a photographer's unique style and creativity.

"It's completely satisfying for us at Kubota Image Tools to see photographers of all levels coming together at Bootcamp and getting excited about their photography and businesses all over again. At every workshop, I witness the light bulbs going on and hear the post-program success stories and it's very gratifying," said Kevin Kubota, Idea Guy of Kubota Image Tools. "There's no need for anyone to learn digital the hard way or to feel alone -- all the information is available to photographers and the goal behind Bootcamp is to make it easier for photographers to embrace the digital workflow in their business and their lives."

A few of the many things that are covered during Bootcamp include:

1) Style, creativity, and inspiration
2) Digital capture techniques with live models
3) Workflow from start to finish
4) Photoshop® essentials and fine art techniques -- including the new features of CS3.
5) Presentation and sales techniques: slideshow DVD's, web, printing, etc.
6) Marketing and business essentials
