Hi All - Excited about our October event? I am! Happy to announce that our October event will offer a workshop on visual storytelling by the awesome AJ Coots. Can't wait to see you all!

Show to Tell: Using the Tools of Visual Storytelling to Communicate your Message

Emmy-winning television shows, blockbuster movies and Fortune 500 brands all use the powerful language of visual storytelling to convince buyers, sway emotions, convince and communicate meaning at an intuitive level. In this fun and fast-paced, highly visual and interactive workshop-style presentation, you will learn how to harness the power of visual language to communicate with potential clients on a visceral or 'gut' level, identify the top professional characteristics that differentiate you from others in your field, and learn to communicate visually to support your personal and professional brand.

The Speaker:

AJ Coots learned her craft at the legendary Kevin Clark Studios in Vancouver, BC (aka "Hollywood North") helping actors communicate character and get hired using professional headshots. However, AJ now uses her powers for 'mortals, not models' and specializes in helping clients who self-identify as 'not photogenic' and who have never met a camera that wasn't out to get them. In 2006 she established her Portland, Oregon headshot photography studio in the heart of the Pearl District, NW 9th / Everett situated steps from the Portland Streetcar (and dangerously close to Ben and Jerry's Ice Cream) where she specializes in creating storytelling headshots for thought-leaders, authors, national speakers, entrepreneurs, and professionals in all walks of life.
