went online April of 2003 and is an on going seminar for the
advancement of professional portrait photographers and those who
want to learn pro portrait skills. Members gain one on one
experience with Top Senior Portrait photographer "Ron
Kramer" as he teaches his techniques used in posing, lighting,
conventional and digital retouching, and print enhancement. Ron
has owned and operated "The
House of Photography" for 24 years and has 3 decades of
personal photographic experience.
While you'll generally pay 100-200.00 for an afternoon seminar, or
500-800.00 for a weekend or seven day class as just another
photographer in the audience. Even pay 300.00+ just to be listed as
a member of a professional association. Our new method of On-line
Training costs you nothing in travel expenses and allows you to sit
and learn from the comfort of your home or studio. No where else can
you get One-On-One questions and answers over the year with the
instructor as you practice what you've learned. This allows you to
progress quickly over days, weeks, months throughout the entire
year! No more paying for seminars go back home a week later and
never use what you were told. We'll actually "put into
practice" what we preach!
Because we wish to keep the instruction on a personal level, memberships will be limited. Annual membership is $1795. for a full year of instruction. "Read only" memberships are $1295.00. Both are exactly the same except Read Only students are not allowed to ask questions. They can read others questions, Ron's answers to them, view all videos in the video library. Everything is the same, but no personal mentoring.
You'll easily make this back 100X in
offering superior work and this investment will easily be recouped
in only one or two one hour photo sessions. Of course you can learn
at your own pace, show your lighting setup and results, and Ron will
examine your submissions and will explain what you need to do to
improve your work. All the "elements" that comprise a
great portrait image will be discussed so that you can put all the
elements together to create consistently awesome work as Ron does.
Best of all, it's a business write off.
Time for a update from Ron Kramer:
to word of mouth by my students, PortraNET has grown far beyond my
expectations. I honestly felt I would have 12-15 members by the end
of the first year. Instead I had 96. It has grown since then to 18
students joining during December and 30 YES THIRTY new students
joining during the month of January. I also want to point out
that while it would be good business for me to offer my students
enticements for referring new students to PortraNET, I want to be
sure that their referrals to non members are 100% honest and from the heart, and
not done for personal gain. So even though I would love to thank
them in some way, I do not and will not offer any sort of referral program.
REFERRALS AND COMMENTS YOU SEE HERE ARE BECAUSE STUDENTS TRULY LOVE
PORTRANET AND FIND IT THE BEST VALUE IN THE INDUSTRY.
But what is more exciting is not only do current students now get a huge amount of content on what I do and how I do it. But as a added BONUS that no one planned on, you get to learn from PortraNET associate instructors FREE with your PortraNET enrollment. I retired from 25 years of photographing weddings, but Portraiture training will improve every wedding photographers work. When I started PortraNET I didn't plan on any wedding content. But my daughter was married in the summer of 2004 and I documented the process of shooting her wedding quite heavily with videos of Pre Wedding day bridle sessions (2) and the photography of the wedding day itself. Hours of video and instruction all as a bonus.
We all know when starting in this business that shooting weddings is a must to help pay the bills. So I have added the support of Associate Instructors as a free bonus to my students who want to venture into that area or improve their current wedding coverage.
Our "Bonus" Associate instructors are available at no extra cost to you:

Kevin will reveal his non posing way of making brides look beautiful and will reveal his photojournalistic style of the "art of the wedding day". "Photojournalistic wedding" doesn't have to be a dirty word... You can use fine portrait skills in directing your photojournalistic style images! Kevin is a past student of mine here at PortraNET, as he wanted to go back to learn my building blocks of fine portraiture to adapt to his award winning wedding work. Students will see videos from Kevin as well as documentation photos and pull back shots of Kevin's weddings coming up in Cancun and Hawaii.|
