Kibbee owns and operates Artisan Portrait in the small Northwest town of Post Falls, Idaho. His (mostly) one-man studio specializes in high school senior portraits yet maintains a fine reputation for family and children’s portraits as well. After ten years photographing for two reputable studios, countless seminars, conventions and the keen guidance of mentors, Kibbee is nearing his fifth year of business in his own studio.
The studio maintains an active presence on social networks and believes strongly that it’s a key strategy to a successful senior portrait business. During After Dark photo sessions, Kibbee will be using a variety of Larson products to demonstrate the lighting and posing techniques he uses every day to create images that sell. He’s a firm believer in retouching techniques that not only work well but fast and will be sharing some of his favorite tips to help speed up your workflow. He’ll also be sharing info in business pods on the studio’s senior model program and its most exciting Facebook marketing idea for the senior market, the FREE PROFILE PICTURE DAY.
Kibbee is honored to be part of the After Dark mentor team and is excited for a fun, inspirational, and exhaustive few days of sharing strong business and photography principles that can help you in your business today.
