MEDTECH BUSINESS IN PHOTOGRAPHY CLASS

On 29th June 2013, UTP MEDTECH Club held a Business in Photography Class at Block 23-02-10. This class was opened to the public and we invited a professional speaker to give us the talk and provide and in-class technical training. The speaker was Mr Adnan Hassan, the owner of De Pixel in Taman Maju, Tronoh. He started getting involved in the photography business at the early age of 10, and after graduating university he went on to works with the local newspaper Berita Harian and News Straits Times as a professional photographer and writer. He has a wide experience in the business photography industry and we were honoured to have had some of his knowledge passed on to us.

10 students and 1 staff joined this class. The class started at 9am and adjourned at 1.40pm. The topics covered in this class were how to take memorable shots, and what kind of business a photographer can find himself in the booming photo industry. Furthermore, we later learned the art of instant shot processing and printing to attract more customers and what kind of events that we can take advantage of to start our business. Besides that, Mr Adnan taught us the basic equipment needed to start our own business and prices we can fix on our products and services.

It was truly a knowledgeable class that inspired many of us to generate more ideas to be successful young entrepreneurs in the photography industry.
