    Marketer's Toolkit #1 Photo Editing

    A library of good, balanced photography is one of the most important tools in a marketer’s toolkit. If you’ve ever been stuck producing proposals, award entries, or ads with nothing but a library of underwhelming imagery, then this session is for you. Come join us at this first of three “Marketer’s Toolkits” sessions and learn how to turn your lemons into lemonade.

    Speaker and architectural photographer Andrea Brizzi will teach attendees:

    • The ethics of retouching photography, including when retouching goes too far
    • The basics of retouching photography including: blemish removal, color correction and cropping
    • How to photograph a space with your phone (as a last resort…)

    This session will include live photo editing demonstrations, so e-mail for a chance to have your photo retouched in real time.

    We want to make sure this program covers what you want to know. If you have a relevant question or topic you’d like our speaker to address, let us know at


    Mr. Andrea Brizzi was born in Florence, Italy, where he later studied architecture. After traveling and living in over 50 countries, he moved to New York in 1977 where he began specializing in photographing architecture and interiors. Today, Andrea is based in both Honolulu and New York working with architects, designers, engineers, builders, and developers.

    An early adopter of digital photography, Andrea is grateful that, while in real life he is often at the mercy of uncontrollable forces, in Photoshop he can “feel god-like.”
