Erica will teach at the TPW. Her workshop is for commercial photographers who would like to revamp their portfolio, and give more strength to their work in order to get more focused assignments. It is also designed for young photographers with a strong personal vision entering the business world, and that would like to keep and apply that vision while working in the commercial field.
