DETAILS: Join professional photogapher and videographer Baqi Kopelman to find out why posting good images is important for social media activities and how to curate or create share-worthy images. A share-worthy image is one that gets your target audience to respond by commenting, sharing, and visiting your website.

Most business owners know that in order to get engagement and drive traffic to your website, you not only need to post regularly on social media but also accompany your text with good images. This rule applies to all social media channels whether Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or other. But how can you get good images if you’re not a professional photographer?

Baqi will discuss the elements of a share-worthy image (such as telling a story and showing action) and how to create and/or curate great pictures for social media. Please bring your image-related questions for our Q&A after the presentation.


Baqi Kopelman

Having spent 20 years working in Hollywood and mainstream commercial media as a lighting director, director of photography, and photographer, Baqi Kopelman knows what it takes to create great images for social media. His technical experience and intuitive camera work is evident in the images he produces – redolent of beauty, grace, and emotion.
