Awareness and understanding of your creative rights is essential knowledge for any working artist. Knowledge of your Intellectual Property Rights, Copyright Law, and Artists’ Moral Rights gives you not only the tools to protect yourself in the marketplace, but an understanding that can help you to create more powerful and poignant artwork. Attorney Claudia Egan holds a special interest in helping artists manage ownership of their creative work.  She assists creatives in securing revenue and developing best business practices in licensing, services arrangements, and ventures. In this workshop, participants will gain an understanding of their creative rights, learn strategies for protecting those rights, discover how to maximize creative revenue, and how to analyze and manage legal risk within their creative practice. As an added benefit, Egan will provide a private consult to each paid attendee at the end of the program.

The iPhone is now one of the world's most frequently used cameras. Mark Stall teaches how to use your iPhone to capture good quality family, travel and event photographs. “I consider the iPhone my 'Digital Brownie Camera' due to the simplicity it offers. Unlike a Brownie, however, you can take, edit and share photos.” This workshops is for photographers at all levels, from beginners to experts interested in learning to use their iPhones as a camera for taking and post-processing photographs. In the workshop you will learn general photographic techniques as applied to the iPhone and how to use several powerful apps to improve and enhance your images (apps will need to be downloaded before the workshop). You can expect to walk away with expert tricks and tips, and a thorough set of handouts specifying sources and websites to continue your discovery of iPhoneography.

Mark Stall has been a photographer for over 40 years, and is in his second year teaching workshops at UW Waukesha Extension.
