ASMP workshop on today’s photo business set for August 11

                         
An American Society for Media Photographers workshop, “Contemporary Answers for Working in the New Economy,” is to be held from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on  Saturday, August 11 at the Contemporary Arts Center in New Orleans.

The workshop will be led by Bill Cramer, the CEO of Wonderful Machine, a marketing service for commercial photographers, and Gail Mooney, a photographer whose clients have included National Geographic, Smithsonian, and Travel & Leisure.

In the workshop, Cramer and Mooney will show how it is still possible to make a living in the photography business, as they have, despite the fact that the business has never been rougher or more competitive.

Workshop topics will include:

  • Business of video (Mooney) 
  • Pricing and Negotiating (Cramer) 
  • Branding and Marketing (Cramer) 
  • Social Media – Building your Audience, Crowd Funding and Distribution (Mooney) 

After the workshop, Mooney and Cramer will casually review as many participant portfolios as time will allow. All attendees are welcome to stay, listen and learn. Portfolios reviewed may be printed or brought on a laptop or iPad.

For more information, please see the ASMP workshop page.
