The New Orleans Photo Alliance, in collaboration with the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), is pleased to present Mary Virginia Swanson’s FINDING YOUR AUDIENCE: A GUIDE TO MARKETING YOUR CREATIVE PHOTOGRAPHY at the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) on May 6, 2008, 7:00-9:00 p.m. This lecture will provide artists with a roadmap to getting their work in front of those with whom they most wish to share it. Doing one’s homework towards the contemporary art market, engaging in a dialogue with peers as well as one’s industry, and getting your work out are at the core of this presentation. The value of entering juried competitions and maximizing one’s investment in attending art fairs and portfolio review events will be discussed as well as effective promotional materials to keep in touch with those on your mailing list. Lastly, the benefits of a multimedia presence today will be discussed, within a broader discussion about new markets for photographers.
Cost of attendance for “Finding Your Audience: A Guide to Marketing Your Creative Photography” is $20 for New Orleans Photo Alliance, ASMP, and CAC members and $25 for the general public. A special rate of $45 is being offered to those wanting to attend and join the New Orleans Photo Alliance.
