There are a few spaces left in my annual workshop at Maine Photo Workshops in Rockport. Class starts at 6 p.m. on Wednesday August 1, concludes on Saturday August 4th at noon.
The course description:
Mary Virginia Swanson will provide insights into the most effective avenues for introducing your work to the gallery and museum professionals. She will discuss the value of the national and international juried exhibitions, as well as portfolio review events as realistic avenues to industry professionals. Important gallery trade shows will be discussed from the perspective of helping artists to determine which dealers will be most appropriate for their work. Effective self-promotion materials will be shared with participants, as well as visuals providing insights into portfolio review events towards making the most of your participation. Professional practices necessary to successfully present your work will be discussed, as well as “talking points” when given the opportunity to sign with a gallery for representation. Participants will also gain awareness about granting the rights to reproduce your images, copyright and negotiation. There will be a session for group portfolio sharing, and the course workbook, Ms. Swanson’s book, Business of Photography: Principles and Practices (2007) will be provided to participants.
