Who should attend? This workshop is an ideal overview for photographers wishing to promote their work to the fine art market with a goal of print sales and publication. If you haven’t yet completed a body of work, gaining insights on the industry at this stage is encouraged.
This workshop will provide participants with an overview of the fine art photography market and how one can effectively target galleries, collections and publishers most likely to respond to their work. An understanding of presenting work to industry professionals via competitions and portfolio review events, as well as the value of attending Gallery Expos will be discussed. Examples of successful promotional tools with be shared. I will bring to the workshop an extensive library of reference materials and examples of successful self-promotion examples to share with participants. The final session on Sunday morning will be on publishing your work, and will held at my home utilizing my personal library for discussion and demonstration.
