September and October are always my busiest months of the year. Yours, too?
In September, I was super busy curating another iteration of the fine art photography exhibition Hope in the Dark: Refocused. Its opening reception was on Sept. 21st (the International Day of Peace). Again, it was a fundraiser for the benefit of social service agency, RefugeeOne. (I’ll do another post closer to the show’s Nov. 16th closing reception and include details and some of the images).
Video tutorial: To help photographers heading to NYC for PhotoPlusExpo (Oct 25th-Oct 27th) who have scheduled face-to-face portfolio reviews–either at Palms Springs PhotoFest at PPE or the APA NY reviews I was going to do a brand new version of my webinar “How to Create Presentations that Work” that I initially did last fall. But I ran out of time.
However, I asked ASMP if they would share the existing video again and they readily agreed. Check it out via the link in ASMP’s Strictly Business Blog to gain access.
I’ll again be doing portfolio reviews at the Palm Springs Photo Fest at PhotoPlus Expo (open to all who register and pay) on Wed., 10/24/18; Thurs., 10/25/18; and Fri., 10/26/18. My fellow portfolio reviewers often say that while most photographers may have photography talent, many are not fully prepared for face-to-face meetings. This webinar will hopefully help them fix that.
New this year: I’m also doing three free reviews for the first 3 photographers who make a donation during the show to the APA Copyright Protection Fund. at the APA booth (Booth #158) on Saturday, Oct. 27th. You can either donate at the APA booth or login into your APA account and send an email to Juliette Wolf-Robin, National Executive Director to indicate your intention to make a donation and get a free review.
I’ll be at PhotoPlus the whole time and am really looking forward to connecting with my consulting clients and old friends and colleagues. There’s nothing like hanging out in person with folks you don’t get to see but once a year.
I’ll also get to soak up some culture in one of my favorite cities. In addition to my annual visit to MOMA I’m going to check out a some fine art photography gallery exhibits. I’ll refer to the extensive listings guide in the great online photography publication The Eye of Photography to make my to-see list.
One of the best parts I love about NYC is actually just wandering around and taking in the sights, sounds, tastes, and visuals. There’s nothing like it.
Offer for my newsletter subscribers: Shoot me an email if you’re also going to be at PhotoPlus and would like to connect. Use the subject line: “PPE connect?” and include your cel#. If our calendars align, I’ll meet you for coffee in the Javits Center.
