Presenting Your Work to the Fine Art Market with Aline Smithson (One session)
- October 12, 2019
2:00 pm - 5:00 pm
The fine art photography world is ever changing and the days of simply creating stunning photographs is no longer enough to catch the eye of those in the photography world. All the elements that surround your photography projects: the project statement, your website, bio and resume, the knowledge of why you are making the work and the context of where it sits in photo history, in addition to the print quality, are all critical to your success in the contemporary fine art market.
Aline will demystify the fine art photography arena and speak to the shift towards moving work off the walls and onto the page. She will also share a wide array of venues and publications that promote photography and talk about projects that might be appropriate to particular arenas. Most importantly she will speak to the importance of how the photographer articulates work.
Participants will come to understand how statements can elevate work and learn of the wide array of venues that are looking for photographs. It has become harder for photographers to sell work and it is important to be proactive about getting work seen. Selected portfolios and websites will be shared. It is Aline’s goal to elevate participant’s thinking and presentations.
