On a Panel at Adorama

The Business of Photography: Staying on Point-Getting Ready for 2012-New Year, New Ideas Stop Looking in the Rearview Mirror and Just Drive the Car!

Course Description:
As the year 2011 draws to a close, this round table panel (minus the table) assembled (not the table) and moderated by Louisa Curtis of Chatterbox Enterprises, is destined to be revealing as well as informative.
How does a photographer continue to “stay keen” and what sort of a plan should they be making for 2012? What do they need to do to stay on point and remain relevant in these changing times? What skills should they be sharpening and which should stay in the toolkit?
The panel is comprised of top photography professionals representing different areas of the industry who will be sharing their various insights and wisdom with us. The diverse group includes an Art Buyer, Creative Director, Photo Editors, a Producer and at least two Photographers.
After introductions to their backgrounds, Louisa will show some specific visual case studies provided by the panel, and then she will ask the panelists questions that are relevant and pertinent, from both the client’s and the photographer’s perspective.

Topics to be discussed include:
  • What makes a photographer stand out from the crowd in today’s saturated market?
  • How has the marketplace changed, and what do you anticipate seeing in the near future?
  • Do you intend to make changes in how you promote yourself and your business, and if so, what are they?
  • How much has “social networking” played a part in your promotions—and will you do more in the coming months?
  • What have you done specifically to successfully grow your business?
  • What topics does the panel see as most relevant now and into next year?
  • What’s your biggest prediction for 2012?
And there will also be ample time for the audience to ask questions during the discussion.

When? Tuesday, November 29, 2011 5:30PM - 8:00PM
Where? The Adorama Building, 42 West 18th Street.
Price: $25.00
