Presenting Your Work to the Fine Art Market with Aline Smithson
Sat, May 20, 2017, 9:30 AM – Sun, May 21, 2017, 4:30 PM EDT
This two day workshop will help participants garner a deeper understanding of the Fine Art Photography Market and learn best practices for presenting work. Aline will help photographers prepare for portfolio reviews, consider submissions to calls for entry, and most importantly she will work on the articulation, sequencing, and presentation of projects. From her experience of sitting on both sides of the reviewing table and from her insights as a juror, Aline will demystify the experience and consider all aspects of what surrounds the making photographs--bios, statements, leave-behinds, and web sites --in order to prepare participants for taking next steps into the fine art photography world, especially important in a time where everyone has a camera.
After a career as a New York Fashion Editor and working along side the greats of fashion photography, Aline Smithson discovered the family Rolleiflex and never looked back. An artist now represented by galleries in the U.S. and Europe and published throughout the world, Aline continues to create her award-winning photography with humor, compassion, and a 50-year-old camera.
Aline founded and writes the blogzine, Lenscratch, that celebrates a different contemporary photographer each day and offers opportunity for exhibition. She has been the Gallery Editor for Light Leaks Magazine, a contributing writer for Diffusion, Don’t Take Pictures, Lucida, and F Stop Magazines, has written book reviews for photoeye, and has provided the forwards for artist’s books by Tom Chambers, Flash Forward 12, Robert Rutoed, Nancy Baron, Meg Griffiths amongst others.
Morning and afternoon snacks and lunch provided Saturday and Sunday, beverages available all day.
Transportation and lodging not included but suggestions and information will be provided at time of registration.
Workshop limited to 12 participants
Registration Fee: This covers the cost for a workshop. There are NO additional Administration Fees, Studio, Materials or Model Fees. It’s all included.
Attendees are responsible for transportation and lodging unless notified.
Cancellations: To cancel a workshop registration and receive a refund, notify us at least 30 days before the start date of your workshop. If we are given the required 30 days notice, we will refund your payments less the cancellation fee. No refunds will be issued for cancellations made within 30 days of the start of the workshop. It is our policy to send documentation of the refund for your records.
Transfers: You may transfer from one workshop to another or from one housing option to another, space permitting. To do so, please notify us at least 30 days before the start of your workshop or housing reservation and pay a $25 transfer fee. Registrations are not transferable to another person.
Waiting Lists: When a workshop fills, we start a waiting list. There is no charge to be on the waiting list. If space becomes available, we contact the first person on the list. That person then has 48 hours to register before we move on to the next person. If a space becomes available within 30 days of the start of a workshop, the registrar may contact all those on the waiting list and the space will be given to the first person to register.
If The SE Center Cancels a Workshop: Please register early! Registration is ongoing, on a space-available basis. Students who wait to register may not be able to secure a spot in their preferred workshop. Some workshops may fill up, while others may be cancelled due to low enrollment.
Occasionally, The SE Center must cancel a workshop due to low enrollment, faculty illness or other unforeseen circumstances. We will notify you if a workshop for which you have registered has been cancelled. Notification of cancellation will normally occur at least one month prior to the beginning of the workshop but, in rare cases, it may be less. You may then enroll in another workshop (based on availability) or receive a full refund of tuition. The SE Center is not responsible for losses incurred due for lodging, travel or other arrangements.
