with Julie Grahame
26 Feb. - 1 Mar. 2020
Saga - Inderøy - Norway
How do you present and market your photography? Have you selected the right images to show on your website, and how is your social media presentation? Are you reaching the right audience? What about pricing, editions, copyright? How do you present work to galleries, or behave on a portfolio review. All this and more will be answered on our workshop with Julie Grahame.
This workshop is tailored to make you ready for the marketplace of photography, where the focus is to give you enough knowledge to manoeuvre professionally in this business. Whether your focus is commercial photography or fine art photography, Julie will guide you on your way so that your chances of succeeding and reaching your goals, are the very best.
During the course of the workshop you will learn what marketing tools will work for you, what is expected of you when you present work, how to present work in a professional matter, both in print, and digitally, and which venues, galleries, reviews, arenas your work is suited for.
Julie Grahame, who have worked with photographers for 25 years, and is the editor in Chief of aCurator Magazine will teach you how to really look at your work, assessing its strength and weaknesses, and make you analyse what your work is really about. In order to further develop your voice as a photographer, and fine-tune your style and vision, you need to know the roots of your work.
She will give you a realistic look at where and how to market your images, on- and off-line. She will review your website and social media presence, and make suggestions to improve your impact and make sure that your voice is visible in all your presentations. She will also look at editing and sequencing of your work, both on your website and portfolio presentations.
The students will get one-on-one time with Julie to help with any questions and concerns you might have on your work. This is a hands on workshop, where you will leave with a plan for your business and a to do list of improvements. There will be time during the workshop for you to start implementing Julies advice for your work, she might give assignments for you to finish during the week, and creative exercise that will help train your eye in selecting and sequencing work. There will also be group lectures with a strong focus on developing your brand as an creative artist.
