Calling all 2,055 photographers in this group! There are 2 important photography events happening on the same days: Saturday April 26 & Sunday April 27 and they're right across the street from each other.
Please know there is an admission fee for each event.
The first is Paris Photo LA held at Paramount Studios
Paris Photo is like Photo LA. Many galleries will set up on the lot and exhibit the photographers they sell or represent.
The second is Photo Independent at Raleigh Studios right across the street from Paramount Studios. This is the first year for Photo Independent and it's open to all photographers.
That's right, you can submit your work to Photo Independent to possibly display along with other photographers. But you have to hurry. They are accepting submissions only until Monday March 31 so get them in quickly!
I'll be showing some work and I thought some group members might want to submit and exhibit as well. If not, there will be plenty of photographers and their photographs to take in.
Think of the Photo Independent Exhibit as an amazing classroom where you can see the work and ask questions about it right then and there to the photographer. Ask the photographers about their printing techniques, their paper, photo size and resolution, camera settings and shooting technique, anything you might have a question about.
And at Paris Photo on the Paramount lot you can ask questions to the gallerists or curators. How do they choose the photographers to show or represent? How much of a cut do they make? How do they promote the photographers they are exhibiting? Ask away!
Do yourself a favor and check out Paris Photo and Photo Independent's websites. A lot of photographers will be coming. Why not you?
Note: This is an Open Event. If you want to go, check out the day and time that's good for you and attend. Go with friends. Enjoy!
