The mission of Phoenix Black Photographers (PBP) is to provide opportunities for photography-related social networking, skill-building and community involvement for black photographers in the metro-Phoenix area.
PBP aims to…
1. Provide a forum for black photographers, from amateur to professional, to meet, discuss, share and shoot
2. Provide informational and hands-on training opportunities for members to improve their photography skills
3. Support efforts that bring exposure to and recognize the achievements of the photographers within its membership
4. Educate ourselves and the greater community about the works of notable black photographers past and present
5. Reach out to minority youth in an effort to foster a life-long appreciation for the art of photography
6. "Give back" to the community through artistic contributions and volunteer activities
Advertising of Products & Services
In fairness to our members, PBP has a no-spam policy. PBP prohibits unsolicited or otherwise inappropriate direct advertising of products and/or services to its members in email communications or through message board posts. PBP administrators reserve the right to remove any member from the group who violates this policy. If you or your organization is interested in advertising through PBP, please click here to submit a request to become an approved sponsor. Sponsorship requests are reviewed by PBP administrators and approved on a case by case basis.
Lastly, understanding that it may be challenging for many of us to narrow down choices and determine what constitutes "best work" images, please consider the following:
- Review the lighting, composition, and exposure. Are all technically well-executed?
- Determine how you can tell an interesting story in as few images as possible.
- What kind of response do you want from viewers? Do you want to please them, challenge them, shock them? Is the image successful in creating that response?
- If a similar image has already been uploaded, have you made your image "your own" by showing a style, perspective and or technique that makes it unique?
- Get the opinion of other people about your images.
We appreciate your adhering to this policy. With a little "letting go" we'll all acquire the necessary skill of self-critiquing our work as well as improve our ability to understand what constitutes a successful photograph.
