What we're about
This group is for artists with cameras. Not all of us want to shoot weddings or high fashion. In fact, many of us have never considered ourselves professionals, or made money from photography. I started this group to discuss pursuing an art career in photography with other like-minded photo artists. This would include the pursuit of gallery shows, exhibitions and publication.
We will conduct free form discussions on building a fine are portfolio, developing strategies for projects, finding an art rep, approaching galleries and presentation. We will invite working photo artists, reps and art buyers to speak. We will share our work, conduct group critiques, discuss photo techniques, Photoshop and LightRoom tricks, enhancement filters and all other types of image manipulation apps. We will discuss self promotion, personal, branding, all social marketing platforms, and websites. This group is best for experienced photographers who have a point of view, a story and a vision for their work. Photographers should know their equipment and shoot with DSLRs. This is not a group for a beginner who shoots with a phone or a point and shoot camera.
Moderator is and has worked with all types of photographers for over 40 years, he’s done online tutoring, exhibited his work in galleries and created a widely accepted software for image manipulation.
This will be a monthly group initially and meet informally at coffee shops and small restaurants in the beginning. We photo artists need others to talk to. Hopefully this will be the start of something great.
