ASMP Seminar - Photographers Helping Photographers featuring Jenna Close

This event will foster new — and realistic — ideas for your business. In these challenging economic times, Jim Cavanaugh, Jenna Close and Ed McDonald have all found answers for their businesses. Cavanaugh is rapidly expanding his client base with modest changes to his business approach and loads of direct marketing, Close focuses her business on one niche market and nurtures this approach into a sustainable future, and McDonald took an idea spawned by one client and made it a business reinvention. The successful results are inspiring to those just starting out and veterans looking for a place in our changing industry. Additionally, these events are a fundraiser for the Young Photographers Alliance (YPA), a mentoring organization for the next generation of photographers. Come out and hear a new business approach and know that your admission fee is helping the next generation of image makers. The evening is truly about "Photographers Helping Photographers."

Jenna Close grew up wanting to be an actor, a world traveler or a truck driver. At one point she found herself volunteering in Africa during a break from her theatre career, and that's where she first picked up a camera. From then on photography became a way of documenting her acting destinations (both exotic and mundane). Eventually, one bug replaced another and Jenna retired from theatre in order to attend the Art Institute of Seattle. Upon graduation she fled the clouds and landed in San Diego to soak up the sun and pursue a career. The result was P2 Photography and a newfound love of surfing. P2 specializes in imagery for the alternative energy industry, most specifically solar with a few electric vehicle companies thrown in for good measure. They were recently chosen as one of the Best of ASMP 2011. Jenna has yet to learn how to drive a Big Rig, but in the meantime she helps drive ASMP as a Director on the national board.

Doors open at 6:00pm, presenation starts at 7:00pm.
