March 22, Sarasota: MVS Presenting Marketing Lecture at Ringling College

March 22, 2015
3:00 pmto5:00 pm

ASMP Greater Florida Chapter + Ringling College of Art & Design
Understanding the Value of Your Work Within Multiple Markets
Social prior to lecture: 2:30 PM

One of the most exciting recent developments for photographers is the growth of new markets for their work. It is increasingly common to see photographs made by collectible artists step beyond their gallery’s walls to be featured as illustration within powerful graphic design.  Whether a fine print is shown in a museum setting or in a corporate office, reproduced as book cover illustration or featured within product advertising, the value of that photograph is different for each buyer. In this seminar, noted author/educator Mary Virginia Swanson will demystify new markets and assess the role photography plays within them.  She will discuss how to identify new buyers of images who are likely to respond to the style/content of your work, and the most effective approaches when introducing yourself and your photography.  Swanson will guide you in assessing the value of your work within today’s diverse photography marketplace, and coach you on considerations artists must be mindful of when taking their artwork across multiple markets.

  • $5 ASMP members pre-register

March 26, Tucson: MVS Presenting Sponsorship Lecture

March 26, 2015

Sustaining Your Long-Term Project: Fundraising, Sponsorship and Creative Focus

Time and cost will be announced soon.

Many photographers engage in creative projects that live within them for years, continuing work towards completion as funding allows.  Others are intent on finishing a specific project that requires travel or other resources for completion.  No matter what the parameters are for growing and concluding your project, securing time and support on many levels is essential.

In this presentation, Mary Virginia Swanson will describe the path to successful fundraising to support the completion and subsequent publication & exhibition of your photography projects.  She will help artists understand how to research, identify and connect with like-minded individuals, organization and foundations who share a passion for your subject. The monetary grants available through corporate & private foundations and government agencies will be discussed, as well as the value of partnering with a fiscal agent for foundation support, in-kind donations, and sponsorship.  Throughout the lecture Ms. Swanson will share resources for fundraising and describe her research methodology to secure financial support for your photography project to reach the broadest possible audience.
