This week I took part in an amazing panel discussion on the business of Photography at Santa Monica College. Organized by the venerable Mr. Anthony Nex, along with my co-panelists Shelly Waldman, Katie Cornett and Dennis Dunbar, we covered many topics from what inspires us and what motivates us, to what downright frustrates us.
Freelancing is a roller coaster ride and for me personally, seeing how my fellow professionals deal with the same daily challenges, was enlightening. I hope the students got as much out of it as I did!
We were really just the warm up act for an amazing presentation by Thomas Werner on the business of Fine Art Photography. It’s the second time I’ve got to experience one of Thomas’s in-depth presentations, and all I can say is, if you ever get the chance, jump at it. So much valuable information. What I love most about his lectures is it really feels like you’re back in school, listening to your favorite lecturer tell it like it is! Thanks again Anthony for putting on a great event.
