Message from the Chair

We are excited to announce the 2018 SPEMA Chapter Pop Up which will be hosted and sponsored by Tyler School of Art on Saturday October 6. The theme for the retreat is Teaching Photography. 

The retreat will offer an array of talks, panels, demonstrations and a portfolio throwdown. On Friday October 5, the Tyler Photography Program is hosting a Vendor's Day and all participants in the SPEMA Chapter Pop Up are welcome to attend. 

Setting the model with this first event, we will pass along knowledge gained to anyone who wants to hold a similar event in their home school or venue.


We are looking for Speakers, Panelists and Panel Moderators for the following Panels:

SPEAKER 1: A Short history of Photography Programs 

PANEL #1 Curriculum Approaches                                                  

SPEAKER 2: Michelle Bogre, author of Photography 4.0                 

PANEL #2 The Assignment : Moderator: Dan Lobdell, York College

PANEL #3  So You Want to Teach : Strategies

PANEL #4 The Future: Issues and Debates in Photographic Education 

Please send an email with a short statement about which Panel you would like to be included on. All Panelists will be included in the exhibition at Tyler School of Art titled:

Teaching: A Conversation

This exhibition will be an image conversation between you and a student, or you and your mentor.

You are asked to choose one side of the conversation, as the student or as the mentor. If you choose the role of mentor, choose a student image to be printed and hung alongside your image. If you choose to be the student, an image of your mentors work will hang next to your image.

Tyler School of Art is donating free printing of all images. Each image will be printed using Photo Tex Adhesive materials. The selected photographers will each provide a high resolution file for us to print. Images will be adhered to the walls in the Photography Program galleries from September 17 – October 13, 2018.

Size: maximum long dimension of 36 inches.


Please send an email with which panel you are interested in to

We hope you will join the conversation about Teaching Photography on Saturday October 6!
