"The Shark Tank: Photography Book Edition"

Colleen Mullins and Bruce Myren (T&L)

Thursday, March 09 - 2:00PM to 2:45PM
Orlando IV

In this dynamic presentation, we will recreate an episode of the television program Shark Tank, in which we will examine the publication options for one photographer, on the verge of publishing a photography book. The tables are turned, and the "Shark" becomes the photographer, with investment money, and the "Entrepreneurs" are series of publishing industry models, presented in the first-person, as a business seeking investment by a photographer. Is it "the way publication is done now," or will this apples-to-apples on-stage comparison, where an artist deigns to discuss market capitalization for themselves, make one think twice before seeking publication?
