"Expanding Professional Practices in Photography"

Robert Dickes (T&L)

Thursday, March 05 - 1:00PM to 1:45PM
Plaza I

Traditionally, senior seminar classes cover the standard practices of being a professional artist. This talk will introduce additional material that students need to survive the modern photographic economy, including owning their own studio, finding photographic jobs, making client-driven work, and employment as a photographer. We will discuss expanding professional practice classes to include interviewing skills, advanced portfolio development, networking, business writing, and entrepreneurship. As part of this presentation, I will introduce methods to combine both artistic and commercial approaches in order to elevate our industry with better thinkers and to create opportunities for beginning artists.
