SIGMA CEO interview on their new approach

 I like the new Sigma approach to taking on Canon especially in coming up with competing or better niche lenses that do not exist.  Example are the 18 - 300mm C lens and the 150- 600mm C lens that is under $1000.  Great company to watch.

FINE ART GALLERY RESEARCH

From Susan May Tell

There isn’t any ASMP-friendly-gallery-list. Galleries are in business to make money and each gallerist establishes their brand for whom their audience is or wants it to be. Two great sources for photography exhibitions:

Pricing Your Work in Today’s Market

mid-town Manhattan (address will be emailed to attendees)
Instructor/Leader: Judy Herrmann

  • Advanced tickets required

    Barbara Nelson
    340 Haven Ave. (#3J)
    New York, NY 10033
The question most asked among visual artists of all genres and experience is “What should I charge”. This seminar will help you frame some guidelines.
For many still and motion photographers, pricing commercial assignments and fine art work has become a blind guessing game where you lose if you’re too high or if you’re too low. And, when you ask about pricing the answer always seems to be “it depends.” How can you figure out the fair market value of your work or what clients really want and value when it’s so hard to get answers?
In this exciting new seminar, Judy Herrmann tackles this question by sharing case studies, interviews and examples that will help you understand pricing from your clients’ and collectors’ perspectives, providing actionable tips you can start using right away, and showing you how to maximize your value and get paid what you’re worth. Time will be scheduled for Q&A.

Limited to 50 people.

FEE: $45.00 for PWP and ASMP Members, $55 for Non-Members
RSVP. bnelson2@earthlink.net
