It’s mind boggling when you think of all the online galleries, portals, and social media sites photographers use to market their work: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram,  Behance, Flickr, AtEdge, FoundFolios, Workbook, Dripbook, Le Book, 500px, Altpick, The Creative Finder, One Eyeland, Production Paradise……ok we’ll stop now. The problem with all of these is that your work is displayed in a generic, cookie-cutter format where it’s easy for the art buyer to skip along from one photographer to the next. Wouldn’t it be great if there was a place where you controlled the viewer’s experience and conveyed your personal vision & brand? There is…it’s called your website.

Join APA/SD for a discussion and in depth look at photographer websites.  We’ll figure out what works and what doesn’t.  Attendees are invited to submit sites for review.   Attendance is limited to 15, so reserve your spot today.

Date:  August 20th, 2014
Time: Doors open at 6:30,  Event starts at 7:00
Location: The luxurious & air conditioned Riverdale Studios
6314 Riverdale Street, San Diego, 92120

APA | SD presents: Portfolio Review Roundtable | April 30th, 2014

Has your portfolio devolved into an anthology?
A retrospective?
A portfolio has one purpose and that’s to get you work. Every image that doesn’t show your vision dilutes it.

This roundtable will start with a brief tour of Clearstory: an affordable, custom, book-publishing company based here in San Diego. There will be samples of their printing and a representative will be available to answer your questions about how Clearstory can make your next book stand out and display your images in the best way.The roundtable will continue with an informal discussion of what works, what doesn’t, and how to go about editing and sequencing a book

The first six people to sign up will get 10 minutes each to show their current print book (or online version) for a peer review. We encourage everyone to bring their book to share whether or not you are chosen to present.

Don’t miss out! Clearstory will hand out $25 OFF custom portfolio coupons to ALL attendees. One lucky attendee will win a FREE custom photo book with a value of $250.00!!!
