Pricing Your Work In Today’s Market – May 18

Pricing Your Commercial and Fine Art Work In Todays Market with Judy Herrmann


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.

Early Registration is closed after May 15th.

The Big Brain Meeting May 24 2017

RSVP here.

Why Should I Join a Brain Trust?
One of the main reasons people join ASMP is for community and for support with the challenges of working as a professional photographer. ASMPNY’s Brain Trust groups provide a structure for this type of connection and information. At the moment there are 11 Brain Trust groups meeting under the auspices of ASMPNY.

What Is a Brain Trust?
It’s a peer group within ASMPNY for feedback, answers and support. Photographers meet on a regular basis to share information and help each other with their careers. The regular get-togethers provide an opportunity to learn and have questions answered, as well as help provide connections to a broader community of photographers.

What Is The Big Brain Meeting?
An overview of how ASMPNY’s Brain Trust program works, an opportunity to bring a real-life issue to the group, and an opportunity to join a group. At this introductory meeting, as an example of what might come up in a typical Brain Trust group, we will explore a specific issue of concern. If you have a question you would like to ask relating to the art or business of photography please bring it along.

Issues to consider include:
Contracts, copyright, negotiating, pricing, marketing, working with assistants, finding affordable and reliable resources, and staying on track with goals. At the end of the evening anyone attending will have the opportunity to join a Brain Trust group.

This is a member only event.
