• A Panel Discussion Among Fashion Industry Photographers, Hair and Makeup Artists, and Modeling Professionals

• An Opportunity to Connect with Fellow Creatives, Form Teams, and Start Developing Test Shoots and Other Projects

• Photographers, Hair and Makeup Artists, and Models are Invited to Attend

The stand-out photos that spring from the fashion pages almost always reflect the work of a team of talented contributors. ASMPNY’s Assemble Your Team event will look at how photographers, models, and hair and makeup artists work as teams. It will also provide the opportunity to meet and connect with fellow creatives looking to bring their portfolios to the next level. Photographers, hair and makeup artists, models, and assistants are all encouraged to attend.

The program will include a panel discussion with professional hair and makeup artists, a booker, a model and a photographer and will also feature structured networking that will allow collaborators to show their work and form teams. Participants are asked to bring portfolios to share and anticipate joining a team to develop test shoots and other projects.

Everyone who attends the event will be listed in a resource directory that will be shared with all participants as well as to a broader audience of ASMPNY’s member photographers.

Student Portfolio Review

ASMPNY Student Portfolio Review
Friday, April 29 • 6 to 9 pm • YWCA • 30 Third Avenue, Brooklyn (map)
ASMPNY’s free Student Portfolio Review is is a great opportunity for current students and recent graduates to get their work in front of constructively critical eyes from leading magazines, galleries, photo agencies, and corporations as well as curators, individual artists, and critics (click below to see our growing list of reviewers). The event will be held in Brooklyn, New York, but students and recent graduates (less than a year out of school) from schools throughout the Northeast are welcome.
Other professional-level portfolio reviews often involve fees of hundreds of dollars to see only 3 or 4 reviewers of the caliber we’ll have reviewing, so you don’t want to miss this free chance to show these same prestigious folks your work without the high price tag. You’ll also get the chance to meet and network with your fellow peers, who will become an invaluable resource as you foster and build professional relationships.
Both digital and print display methods will be accepted, and participants will have 10 minutes with each reviewer. Doors open at 6:00 p.m., with a reception until 6:45 p.m., at which time reviews will begin. The reviewing process will promptly end at 9:00 p.m.

A Conversation with Robert Herman: The Phone Book, December 1


With Guest Moderator Mario Estrada

Join New York City street photographer Robert Herman for a conversation and question and answer session to celebrate the release of The Phone Book, his highly anticipated collection. On the heels of The New Yorkers, his debut collection of a decade’s worth of restored Kodachrome photos all taken in New York, The Phone Book flips the script. It’s Herman’s first iPhone-only photo book, taken all over the world using the Hipstamatic app. Mario Estrada from Hipstamatic and Snap Magazine will moderate the discussion.

Robert Herman has been a street photographer since his days as an NYU film student in the late 1970s. His love of light and color, and making images that find the transcendent in the seemingly mundane, continues with the release of The Phone Book, his newest collection of photographs shot throughout the globe, on his iPhone using the Hipstamatic app. His photos of New York City shot between the years 1978-2005 on Kodachrome are featured in his first monograph, The New Yorkers.

Mario Estrada is an integral partner at Hipstamatic and Snap Magazine where he focuses on content creation, strategy, events, partnerships and social branding. Aside from being known for creating brunch-inspired events, Estrada is a highly respected art director and photographer. He earned a BFA, in Graphic Design, Spanish, Art History and Photography at the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point and Madison. He resides in San Francisco and New York City.

FREE TOUR: Jacob A. Riis: Revealing New York’s Other Half, December 2


His images still shock – and demand our attention. Through his pioneering photojournalism, Jacob A. Riis illuminated the squalid living conditions of New York City’s poor, from the cellars of Ludlow Street to the barracks of Mott Street at the turn of the 20th century.

On Wednesday, December 2nd, the Museum of the City of New York will offer ASMPNY members a free tour of: Jacob A. Riis: Revealing New York’s Other Half given by curator Bonnie Yochelson.

Called “heart-rending” by the New York Times, this exhibition provides a unique lens for viewing New York City’s persistent struggles with inequality. It also serves as a precursor to the museum’s exhibition Affordable New York: A Housing Legacy, with Riis as one of the city’s early champions of housing reform. His photos, articles, and illustrated lectures of the slums prompted fellow reformer Theodore Roosevelt to call Riis “New York’s most useful citizen.”

This is the first major retrospective of Riis’s photographic work in the U.S. in more than six decades, and for the first time unites his photographs and his archive, which belongs to the Library of Congress and the New York Public Library. ASMPNY is a proud Co-Sponsor of MCNY’s series of public events examining the legacy of Jacob Riis.

Wed, December 2 • 3:30 pm
Museum of the City of New York
1220 Fifth Avenue (at 103rd Street)

PLEASE NOTE: Attendance is limited to 30 ASMPNY members, on a first-come, first-served basis. Please register only if you are sure you can attend. Click here to register for the exhibition tour.
