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.

Legendary photographer, Lois Greenfield, has created a body of remarkable images that stop dancers in flight. As she has written, “The ostensible subject of my photographs may be motion, but the subtext is time. A dancer’s movements illustrate the passage of time, giving it a substance, materiality, and space. In my photographs, time is stopped, a split second becomes an eternity and an ephemeral moment is solid as sculpture.” On November 1st, Lois Greenfield joined in conversation with Paul Galando, President of Dance Films Association and Founding Director of Dance and New Media at New York University’s Tisch School of the Arts, in which they discussed her new body of work as well as the inspiration, methods, and approaches that have motivated the creation of her groundbreaking images. The program is organized by The American Society of Media Photographers New York in collaboration with the Parsons School of Design at The New School. With support from Epson America. ~ Richard Lehun
