Find Your Photography Braintrust

Big Brain

Join One of ASMPNY’s Brain Trust Groups to Find Answers and a Network of Peers
This Big Brain meeting provides an overview of how ASMPNY’s Brain Trust peer groups work and gives you an opportunity to join a group that fits your interests and your schedule.
Are you looking for real world perspective on contracts, copyright, negotiating, pricing, marketing, working with assistants, finding affordable and reliable resources, or any other issues relating to the art and business of photography? Do you need support in staying on track with your goals? In ASMPNY’s BrainTrust peer groups, 6-10 photographers meet on a regular basis to share information and help each other with their careers. Not only do the regular get-togethers provide an opportunity to learn and have questions answered, but the groups help provide connections to a broader community of photographers.

Assemble Your Team


Wednesday, May 25

Fulton Studios

The event is free for members of ASMP; $20 for non-members.
Participants may bring portfolios to show during the structured networking part of the event.

• 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.
View the list of reviewers (in progress).
