Our local ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) chapter will be hosting a new series of lectures entitled “More Than Surviving the Market”. The program is designed so that photographers can share their experiences to help manage a changing marketplace.

The first installment will be about “Producing the Shoot.” Rick Gayle along with stylist Kim Krejca will demonstrate how a creative team can collaborate successfully. It can make the difference between an average shot and an award winning image.

The event will be held at Markow Southwest – Rick Gayle Studio, Inc. from 5:30 to 8:30 on April 29th. Admission is free for members or $5 for non-members. For more information, or to RSVP that you wish to attend please visit the ASMP website.

“Producing the Shoot” — April 29th

Featuring veteran photographer and Phoenix Chapter member Rick Gayle and Phoenix stylist Kim Krejca.

“Producing a Shoot” — (or ‘why can’t I do it all myself… but if I have to, what do I do now?’)

What makes a good photo shoot?

What makes it better?

How do abstract concepts become well executed photographs? How do you evaluate the layout and bring a concept to life? What do you do when there isn’t one?

Why shouldn’t you do everything yourself? If you have to, what should you pay attention to?

How does a stylist work?

What can a stylist bring to a photo shoot? What should a photographer expect from a stylist? What does a stylist want to know from a photographer? If you’re shooting food, why can’t the chef do the photo styling? What the heck should you do when the client says “I can’t afford a stylist”…?
