Collecting Photography Intensive: Spend Two Days in NYC including Behind-the-Scene visits! (Session 2 of 2)

September 28, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 6:00 pm

Kickstart your photography collection and increase your confidence with this non-stop, fact-filled two-day ‘bootcamp‘, offered by Maine Media, with collecting tips, how to care for your collection and behind-the-scene gallery visits.

Day #1 (Friday, 10-5) is classroom-style held at the instructor’s home (surrounded by a private collection) and includes a 200+ slide presentation providing an overview of today’s marketplace: issues before spending a penny, questions to ask, where to shop, pricing, stamps, signatures, editions, dealing with galleries, buying at auction and tons of insider tips from a pioneer collector! We’ll also discuss how to insure and appraise your photographs, keep proper records and ‘best practices’ to safely frame your images.

Day #2 (Saturday, 11-6) we hit the road and go behind-the-scenes to visit some of New York’s most prominent photography galleries. We’ll meet the dealers and look at work up close to ask those questions you’ve always wanted to ask!

This workshop is for the beginner to more seasoned collector, or the photographer looking to better understand the marketplace. Optional Dutch Treat drinks conclude Saturday’s visits. Abundant handouts provided.

This Collecting Intensive takes place on a consecutive Friday (classroom), 10am to 5pm, and Saturday (gallery visits), 11am to 6pm.
