ICP Fall 2018 Classes

We’re happy to be back with three workshops for collectors and photographers.

Collecting Photography 101: Everything You Need to Know! – October 3, 2018 – April 11, 2019 (9 sessions)

Nine 3-hour sessions to help the beginner to more seasoned collector better understand the photography marketplace.  We start in the classroom discussing how collectors build collections including the questions to ask, where to shop, pricing, stamps, signatures, editions, dealing with galleries, buying at auction and navigating everything in between. We then hit the road with site visits to the annual AIPAD photo fair, an auction preview, and behind-the-scene visits to galleries where we meet the dealers and look at work up close.  The final class includes a visit (over dinner) to the leader’s private collection. Insider tips and hands-on ‘looking assignments’ round out the experience.

Making Work … Now What?  Getting Out into the Art World – December 8 & 9 (2 sessions)

The popular weekend workshop returns to help photographers get work out into the art market!  We begin by going ‘inside the collector’s mind’ to better understand where collectors shop and the issues they face in building a collection:  buying at auction, dealing with galleries, pricing, editioning as well as questions collectors regularly ask.  We’ll also offer advice on how to approach a gallery and how to best present at a portfolio review.  Because how you write and speak about your work is as important as making it, we analyze your communication tools, both written and verbal, including your business card and ‘elevator speech’.
