February 28-29, 2020

Kick-start your collection and increase your confidence with this fact-filled two-day “boot camp.” Day 1 we spend in the classroom, discussing the questions to ask, where to shop, pricing, stamps, signatures, editions, dealing with galleries, buying at auction, and tons of insider tips. Housekeeping advice includes how to insure and appraise your photographs, frame your work, and keep proper records. Day 2 includes behind-the-scenes visits to galleries, where we meet dealers and look at photographs up close.

A Peek Behind the Curtain: Inside the Photo Galleries

March 20-21, 2020

Geared toward photographers (and curious collectors), this class goes behind the scenes to learn the inner workings of photography galleries. We meet with dealers to discuss pricing, written agreements, expectations, and other practical matters, as well as how they find new talent. Day 1 is classroom-style: we focus on how to brand yourself and your communications tools and engage in a class critique of your business card and “elevator pitch.” Day 2, we hit the road and meet the dealers! Note: Day 1 (classroom style) takes place at the instructor’s home, a 1929 landmarked building, surrounded by her private photo collection.
