OVERVIEW:

Geared towards the beginner to the more seasoned collector or the curious photographerthis 5-part virtual series takes a deep dive into the photography market. During Session #1, Alice Sachs Zimet leads you through how she built her own 300-piece museum-quality collection followed by her top collecting ‘best practices’ developed over the last 35 years. We’ll cover where to shop, the questions to ask, and the pitfalls to avoid using real world situations and examples from the instructor’s own experience.

The sessions cover: Thoughts to Consider + the Questions to Ask Before Spending a Penny; The Marketplace; and How to Buy at Auction. We hit the road in Session #5 and virtually meet with two prominent photography galleries to hear from dealers on the business of running a gallery, how they work with the artists they represent and answer the questions you’ve always wanted to ask. After taking this class, you’ll be a more confident collector, savvier photographer and, no matter which, more knowledgeable about the marketplace.
