Arts + Business Partners (ABP) offers a variety of workshops (in person and virtual) geared towards collectors, photographers and anyone interested in learning more about the fine art photography marketplace.

Our workshop options range from a 5-session collecting ‘bootcamp’, to an intensive branding workshop for photographers looking to break into the marketplace, to a 2-hour seminar diving “Inside the Collector’s Mind” or exploring "How to Find a Gallery for Your Work." Each is its own master class.

Taught by Alice Sachs Zimet, an educator, collector and advisor active in the field for 35+ years and who has amassed a collection of nearly 350 photographs from 20th Century masters to the present. Zimet’s expertise and passion for fine art photography has engaged roughly 800 students from across Europe, Asia and the United States. 

Current workshops are offered with Christie’s Education, Swann Auction Galleries, the International Center of Photography, Maine Media Workshops + College, the Los Angeles Center of Photography, among others.
