Next week I head to Texas. I’ve been invited by the Houston chapter of the ASMP to present a seminar, workshop, and private consulting sessions in Houston, TX  Jan. 29-Jan. 31, 2015.

I’ll be presenting an all-new version of my “ReBooting Your Business Brain” photo marketing talk at TexCam in Houston.

Both the seminar and the workshops will focus on the business of photography and what photographers need to do to attract new clients in the 21st century.  I’ve presented this talk at various other photo trade organizations over the last 6 years and am always updating it to reflect the fast-moving world of photo marketing.  But this will be my first half-day workshop which will go deeper into the materials presented in the evening seminar.

More information and registration links are on the ASMP Houston site. Go here.


It’s that time of year again: I’m heading to New York City to attend Photo Plus Expo at the end of October 2014. Bonus: this year the convention will be over Halloween weekend–one of the most visually interesting places on earth to be on Halloween is NYC!

More info is on my BLOG page.


This month, I’ll be once again doing many portfolio reviews at PhotoPlusExpo in NYC Oct. 24-26th.

You can find me doing free portfolio reviews for members at the ASMP booth as well as providing portfolio reviews for the Palm Springs Photo Festival in PhotoPlus. Note: The Palm Springs sessions are already fully booked for all reviewers but their wait list opens on Oct 15th.

I’ll also be reviewing at one other location–to be revealed closer to show time. Hope to see you there!


Today, June 12, 2012 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm several art buyers from top Chicago ad agencies, along with yours truly, will be editing photographers portfolios at APA Midwest’s Digital Portfolio Review .

I’m looking forward to meeting some new Chicago-area commercial photographers and seeing some great images. It’s always a treat to be blown away by someone’s work who I’ve never met or heard of. Happens every time. Wonder who it will be tonight?

It’s being held at Digital Bootcamp/Portfolio Annex, 25 W. Hubbard, Chicago IL 60654.

More info about tonight’s event is on the APA Midwest’s website.


It’s that time of year again. Time for  Photo Plus Expo  which is the huge annual photography trade show being held in NYC Oct. 27 through Oct. 29th, 2011 at the Javits Center. And, once again, I’ll be doing free portfolio reviews for ASMP at their booth #1276.

My sessions will be on Thurs. afternoon, Oct. 27th, 2011.

You can sign up for a session here. If all my session times are booked up, just shoot me an email with “PPE portfolio review” as the Subject line, and I’ll see if I can fit you in while I’m there.

Sometimes, we reviewers have no-shows e.g., when a photographer forgets when their appointment is because they’re all engrossed at an exhibitor booth seeing some cool new camera gear 😉 So I’d like to make sure anyone who wants a review can fill in if there’s a no show.

I may also be doing reviews at another location during PhotoPlus and will do a blog post about that opportunity by Oct. 14th with more details.
