Have you ever wondered why Andreas Gursky's images of the Prada Store are considered fine art and sell for tens of thousands of dollars while your images are considered commercial photographs?

The world of fine art photography is transforming as rapidly as the commercial marketplace. You can take advantage of this time of change to develop multiple revenue streams to support your business while, at the same time, keeping your vision fresh and alive. Creating and properly marketing a body of fine art work can be instrumental in achieving these goals.

What is a fine art photograph? Where do you market your fine art work? How do you reach that market, present your work, and create marketing materials and a Web site?

Join us in Detroit on Thursday, January 17th for a stimulating session with Thomas Werner, who will address those questions and more. Werner, a New York gallerist, professor of art, and a founder of ASMP's Fine Art Specialty Group, is strongly positioned to provide insight into the business of fine art photography, and explain how you can take advantage of this exciting opportunity.

Werner will talk about how you can build a relationship with a gallery, and what happens when you get an exhibition. Werner will also help you identify what your goals should be, and how to maximize results based on those expectations.

So whether you're an emerging photographer looking to enhance your career, or an established veteran exploring new revenue options, be sure to bring a fellow photographer, artist or other interested party and join us in January for an insightful exposition of the business of fine art photography.
