Creativity and Travel Photography with Nevada Wier


The New Mexico chapter of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers) is pleased to announce a Creativity and Travel Photography seminar with award-winning internationally recognized photographer Nevada Wier. The half day seminar will be held in Tipton Hall on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Photographing on the move in foreign countries requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity and a willingness to experiment with creative techniques”, says Nevada Wier, a specialist in travel photography. She will discuss how to combine technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to create an image that elevates itself above the usual travel clichés. The seminar will also focus on how to approach and creatively photograph people, cross-cultural considerations in foreign countries, working in difficult lighting, using natural light, fill-flash, tips on equipment, and digital concerns in the field.

The seminar is a fundraiser for THE FENCE, a large-scale photography exhibition reaching over 4 million visitors annually through open-air exhibitions in 7 cities across the United States: Santa Fe, Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Durham, and Denver. THE FENCE, and associated regional exhibit, THE FENCE NEW MEXICO. The exhibition will be on display again this year at Santa Fe’s Railyard Park, July 22, 2017 – November 4, 2017. THE FENCE is a featured project of PhotoSummer. PhotoSummer, now in its third year, is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico.

Business of Video by Gail Mooney

There are plenty of seminars out there that teach the tools of video as well as how to use those tools – from the DSLR to the RED and everything in between. But what’s lacking are workshops that teach the fundamentals of sound business practices in video production. The video production business is quite different than the business of still photography. The New Mexico chapter of ASMP hosts Gail Mooney, who will provide some key tips that will help you make informed business decisions when producing video for clients.

Topics include:

• Video production and your role in the process.
• Post-­production – when and why to outsource
• Work for Hire and Copyright issues
• Estimating, budgeting and managing a video production
• Paperwork – SOWs and releases
• Licensing your work as well as others’ intellectual property
• Talent and insurance concerns
• Distributing and monetizing self-­‐initiated projects
• How to build an audience and launch a crowd funding campaign
