Pints & Pixels

In case you've ever missed one, here's a little preview of what goes on at an ASMP/Meetup Pints & Pixels night.

It's not your typical event, there's never a cover (but there's usually a drink and something to munch on) and we usually talk for awhile, and look at some pictures. At out January P&P, hosted by McCory James Studio, we had over 30 guests and 20 submitted work to be looked at!

Sure, ASMP is a professional's organization, but Pints & Pixels is not—We'll look at whatever work comes through the door. Comments, critiques, war stories...Sometimes it's more, sometimes it's less...But it's all good. Get it? Low-key, no schedule, all that.

We'll see you at the next one!

Call for Entries: Center for Fine Art Photography

The theme for the Center for Fine Art Photography's next show is MOTION.

Our lives are in constant motion. Photography can stop time and suspend life in one moment. It can capture the passage of hours, day, or a single second, in one image. The world is made up of people and things that move and are moved. The Center is looking for images that depict all types of motion.

Juror: Rich Clarkson’s professional career has span over 50 years and has included the positions of director of photography and senior assistant editor of The National Geographic Society, contract photographer for Sports Illustrated, NCAA, Time and Life, and has covered eight world Olympics. Rich is also a life time member of ASMP and advisor to the Colorado chapter.

DEADLINE FOR ENTRIES IS JANUARY 12. Visit the Center for Fine Art Photography web site for details.

Client: Exempla Healthcare

Usage: Outdoor / Print
Art Director / Copywriter: Colleen McLean
Photographed at Exempla Lutheran Medical Center, Physicians Pavilion lobby

Dr. D. is a world-class neurologist whom I've had the pleasure of photographing several times including during brain surgery. He's an energetic, hip renaissance sort of guy, and a star in the Exempla surgical family. The gist of the campaign is to show something interesting but totally ordinary about several of Exempla's caregivers.

Making Music Photography Lucrative


Few of us, however, have ever been paid much to do it.

This article from PDN Online dispels some of the myths about shooting music & musicians, as well as working with labels and within their budgets.

"What can make working for a record label worthwhile for photographers, especially jobs with smaller budgets, depends on a number of intangibles, such as the potential for licensing, future assignments in the music industry or the chance to build a portfolio that appeals to advertisers."
