In this course, the experienced photographer develops a cohesive body of work that's ready for both exhibitions and publications. Topics such as printing, sizing, resolution, tonal levels, framing techniques and hanging approaches to suit the space are explored in depth. Options for publishing, self-publishing, determining social-media platforms, branding and creating an artist's statement are all considered. Discovering established galleries and alternative spaces (as well as the increasingly popular online galleries), determining pricing, and the planning of opening receptions are also central themes. In short, the class is for the photographer who's ready to venture out of the studio with a sense of comfort, creativity and professionalism.
