Brown Bag Season Kick Off – Adapting to an Evolving Marketplace

BROWN BAG Season Kick-off!
As photographers we learn how to punt and change directions if what we?ve scheduled changes.  It defines our profession.  Being flexible, solving problems. Without those characteristics, it would be impossible to survive in this evolving market place.  Unfortunately due to circumstances beyond our control, APA|DC had to cancel the highly recommended printing workshop offered by premier printer and teacher, Bob Korn.  In it?s place we are going to jump start our popular Brown Bag series this upcoming Thursday, March 3rd at 6:30pm.

APA|DC Board member, Randy Santos, will lead the discussion on adapting to an evolving marketplace. He will talk about his own successful business, DCStockimages.com ; how he self assigns himself projects in order to create the stock he sells. And how to be flexible and change directions when the market demands it.

The need for stock is rising and the number of assignment diminishing.  Randy will have a few pointers that he’s developed to create his successful business, which allows him to still do what we all came into this profession to do, take pictures.  Everyone is invited to join and share their own experiences.

All photographers, editors, friends and family are invited

Refreshments will be served.

Whether you’ve been in photography for decades or just getting started, to succeed in today’s rapidly changing market you need to keep growing and adapting.

APA|DC offers a unique solution: a highly popular series of brown bag events in which professional photographers, in an informal discussion setting,  candidly share thoughts about what is and isn’t working, discuss best practices, and sharpen the skills they need to succeed.

Hosted exclusively by APA|DC, these events give you unfiltered insights and answers you simply can’t find anywhere else.

If you’ve never attended one of our Brown Bag Meetings, they are basically structured informal discussion, no set program, where we discuss and share our ideas and thoughts regarding a set topic.   Even if you feel you have nothing to learn from our topic it is always beneficial for other members to hear from other experienced photographers their thoughts and ideas.  Remember, our goal at APA is to elevate the level and quality of all our work, for all our members.
