The Art of Printmaking and Selling Your Prints

with Josef Blazar

Josef Blazar is the owner of Blazing Editions, a fine art printing company based in Rhode Island. In his presentation, “The Art of Printmaking and Selling Your Prints,” Blazer will discuss the mission and background of Blazing Editions, emphasizing the importance of quality and customer service. He will also share information on various topics relating to printing images, from the benefits and drawbacks of paper and metal substrates to the importance of high resolution photos when printing from a camera. After an overview of important details in the process of printing and re-printing images, Blazer will provide valuable insight relating to art exhibitions, selling prints, interacting with galleries, and the hardships of online-focused selling.

America in Focus: Frances, Dorothea and Me

with Carol Highsmith

Frances Benjamin Johnston, Dorothea Lange and Carol M. Highsmith collections are all featured in the Library of Congress Prints and Photographs archive.

Johnston, funded by Andrew Carnegie, traveled throughout America documenting architecture, gardens, African Americans and Native Americans during her career that spanned from early 1900s to the 1940s.

It’s Not About Me

with Keith Major

How I checked my ego in order to get the desired shots. I’ll tell the stories behind how personalities like Kevin Hart, David Koch, Iris Apfel, and Frank Lucas (Frank is the subject of the movie American Gangster played by Denzel Washington) can affect the mood of a shoot. I discuss how things went, how I handled situations. I discuss how crazy it can get sometimes and what I believe one can do to keep things even or what to do when caught in the eye of the storm. I believe a selfless approach to be a valuable asset in getting to the next level.

Visual Storytelling, An Alternative Way of Building Your Body of Work

with Andy Biggs

Photography is a visual storytelling method and one alternative way of assembling a body of work that will be consistent over time is to use adjectives that you would like to use, even before you pick up your camera. These adjectives will drive your work, define your visual style and help narrow down what you are trying to say and how you say it.

Andy will walk us through his own journey of visual storytelling, from his work with Banana Republic to his fine art print sales and stock photo library.
