Hello student photographers!  Our LA chapter wants you to know about actual resources that will help you become the best professional you want to be.  I wish I knew about this when I was a student.  I’m certain I would have had a more robust practice, sooner, as a result.

Last week I reached out to USC Annenberg Assistant Professor of Professional Practice / Photojournalism Professor, Miki Turner, to ask if I could visit her class to share with them the benefits of ASMP-LA Student membership.  She, herself, is an ASMP member!

It was a joy to be there!   I have been in touch with other schools:  Lee White, Department Chair, Photography College of the Canyons (also an ASMP-LA member), Dennis Keeley, Department Chair, Photography, Art Center College of Design, Alex Slade, Assistant Chair, Fine Arts, Otis College of Art and Design, and Sean Dufrene, Photographer, Cal State University – Long Beach.

I will next be visiting with College of the Canyons’ Parallax Photo Club on May 12th to talk to them, and participate in their annual portfolio review.
