ASMP New England is excited to announce our 4th “Behind the Lens” program. Professional photographers Adrianne Mathiowetz, Brian Kuhlmann and Inti St. Clair will take attendees through the details of one of their recent shoots. Final photographs from each project will be displayed along with behind-the-scenes images, lighting set ups, and documents, such as client correspondence, estimates, invoices, and more.
As much about business and marketing, as the technical and creative approach, Behind the Lens will show case these creatives’ promotion, estimating and planning decisions, as well as their amazing images. Join us by Zoom webinar on Thursday, May 13, at 7:00 pm ET for presentations by these three professionals followed by discussion and Q&A.
Adrianne Mathiowetz (she/her) is a Boston-based portrait and documentary photographer, and is a staff photojournalist for hyper-local news magazine Scout Somerville. She is a photo graduate of The Salt Institute of Documentary Studies, and her work has appeared in The New York Times, Wired, Bust, The Guardian, Vice, The Boston Globe, Fast Company, Forbes, the Star Tribune, on Buzzfeed and MN Original, and has been exhibited at the Inside Out Gallery, the Mpls Photo Center and The Soap Factory.

Brian Kuhlmann (he/him) in his own words:
I didn’t go to school for photography. I didn’t study books about apertures and measurements of light. What taught me, and continues to teach me, is my obsession. From that first, life-changing introduction back in 7thgrade, I’ve poured over magazines and made every time I hold a camera an opportunity to discover more.
Whatever I’m working on, whether a job or a personal project, I always challenge myself to take at least one photograph that’s unlike anything I’ve shot before. These, inevitably, are the images that people remember, that win the awards, that change and touch people’s hearts.
And ultimately, this is my reason to be. To capture moments in such a way that they speak to far more than a single instant framed in time. And are instead an experience. A garnering of the senses. An interaction that embodies a feeling that means the viewer is no longer the person they were before. A moment that transcends the mundane, and opens doorways to Connection.
Because I believe we’re privileged to be living in an era that demands unprecedented change. There’s never been a more potent time to reach through whatever it is that disconnects us—from ourselves, each other, the beings and creatures and the planet—and discover expansion.
