The Life of a Project Recap

Before we roll full-on into November’s event promotion, here is a quick recap of ASMP Oregon’s October event at the Portland Art Museum. We were fortunate to have Mary Virginia Swanson give us an expert overview on how to best approach our next photography project.

Mary covered every aspect of the life of a project. From developing the concept and defining the audience to defining marketing strategies to share the work with industry professionals and expanding the presence of the project to print, web, and social media.

ASMP members were joined by students from Mount Hood Community College, the Portland Art Museum Photography Council, The Portland Darkroom, Oregon PPA members, and Blue Sky Gallery members to be inspired and informed by Mary’s in-depth knowledge, experience, and wisdom on making and marketing art.

ASMP Oregon is now working on our next event, the annual Portfolio Review Night, on Thursday, November 14th. Tickets are going fast, so plan on acting soon if you want to participate in this fun experience.
