ASMP Print and Pint – Theme: Documentary/Event

ASMP Print and Pint - September 27, 2018

Come to the second ASMP PRINT AND PINT meet-up sponsored by Camera Bits, makers of Photo Mechanic, Pro Photo Supply and Lagunitas Brewing Company. All working photographers are invited to come and share their workprints with other pros. The theme for this second meet up is DOCUMENTARY/EVENT, and will feature photographer Jan Sonnenmair. She’ll be showing 20 slides x 20 seconds and sharing her thoughts on the idea of DOCUMENTARY photography.

What do we mean by DOCUMENTARY/EVENT? We want you to bring 2 images (old or new) that fall inside of: street photography, news gathering, documentary storytelling and event coverage (including concerts, sports, rallies, etc.). What do we mean by “WORKPRINTS“? These are not precious, matted, framed, bagged or collectible. These are prints you can spill beer on, or trade with other Photographers at the end of the night. They are work-in-progress quality, not fine art.

This is a FREE event if you bring 2 8×10 work prints on the THEME. If you don’t, it’s $10 (hint: bring 2 prints). The event is limited, so RSVP now. (Or when the tickets come available. Hint: August 1st) When you register you’ll get a coupon from our generous print sponsor, Pro Photo Supply, to make 2 discounted 8×10 Kodak C-Prints. Free beer (21+, 1 per) and Pizza! If you do this right, you’re getting this whole evening for free!

ASMP’s goal is to strengthen our community by building camaraderie around the thing that connects us all: photographs! All you need to do is:

Step 1: Show up with 2 printed photographs* on the subject of the night.

Step 2: Get a Beer (or Wine, or Soft Drink)

Step 3: Find another Photographer (there should be plenty of them) and look at THEIR PHOTOGRAPHS. Ask questions. In turn, they will ask about YOUR PHOTOGRAPHS.

Step 4: Repeat until you are kicked out at the end of the night.

*iPads, phones, etc. don’t count! We want to see actual prints!

RSVP: Yes! You need a ticket to attend this event.
