Thursday, June 18, 3pm ET
This event is exclusively for members of ASMP as part of the June Member Appreciation Month activities.
There is both art and strategy to producing estimates for photographic productions. We’ve convened a panel of industry experts representing the different perspectives who are stakeholders in the process – an art buyer, a producer, a photo representative, and a photographer – looking to carry this conversation forward with a candid and innovative look at the state of pricing – how CoVid-19 is changing the landscape with respect to new pandemic-related expenses and procedures, and also how this time of transition may be an opportunity to re-frame the bidding process. Read below to meet our panelists:

Gabriella Marks, Photographer and Treasurer Serving on the National Board of ASMP
Gabriella Marks is a Santa Fe based editorial and commercial photographer. Originally from San Francisco, she arrived in New Mexico a decade ago on pure intuition, but knows why she stays: the spectacular high desert light, the lenticular clouds, and the humbling experience of urging a single squash plant from the dry clay soil and ancient pueblo pottery shards in the garden. Her work is in the permanent collection of the New Mexico History Museum. Gabriella is also a Director on the National Board of ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers), the premiere professional trade organization for professional photographers.
