A photographer’s success depends on more than just creating great images. While having a good portfolio is an important step in the right direction, there are several other variables that will help you excel in your career. Learning how to present your photographs to a commercial gallery, magazine editor, not-for-profit artist’s space, or museums is paramount in getting exposure. Knowing what grants, fellowships, and artist’s residencies are available is your key to finding valuable resources. And utilizing the most readily available resource, the Internet, is one of the most critical tools in advancing your career, thus increasing your chance of getting published. To learn more about these techniques and methods for success, join the Center for Photography at Woodstock’s executive director, Ariel Shanberg, for an inspiring two-hour tour of the art world.
