WORKSHOPS: Fotofest 2008

Two public workshops, "Career Builders and Art Makers," and "Publishing Photo Books Today," will be running in March 2008 during Fotofest 2008 in Houston, TX. Taking place March 11 and March 16, respectively, both are coordinated by Mary Virginia Swanson, photography marketing consultant and prolific blogger. HP is collaborating on hosting "Career Builders," a comprehensive course on marketing one's art and building a business by promoting oneself in editorial, curatorial, and online markets; and Darius Himes, Editor and Publisher of Radius Books in New Mexico, is co-hosting "Publishing Photo Books." Both workshops have a $150 registration fee.

Each workshop will have nine speakers each. Brian Paul Clamp, Director of ClampArt Gallery; Katherine Ware, of the Philadelphia Museum of Arts; Manfred Zollner, Photo Editor of FOTOMagazin; artists Sean Perry and Lisa M. Robinson; Denise Wolff of Phaidon Publishing; and Thomas Hoepker of Magnum Photos are but a few of the excellent speakers who will be joining the hosts for these one-day workshops.

Fotofest, the Twelfth International Biennial of Photography and Photo-Related Art, runs March 7 to April 8, 2008. Click here for more information, and to register.
