Post One: NYMPhoto Art For  Haiti, Benefit Print Auction

The Nymphoto Collective is proud to announce its online auction and print sale to benefit the relief effort in Haiti.

The Art for Haiti auction is coordinated by eBay Giving Works and 100% of the proceeds will go to Partners in Health. The auction & print sale ends March 9, 2010 at 7:30 PM (EST), so place your bid now!

Partners in Health is a recognized non-profit organization that, over the course of 20 years, has established 12 medical non-profit facilities in Haiti. Partners in Health is committed to continue to work with the people of Haiti for better health care.

It has been only a month since the earthquake in Haiti, but the press is already beginning to slow down its coverage, which is why the Nymphoto Collective has organized this online auction. The Haitian people have a very long road ahead to recovery. The artists participating in this fundraiser want to show their solidarity and let the Haitian people know that they will continue to support them in the months and years ahead. Some of the participating artists have family and friends in Haiti, and some have built relationships with the Haitian people and culture through photography.

Work by (in alphabetical order by last name) Keliy Anderson-Staley, Nina Büsing Corvallo, Jeff Cate, Rona Chang, Cameron Goodyear, Candace Gottschalk, Laura Heyman, Geoffrey Hutchinson, Hee Jin Kang, Michelle Kloehn, Yijun Liao, Minette Lee Managhas, Tiana Markova-Gold, Stephen Meierding, Maria Passarotti, Suzanne Révy, Jon Shireman, Emily Shur, Brea Souders, Tema Stauffer, Julianna Swaney, Jane Tam, Hidemi Takagi and Jennifer Williams.

This eclectic group of artists has shown in museums and galleries around the world. The fundraiser offers an opportunity for collectors to acquire artwork and contribute to an important cause.

Post Two: ASMPNY Learning From the Big Guys, How Does a Photographer Become a Brand (NY)
Brands are about the marriage of fact and narrative. It’s important to convey what makes you different – your special capabilities and traits – so that potential clients can easily understand what sets you apart from the competition. We will analyze über-brands that have been constructed based on an individual’s identity (real or assumed), as well as well-known photographers and artists to see how they have done it. This talk is about sharpening your perception skills, so that you can talk articulately about your own – and your client’s – brand. You will come away thinking like a brand strategist, and with some practical tools to use in looking at your own brand.
