APA | NY: The Business of Event Photography with Joe Sinnott

Thu 18th Jan, 2024 – 5:00pm–6:00pm

By APA Admin in New York

Join SVA photography instructor Joe Sinnott for a discussion about the business and some useful techniques for photographing events. Events provide a good entry point for generating income as a photographer without the capital equipment investment associated with most other photography specialties. We’ll talk about negotiating rates, insurance, post production, some useful flash techniques, and what sort of gear you need to be well prepared for this type of work. A Q&A will follow.

This FREE event will be held IN-PERSON at the Adorama Event Space in New York.
