    Inexpensive 4×6 Business Cards

    I’m a big fan of getting business cards printed three up on a 4×6 print from Sam’s Club. Sam’s charges 17 cents for a 4×6 print and 13 cents if you’re willing to pick them up the next day. To get that price, choose “ready in days” instead of “ready in hours” in the console […]    Read More…>>

    Collaborating on the Booth Image

    How much work goes into creating a good booth image. Some artists take a picture of their booth set up at an art show, sometimes with a cell phone camera, hoping it comes out good enough to use. For other artists it involves setting up the booth at home for the picture, and be willing […]    Read More…>>

    The St Louis Workshop

    My workshop and the image evaluation jury for the St Louis Art Fair was Feb 1st and 2nd. The Friday evening workshop was about how to photograph artwork for jurying.

    The Uniform Body of Work

    Tags:

    A uniform or cohesive body of work makes a strong set of jury images. For artists who create work with a common theme or style, it’s relatively easy to choose which pieces to photograph for a set of images to jury with. It shows vision and growth within your medium. For other artists though, it’s […]    Read More…>>

I guess a lot more artists are waking up to the fact that they need a good booth picture before they spend their jury fee money because for the first time this year, I’ve been working with northern artists setting up their booth outdoors in the snow to photograph it,     Read More…>>
