Editorial photography is undergoing rapid change, yet the death of magazine photography has been greatly exaggerated. Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith, President of Editorial Photographers, will discuss how to maximize the creative and commercial rewards while avoiding bad contracts and stagnant rates.

Seminar Topics:

  • How to get and keep the attention of photo editors and art directors at top magazines
  • How production value can make your work stand out
  • How to charge properly for digital processing
  • What are the best things you can do in a slow economy
  • How to maximize re-licensing, syndication and reprint revenue
  • How the shift to online content will affect rates
  • What you should know about editorial that nobody told you

Brian Smith's first magazine photograph appeared in Life Magazine when he was a 20 year-old student at the University of Missouri. Five years later he won the Pulitzer for photographs of the Los Angeles Olympics. Based in Miami Beach, his work has won awards in World Press Photo, American Photo, Pictures of the Year and Communication Arts competitions and has appeared on hundreds of magazine covers including Time, Forbes, Business Week, Sports Illustrated, and New York Magazine. Smith is one of Sony's Artisans of Imagery. His work can be seen at www.briansmith.com.
