AUGUST 22-24 CENTER FOR PHOTOGRAPHY WOODSTOCK WORKSHOP: Art vs. Commerce

Back for the third year in a row due to popular demand! In this two-day workshop you will learn strategies to find the balance between personal and commercial work in order to build a satisfying creative life in photography for the long term. A workshop for all kinds and levels of photographers, and especially for those who’ve reached a plateau in their careers, who want to make a break through creatively, and reconcile the never ending conflict between doing the work you love and what you must do to pay the bills. Award-winning documentary photographer, Doug Menuez, will share what he’s learned about keeping your voice in a commercial world and provide practical solutions for changing your life and work. 

Combining portfolio review, dialogue, and practical applications, you will learn new strategies for success including how to edit the strongest possible portfolio, self-financing personal projects, finding sponsors, landing the most rewarding commercial work, and pain-free financial management skills that most artists never learn. You will also review work by the legends – famous fine art photographers and photojournalists who have succeeded in taking commercial assignments without compromising their vision or integrity. Additionally we will examine how money talks: including proven marketing techniques, cash flow management tools, budgeting, writing book and project proposals, and other core survival skills that every photographer – fine art, photojournalist, or commercial shooter- must know to thrive. You will leave this workshop with a clearly defined vision of yourself and your work, a refined portfolio, and a working understanding of basic business and marketing skills you’ll need to move ahead!

DOUG MENUEZ spent 25 intense years traversing the globe after leaving art school for photojournalism, and then becoming one of the most successful advertising photographers in the US. Starting at the Washington Post and then freelancing for Time, Newsweek, Life, Fortune, and People, he covered assignments ranging from the famine in Ethiopia, to sports and celebrities, to the AIDS crisis. Menuez has made portraits of everyone from Mother Teresa to Robert Redford and President Clinton. His long-term personal work covering Silicon Valley led him to award winning commercial work where he was able to bring his documentary eye to campaigns for Chevy, Coke, Emirates Airlines, Bank of America, Hewlett Packard, Siemens, and Nokia, among others. These commissions allowed him to finance his personal fine art documentary work, including his most recent book project, Transcendent Spirit: The Children of Uganda. Recently, Menuez’ archive was acquired by Stanford University Library. He is currently working on a new book on Silicon Valley and lives with his family. His website is www.menuez.com
