With a wide variety of insurance options and an ever-changing definition of "commercial photography," it can be difficult to know what coverage you need, what coverage you don't, and whether you have the policy that's right for your business.

This month, join ASMP AZ/PHX and PAC Phoenix to dissect the details of photography insurance with Howard Burkholz, an Allstate agent specializing in the commercial photo industry. From liability insurance to E&O insurance to choosing the right coverage for your equipment (and rental gear!), Howard will discuss what you need to know about insurance for your photography.

In addition to his overview of insurance, there will also be Q&A time after the presentation where you can ask Howard your questions about insurance.

Insurance is a vital part of being a professional photographer, and having the right coverage can be the difference between a minor inconvenience and a total disaster. Don't miss this opportunity to gain a better understanding of professional insurance!

The New Mexico chapter of American Society of Media Photographers is pleased to announce a Creativity and Travel Photography seminar with award-winning internationally recognized photographer Nevada Wier. The half day seminar will be held in Tipton Hall on the campus of the Santa Fe University of Art and Design.

Photographing on the move in foreign countries requires the combination of technical expertise, culture competence, intuitive awareness, curiosity and a willingness to experiment with creative techniques, says Nevada Wier, a specialist in travel photography. She will discuss how to combine technical, practical, and creative aspects of travel photography in order to create an image that elevates itself above the usual travel cliches. The seminar will also focus on how to approach and creatively photograph people, cross-cultural considerations in foreign countries, working in difficult lighting, using natural light, fill-flash, tips on equipment, and digital concerns in the field.

The seminar is a fundraiser for THE FENCE, a large-scale photography exhibition reaching over 4 million visitors annually through open-air exhibitions in 7 cities across the United States: Santa Fe, Brooklyn, Boston, Atlanta, Houston, Durham, and Denver. THE FENCE, and associated regional exhibit, THE FENCE NEW MEXICO.

The exhibition will be on display again this year at Santa Fe's Railyard Park, July 22, 2017 - November 4, 2017. THE FENCE is a featured project of PhotoSummer. PhotoSummer, now in its third year, is a collaborative initiative that represents and actively promotes historical and contemporary photography in New Mexico.

Our thanks to Santa Fe University of Art and Design and the Marion Center Photographic Arts for hosting the event.

Join veteran photographer Jodi Cobb on a whirlwind retrospective of a distinguished career that has spanned four decades. One of only four female staff photographers in National Geographic's history, she is known for breaking through barriers and lifting a curtain on hidden societies. Cobb has captured fascinating glimpses of worlds such as Japan's secret Geisha culture and the cloistered lives of Saudi Arabian women. Her landmark story "21st Century Slavery" exposed the tragedy of human trafficking, generating more reader accolades than any other story until then. Travel with this inspiring woman as she chronicles her public and private path from young photojournalist to world-renowned photographer.

Chapter Event

Jodi Cobb has always been an explorer. Before turning twelve she had circled the globe with her family; since then she has worked in more than sixty-five countries, using her camera to ask questions about the human condition in an increasingly interconnected world.

Whether examining the beauty and cruelty of the Japanese geisha's ancient traditions for her groundbreaking book "Geisha: the Life, the Voices, the Art"; exposing the tragedy of human trafficking for her 2003 National Geographic article "21st Century Slaves"; or exploring the hidden world of the women of Saudi Arabia, Cobb has searched for humanity in some of the world's most complex, impenetrable environments.

As a staff and freelance photographer with National Geographic for more than three decades, Cobb photographed over thirty stories and developed an international following for her visually powerful work. Today she also brings her experience to a variety of freelance advertising and editorial assignments, and teaches and lectures around the world. She received the prestigious Missouri Honor Medal for Distinguished Service in Journalism, was the first woman named White House Photographer of the Year, and one of her photographs is on the Voyager Spacecraft, out in the universe forever.

Cobb received her Master of Arts and Bachelor of Journalism degrees from the University of Missouri, and an honorary Doctor of Fine Arts from the Corcoran College of Art and Design. She now lives in Washington, D.C.
