ASMP KC is launching a Free Bi-Monthly Lunchtime Series of studio meetings that will feature a local ASMP member, photographer or expert presenting on their work or some relevant photo business subject. Initially we are providing sandwiches and soft drinks. The presentation is open to all current and prospective ASMP members. The first lunch meeting will be at our Chapter President, Simon Kuoas, West Bottoms Studio.

Our first special guest presenter is past ASMP-KC member, videographer, Jon Brick.

Using his current feature project, Uncommon Allies, as an example, Jon will focus his talk on the process and challenges of making a video documentary from concept, to funding, shooting, editing and marketing. It will be an inspiring presentation with tips for budding videographers and stills photographers seeking guidance in the world of video. Jon has been creating award winning, high profile media for over 20 years gaining broad experience as a videographer, director, editor and producer.

Why Should I Join a Brain Trust?
One of the main reasons people join ASMP is for community and for support with the challenges of working as a professional photographer. ASMPNY's Brain Trust groups provide a structure for this type of connection and information. At the moment there are 11 Brain Trust groups meeting under the auspices of ASMPNY.

What Is a Brain Trust?
It's a peer group within ASMPNY for feedback, answers and support. Photographers meet on a regular basis to share information and help each other with their careers. The regular get-togethers provide an opportunity to learn and have questions answered, as well as help provide connections to a broader community of photographers.

What Is The Big Brain Meeting?
An overview of how ASMPNY's Brain Trust program works, an opportunity to bring a real-life issue to the group, and an opportunity to join a group. At this introductory meeting, as an example of what might come up in a typical Brain Trust group, we will explore a specific issue of concern. If you have a question you would like to ask relating to the art or business of photography please bring it along.

Issues to consider include:
Contracts, copyright, negotiating, pricing, marketing, working with assistants, finding affordable and reliable resources, and staying on track with goals. At the end of the evening anyone attending will have the opportunity to join a Brain Trust group.

This is a member only event.

This event is full, but you can RSVP and be added to the waiting list.

Join celebrated White House photographers Dennis Brack, Sharon Farmer, and Diana Walker as they share their images and the stories behind them.

This lecture is to coincide with the exhibition:

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times

Smithsonian American Art Museum
2nd floor South, 8th and F Streets, NW Washington, DC 20004
More Exhibition Info

President John F. Kennedy's administration coincided with a golden age of photojournalism in America and no single politician was photographed more than Kennedy. Photographers and newsreel cameramen used images of Kennedy and his young family to convey a vision of a new America's a sophisticated world power engaged in building a bright future for its citizens. Kennedy, in turn, understood the power of pictures to convey his message to voters and was a willing partner in crafting his public persona to help build support for the space program, the Peace Corps, legislation on civil rights and immigration, equal pay for women, federal health insurance for the elderly initiatives that would ensure a more diverse and egalitarian America.

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times brings together seventy-seven images culled from the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library, Getty Images, private collections, and the Kennedy family archives. The dramatic scope of Kennedy's life is evident in these photographs -- from his first congressional bid as a decorated war hero in 1946, his fairytale marriage to Jacqueline Bouvier in 1953, his run for the White House in 1960 and role as commander in chief, to the tragedy of his death in Dallas in 1963. These images remain as indelible evidence of John Kennedy's personal charisma and political accomplishments.

American Visionary is organized by Lawrence Schiller of Wiener Schiller Productions; John Jacob, SAAM's McEvoy Family Curator for Photography, is coordinating the exhibition in Washington, DC. The exhibition is based on the book JFK: A Vision for America.

SAAM's presentation of American Visionary is the premiere event in the John F. Kennedy Presidential Library and Museum's yearlong, nationwide celebration that commemorates Kennedy's centennial year. The exhibition opens in time for what would have been Kennedy's 100th birthday on May 29, 2017.

American Visionary: John F. Kennedy's Life and Times is presented by the Smithsonian American Art Museum in cooperation with the John F. Kennedy Library Foundation and with the generous support of the Governance Institute and the Blanche & Irving Laurie Foundation. Additional support has been provided by Stephen Kennedy Smith, Wiener Schiller Productions, and Getty Images. The presentation in Washington, DC is made possible by the Margery and Edgar Masinter Exhibitions Fund and the Bernie Stadiem Endowment Fund.

Admit it. You're somewhat curious about drones.

How much does a decent setup cost you? What's with the FAA regulations? What can it add to the work you do right now or what avenues can it open up for new work possibilities? How much would it cost to subcontract a pro who is FAA approved and properly insured to shoot for you?

Once again, technology is making exciting things possible. In regards to drones, Tony Cancel of Top View Aerial Photography will give both demonstrations along with a presentation of his work to help you understand it all better. Get your hands on the joysticks but don't dive bomb any friends. See Tony's terrific work and bring all your drone questions for him to answer.

Come celebrate and learn with ASMP New England! The Amigos Locos food truck will be on hand along with some alcohol to get the party started. See you there!
