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.

Awaken Your Creative Vision with five time Portrait Photographer of the Year, Alexis Cuarezma.

From Little League to photographing some the best athletes in the world, go inside a portrait session with Alexis and see what is essential to create images with impact and emotion during an assignment. Learn how to quickly connect with your subject to have a harmonious relationship during the shoot, and how a career that began in a little league baseball field turned into shooting six covers for Sports Illustrated.

He will show you results, including an entire 30 second photo shoot with a world class athlete, and how he simultaneously executed two separate lighting setups during an assignment for Sports Illustrated to give the editors what they wanted, while still creating images for himself.

NEVER SETTLE FOR JUST ENOUGH WITH YOUR VISION.

From this lecture, you'll walk away learning Alexis' approach to creating/lighting images with impact, connecting with your subject, and how Alexis plans and executes a photo shoot to make his vision a reality.
