Mark your calendars! Lauren Greenfield is coming to speak about her latest project, Generation Wealth. Since the 1990s Greenfield has been documenting the "influence of affluence" and how the American Dream evolved from "Keeping up with the Jones' to Keeping up with the Kardashians".

Colorful, sad, humorous, and outrageous, her photographs give us access to pivotal moments which led to a culture that highly values the currencies of beauty, youth, fame, and celebrity. Greenfield draws insights from her related photo series and films (THIN, Girl Culture, kids+money, The Queen of Versailles), and makes comparisons to lifestyles around the world.

Don't let FOMO set in. Register Today!

Bonus! Lauren Greenfield will be signing books after her talk. So bring yours or purchase one there!

ASMP is excited to announce it will team up with Mount Ida College for the first Behind the Lens program!

ASMP members Mike Ritter, Liza Voll, Liz Linder, Joe Ferraro, Dave Bradley, and Jim Scherer will each take attendees behind the scenes of one of their recent shoots. One large image from each shoot will be on display along with some smaller images / documents such as behind the scenes images, client correspondence, estimates, invoices, lighting set ups and more.

While this program will show the students that a lot more goes into a shoot than meets the eye; it will also benefit ASMP members since it covers all aspects of being a professional photographer. And, we can always learn from one another when it comes to pricing, contract terms, lighting, handling clients and more.

Come on out to hone your craft, get away from the computer, and strengthen ASMP's vital bond to area schools!

Join us for our third Field Trip to Service Photo. Chances are, most of us have been to Service Photo at least once, but you'll get the chance to hear owner Burke Seim tell the story of WHY Service is the last camera shop standing in the area.

Of course, we'll have drinks and snacks. ...and there might be a give-away or two. This will also be an invaluable chance to get to know the people who keep us stocked with gear. They're not that ponytailed yahoo from Wolf Camera who tried selling you that pink Pentax K-R.

Colin Finlay has been awarded the prestigious Picture of the Year International (POYi) honor six times. For almost twenty five years, Finlay has documented the human condition with compassion, empathy and dignity. He has covered war and conflict, disappearing traditions, the environment in both its glory and its devastation, genocide, famine, religious pilgrimage and global cultures. In pursuit of his passion, he has circled the globe twenty-seven times, in search of that one photo that will be a testament to the depth of human will and compassion, of hope and of an informed collective consciousness.

His work has been honored by prestigious organizations such as the Lucie Award/IPA, POYi (Picture of the Year International), New York Art Directors, Photo District News (PDN), Applied Arts, International Center for Photography, and the Academy of Television Arts and Sciences. His photographs have been featured in Vanity Fair, TIME, U.S. News and World Report, American Photo, Los Angeles Times Magazine, Asia Week, World Health Organization, UNICEF, Photographic Magazine, Communication Arts and Discovery.

Finlay's first book, "The Unheard Voice, Portraits of Childhood", was published in 1996. It is a black and white collection of images of children caught in the midst of conflict. Testify, published in 2006, is a body of work which comprises seventeen years of his photojournalism work from around the globe, which won 1st place "Book of the Year" from POYi. "Darfur: Twenty Years of War and Genocide in Sudan", was published in July 2007 by powerHouse. Co-produced with Proof and Amnesty International, this book brings to light the history of war by eight world-renowned photographers and writers. Co-founded by Finlay, Proof is a non-profit organization established to create awareness on the issues faced by populations in post-conflict societies and to encourage social change through photography.

In 2011, Finlay collaborated with Dorka Keehn to photograph "Eco Amazons: 20 Women Who Are Transforming the World", published by powerHouse. Finlays photographs are in the permanent collections of the George Eastman House, J. Paul Getty Museum, Santa Barbara Museum of Art, LACMA and MOCA.

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.
