Time: 7pm

Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer Brian Smith shares insights from his last 30 years as a editorial photographer. He’ll talk about his transition from Pulitzer Prize-winning sports photographer to shooting celebrity portraits of Hollywood’s A-List. Smith will speak about both the art and commerce of editorial photography and what every artist needs to know about business of photography to remain in business. In this presentation, Smith will share ways to grab and keep the attention of photo editors and art directors; how shooting personal projects can promote your vision and land the jobs you’ll love to shoot; and ways to keep your portfolio and vision fresher than next year’s winner of The X Factor.

Tickets for this event include museum admission to MOPA, so please come early to check out MOPA’s exhibit of winning entries from the Pictures of the Year International 2013. Register here.
