About This Class

Jennifer Schwartz's 10-part series on best practices for fine art photographers gives you the tools to take your fine art photography career by the reins and thoughtfully and purposefully develop a plan to get you where you want to go.  Learn how to tighten your work, develop your brand, identify goals and a plan for your photography, and strategically launch your project. Check out all the courses here.

In this sixth of ten courses, you will learn everything you need to know about getting your work shown in a gallery. From the different types of galleries, to determining which gallery is the right fit for you, to submitting to a gallery and creating the best marketing materials, you will learn all about the photographer-gallery relationship. For your class project, you will design a promo piece that you can use to send to a prospective gallery.

Nicely presented. Good, basic info.
The class offers very useful information, especially for those just learning to navigate the gallery system. I wish I'd seen this early on in my career, as it would have helped me avoid many of the pitfalls and hard lessons learned.
She's really helping understand a portion of the Art World that seems very mysterious to me. And she gives clear explanation on how to navigate it. I' super pleased. It was dope.
