photo la this weekend

The international photographic art exposition photo la returns for its 24th year at The REEF, located in the historic LA Mart building in downtown Los Angeles, January 15 – 18, 2015. Downtown LA has become an international destination for art patrons and enthusiasts. In addition to photo la and the LA Art Show, downtown LA will also welcome the highly anticipated opening of the new Broad Museum in 2015, along with the ongoing arrival of new cutting-edge and blue-chip galleries, such as Hauser Wirth & Schimmel. Inspired by downtown’s growing vitality and creative energy, photo la relocated to The REEF for its 2014 edition, attracting an unprecedented attendance of 16,000 guests.

March 17: Get out of the dark and into Lightroom!

Give us your best shot and our panelists will process your image three different ways!

What you shoot is just the beginning of visual communication. You can take a shot in many different directions and communicate different things, depending on how you process it.

We’re going to spend our March 17th event  in Lightroom’s Develop Module. Please bring an image and our three experts (Daniel, Greg and George) will each process it their own way. Then we’ll compare the different results — there is no best version, but sometimes a different set of eyes will see something in an image the photographer doesn’t. And sometimes the photographer knows best!

Bring an image on a flash drive and see where it can go!

Our monthly Event takes place at the Plummer Park Community Center in West Hollywood (map). The entrance is on Santa Monica Blvd at Martel Ave, there is adequate parking on-site (3 hr limit) with additional parking available at the north end of the park (accessible from Fountain Ave).

Doors open at 6pm for snacks and conversation, the presentation will start at 7pm.

Feb 17: Prepare your portfolio for maximum impact


Join us at Canon Hollywood as we welcome Jolene Hanson, director of the G2 Gallery, who will offer tips and suggestions for preparing your portfolio for maximum impact.

Jolene Hanson will discuss what to expect from the world of art galleries; from the standards of your biography, CV, and website, to the vision of your portfolio, to the often-glossed-over topic of professionalism and gallery etiquette. She will cover the basics that emerging artists need to have under their belts before approaching a gallery for consignment or exhibition, as well as the tools needed to communicate effectively in that world. Jolene will also cover personal artistic development and how to find the right market for your work in this comprehensive discussion preparing artists to take that next big step.
