On Monday, February 13, at 7 pm, the Charleston Center for Photography will welcome Jeff Dodge.
Photographing Charleston, Savannah and the Coastal Islands, getting published and forging a career in travel photography.
So you think you're a good shooter and you like to write. Finding a publisher in the world of travel photography is surprisingly doable. It might even spawn a career.
This Second Monday Lecture details my on the fly experience, photographing and authoring a travel book for WW Norton Publishers. Still life enthusiasts, nature photographers, photojournalists, fine arts devotees and photo illustrators will all learn how to jump-start a career in publishing. Attendees will learn how to follow through to finished product and tackle the most difficult part of the process which is selling your labor of love. Eventually, hopefully, you'll find an agent and studio manager so your time is spent cultivating ideas, shooting photographs and leaving business affairs to others.
We'll also touch on how travel photography offers numerous avenues to a career in professional photography.
Jeff Dodge has been a professional photographer for over 25 years, working in Europe and the United States for corporate and editorial clients worldwide. A partial client list includes, American Express, Philip Morris, NYSE, Bloomberg Financial, Merrill Lynch, Success Magazine, Institutional Investor, Asia Inc. and Forbes, among others.
Dodge has been making photographs in Charleston, Savannah and the islands for the past 15 years. He lives with his family in Charleston, South Carolina.
