Talking Business: NPPA Northern Short Course
March 2, 2017 - March 4, 2017
The Northern Short Course, in association with the National Press Photographers Association, holds an annual conference along the eastern seaboard in late winter or early spring each year. This is a tremendous opportunity for students and professional photojournalists to gather amongst themselves to view work, discuss trends, participate in a host of discussions and workshops and network formally and informally after hours.
I was asked to present portions of my workshop at the 2016 event in New Jersey and I immediately accepted a return invitation. Stay tuned and check back with the main workshop page for updated registration and workshop topic information.
“I feel that the information you share in there is so important and is stuff that isn’t discussed openly enough amongst the photojournalism community. You saw all the photojournalists taking pictures of the day rates you showed. There shouldn’t be that kind of hunger when it comes to understanding what the standard assignment rate is from a publication. People need this information and we need more people out there sharing it so we’re not all undercutting each other by mistake.”—Justin Stewart, 2016 NPPA Northern Short Course attendee.
