This 2-hour virtual workshop will offer photographers an inside perspective from a pioneer collector on how to access the fine art marketplace. Learn the questions collectors ask and how this might impact your practice. We’ll discuss how to find the ‘right’ gallery, proper etiquette when approaching them (including what not to do), and marketing materials needed in order to get your name out into the marketplace.
