Food Fun Family and Friends

Why: To catch up with old friends,
to make new friends
to say good-bye to summer
to say hello to the fall

Come out and join us for some fun in the fall. For all of the times that you’ve asked “when do I ever just get to hang out with a group of photographers and just chew the fat (so to speak)” here you go. The Chapter Leadership is going to take some time to come together to do a little planning for the coming year. So in addition to being able to hang out with a few friends you can take this as an opportunity to share any ideas you might have for the Chapter. Is there an event you’d like to see? Is there some program that you think the Chapter needs to deliver? Well come to the retreat picnic and take one of the Chapter Board members aside and share your ideas with them. Even better volunteer to work on a committee or program for the coming year. In any event just come out and share the food and the fun.

Please RSVP by Firiday the 2nd at http://spongecell.com/event_page/view/891745 so we know how many to expect

Thanks
and See You There

Call for Volunteers: ASLA

Posted in Chapter News, Events, Non ASMP Events on August 18, 2009 by asmpchimw

Landscape architecture professionals from around the globe will gather September 18 – 21 in Chicago at the Lakeside Center at McCormick Place for the ASLA Annual Meeting and Expo. The meeting will feature more than 125 education sessions, field sessions, and tours over four days.

http://www.asla.org/2009meeting/

ASMP will be hosting several events and we want you to get involved. Here’s a brief overview of what we will be participating in:
Trade Show Booth on the Expo floor
3 Photo Booths on the Expo Floor
A Seminar (Friday 9/18 from 1:30-3pm) entitled: The Key to Getting Your Project Published
A pre-convention program (Thursday 9/17) on the “Business of Architectural Photography” (location still TBD)

Call for Volunteers: Candidates ideally should be well versed in the Business of Architectural Photography if they plan on volunteering for the Trade Show Booth and/or able to do executive headshots if they plan to volunteer for the Photo Booths. All volunteers will get free Expo floor pass (for walking the floor once your shift is over).

The Trade Show Booth will need to be set-up on Friday the 18th. The booth can be hand-carried (rolled) into the hall without any need for union labor. Staffing, set-up and tear down will need to be scheduled. Tear-down will be the evening of the 20th.

Photo Booths (3) will also need to be set-up on Friday the 18th and torn-down the evening of the 20th. Here’s what they have planned for us: http://www.asla.org/2009meeting/expoPhoto.html . We have been given a large area adjacent to the Trade Show booth.

We will be securing lighting equipment from a local rental house. From the hall we will be asking for a small draped table in each booth for your laptop and a stool for the sitters.

Photographers need to bring their own CAMERA, TRIPOD and LAPTOP and can set-up lighting as they choose. You may bring other accessories or lights. The files will need to be processed on the spot after the sitter chooses which they liked. Small files (web only) will need to be copied to the ASMP branded flash drives. Photographers may give their business cards to each sitter as a way to get in touch should they need a larger file or prints at which point the photographer could charge what they want for those services.

Staffing:

Friday, September 18th (8am – 1pm at the latest)
ASMP Booth Set-up: 2-4 people
Photo Booth Set-up (Friday): 2-4 people, also need to coordinate getting gear from rental house

Saturday/Sunday, September 19/20 (9am – 5pm in 2 shifts)
ASMP Trade Show Booth: need 2-3 people at all times.
Could be a morning shift and afternoon shift, so 4-6 people per day.
One or two to be available for ASMP questions, one to coordinate shooting schedules.
Photo Booths: need 3 at all times, morning shift and afternoon shift, 6 per day, so 12 total. You may volunteer for more than one shift depending upon response and availability.

Everything (all booths) will be dissembled at the end of Sunday (5-9pm). Need a minimum of 2 people per booth, so 8 total. Could be the same people that pull the last shift in each booth plus a few extra hands.

Monday, September 21st (8-10am)
Need to coordinate who will return gear to rental house.

We may also plan a group dinner for Friday night depending on the level of interest and participation.

Any questions should be directed to David Seide via e-mail: David@DefinedSpace.com

COCKTAILS & CRITIQUES IS COMING TO MILWAUKEE!!!!!

Posted in Events on August 10, 2009 by asmpchimw

Have a current personal project that you have been working on and need some feedback?

Join the ASMP Gallery Committee for a night out of cocktails and critiques. The Gallery committee believes that the best way to combat slow times in business is to get shooting the projects you’ve been meaning to tackle, the things you love, the things that matter. Moderated by fine art photographer, teacher/mentor Lawrence D’Attalio, Cocktails and Critiques is a group critique, discussion and support session for professional photographers (that’s right everyone else gets to chime in too).

This event will help 6 photographers get from ideas to plans. D’Attalio is an accomplished fine art photographer who has exhibited in multiple counties and is a founding member of the Underwood Foundation, a nonprofit that does social documentary work, particulary in Vietnam. The evening will encourage and inspire you to start thinking about your own personal projects and give you the chance to talk and bounce ideas off other photographers in the community.

Cocktails and Critiques is a creative and productive environment where you are encouraged to think consciously about your creative process and connect with your peers within the photography community. Come Mix, Mingle and critique. You do not have to be showing work in order to come.

Want to be one of the six? These are the requirements for showing your work.
This must be a current body of work. It does not have to be complete; works in progress are just fine for us.

If you are interested in showing work contact Marie Phillips at amymariephillips@gmail.com or (708) 804-0215

First come first serve basis.

When: September 2, 2009 @ 6:30
