We’re proud to host Susan Carr, an accomplished Chicago-based photographer, here at the Harrington College of Design. Don’t miss this! Susan will be speaking from chapters of her new book, “The Art and Business of Photography” and you’ll have a chance to get a signed copy of her book at the event!

As a photographer for over twenty years, Susan Carr’s photographs can be found in corporate and private collections, most notably the Pfizer Corporation and the Museum of Contemporary Photography. A past president of the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP), Susan has long been dedicated to the advocacy and education of fellow photographers.

Here’s what some ASMP leaders and members had to say about her new book:

“At last, a book that addresses the rapidly changing realities all photographers are facing today! This book provides unique and invaluable insights into earning a living as a photographer in a world where everyone owns a camera. From the nuts and bolts of copyright, licensing, and paperwork, to balancing personal creative development with satisfying client needs, Susan Carr has packed practical ideas, actionable advice, and thought-provoking analysis into a concise, personal, and accessible gem of a book.”  – Judy Herrmann, former ASMP president, award-winning photographer, speaker, and consultant

“Photography is all about the art. Unless, of course, you hope to earn some money, and then you’d be wise to know a thing or two about the business of photography. Susan Carr’s book does a great job with that balancing act that is art + commerce. This is an important read.” – Chase Jarvis, visual artist

The title of this post says it all – calling all Not-For-Profits that are in need of Photography!

Harrington College of Design’s Social Practices in Photography (or PHO269) is seeking new, start-up or underfunded not-for-profits who are in need of professional photographic services. This class offered through  Harrington College’s renowned Photography program is hoping to provide images to organizations that have not had the means to afford a professional photographer in the past.  In order to qualify for this program, images must be used in printed collateral sometime in the remainder of 2011 and carry the student’s credit information.  The student should receive copies of the final printed piece for their portfolio materials as well.

By shooting for a real client, the goal is to provide a real world experience for our Harrington photography students while helping them understand the power or value of an image outside of its commercial value.

This two-part course is part of our new four year Bachelor of Fine Arts in Commercial Photography (BFA) program, which adds social service and global awareness to the technical foundation students receive in the first two years of the program.

If you are interested in receiving photographic services or know someone who might please get in touch with Dirk Fletcher, Department Chairman of the Photography Program at Harrington College of Design at dfletcher@harringtoncollege.com.
