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
