Workshop – Sunday, April 3, 2022 – Capture Photography Festival











Sally Buck in conjunction with the Capture Photography Festival and PrintMaker Studio in Vancouver, Canada

A workshop for photographers to develop/enhance their give-away cards, portfolios, intro PDFs and social media to maximise opportunities

Creative professionals in a wide range of industries require fine art photographs for use in their everyday practice. Photographers who have good marketing tools can make it easy for curators, consultants, publishers, editors, art advisors, jurors and collectors to see value in the work and help artists move forward in their careers. At this event, through discussion, presentation, examples and hands-on activity, participants learn the most important promotional offerings they can create and use to keep art world eyes looking at their work.

Whether it’s sequencing a portfolio, submitting a project PDF for feedback, engaging and informing online fans, navigating a sale, or acknowledging a curator, the necessary techniques evolve over time. Guest artist and educator Sally Buck shares current, local and international research to give workshop participants information and motivation to focus their efforts, develop current marketing tools, and shine in the spotlight. Fine art printer John Goldsmith describes his experience generating these materials, shows sample printing and online services, and offers detailed information on ways he can help artists take their promotion to the next level.

Sally Buck is an award winning photographer and art educator living in Vancouver, Canada. Using photo montage as her practice, and photography to investigate her raw materials, she aims to capture the superimposed qualities of transitional spaces, the slide of multiple climates and cultures. Buck earned a Master’s degree in Visual and Performing Arts in Education at the University of British Columbia and a B.A. (Honours) degree in Art History at Queen’s University, Canada. Her photographs and photomontages have been published editorially and exhibited in Canada, the U.S., and Europe. As an art educator, she taught art interpretation and photography at learning centres, galleries and museums including the Peggy Guggenheim Foundation in Venice, Italy and the Vancouver Art Gallery in Canada.

John Goldsmith is a Detroit-born artist and fine art printer currently living and working in Vancouver, Canada. He has a Master’s Degree in Physical Chemistry from Indiana University where he used light to investigate properties of matter. During this time, he began taking darkroom and photography classes at the Hull House in Chicago, IL to develop his own art practice. He was an invited artist for the inaugural Capture Photography Festival in 2013 and the 2016 award winner for a public art display on the Canada Line. His photographs have been featured at exhibitions including the Format Festival (UK), Third Floor Gallery (Wales), and the Head On Photo Festival (Australia) and regularly featured in print and online publications.
