Come exercise your estimating skills with this educational and exhilarating, program on pricing.  Commercial photographer Todd Joyce will hammer home what our clients are thinking, show what makes you valuable (or not) and give practical pricing info.  Todd will present various projects and have the audience submit our estimates (anonymously) as well as sharing his pricing for the same jobs. Join us to get a better handle on our market, improve your estimating skills and understand the “value of you.”

Join us for an exercise in pricing as Commercial photographer and past president of ASMP, Todd Joyce (http://www.joycephotography.com/) will lead us through the difficult discussion and get beyond the taboo of talking about price.   As photographers, we’re constantly estimating, but how confident are we in the terms we use and the amounts we charge?

Todd will discuss who our clients are and what they’re thinking, The “value of you” and practical pricing info. Todd will present several photo projects for audience members to submit our estimates – anonymously.  Todd will share his estimate for each job as well as the audience’s estimates, proving to be a very educational and interesting evening of discussions.

Please remember, ASMP or its members cannot tell photographers what to charge; but Todd can discuss and share what he would charge or has charged, and together we can learn more about our market, while improving how we estimate work.

Here are a few past quotes from prior program attendees…
“After this program, I have a much better understanding of pricing.”
“Bravo!  It was the perfect program for your chapter.”
“It’s so difficult to talk about pricing and you broke the ice for all of us.”
“I saw so many people with their jaws dropped.  You changed some perspectives tonight”
“Why can’t we all talk about pricing so frankly?”

Time, location and additional details will be announced in the coming weeks…

Moving Hearts Gallery

In 2006-2007, Children and Family Services partnered with Adoption Network Cleveland through Adopt Cuyahoga Kids to create the first Cuyahoga County Heart Gallery, located at Tower City Center in downtown Cleveland. The idea for this Heart Gallery was inspired by the original project initiated in New Mexico in 2001. A Heart Gallery is an artistic exhibit of photos of children waiting to be adopted, typically older youth with special needs and siblings groups.

In August of 2009, the project was re-launched as the Moving Hearts Gallery. Like the first Cuyahoga County Heart Gallery, the purpose of the Moving Hearts Gallery is to to create awareness and educate the community about the need for adoptive families, especially among our older youth and sibling groups. However, this gallery is designed to move throughout Cuyahoga County, being stationary in one month or longer intervals at such venues as hospitals, libraries, settlement houses, community agencies and museums.

Every photograph captures each child’s unique personality. Beside the photos are captions featuring the child’s answers to questions such as, “What kind of family they would like to adopt them?” and “What are they looking for in a family?” These heart-warming words and images illustrate the potential in each of these young people and invite the viewer to consider ways they might be able to help them reach it.

For those interested in taking the next step, an informational brochure is available about public agency adoption, who to contact to get started and opportunities to mentor and volunteer. During the time the Moving Hearts Gallery is at a site, arrangements may also be made for CCDCFS and Adoption Network Cleveland staff to host informational tables or a brown bag lunch on selected dates.

The Moving Hearts Gallery consists of two exhibit displays:
A free-standing and one-sided wall that is 20 feet in length, 8 feet tall and extends about 1foot in depth.
A four-sided kiosk that stands 8 feet tall with each of the walls extending out 8 feet wide.

Delivery to the site and gallery set-up and break-down is facilitated by staff of CCDCFS and Adoption Network Cleveland, under the guidance of site staff. Alternative arrangements for set-up and break-down may be made at site staff request.

The Moving Hearts Gallery is sponsored by The Cuyahoga County Department of Children and Family Services in partnership with Adoption Network Cleveland. Click here for more info Mixer_Spring2012
