National Press Photographers Association “Business Blitz” pre-conference workshop comes to SND STL

We’re excited to announce our partnership with the National Press Photographers Association for a pre-SND STL conference workshop on freelance business skills on Thursday, Sept. 29!

Pricing will be $10 for NPPA and SND members, $20 for non-members. Speakers are TBA, so stay tuned for more details.

Here’s more info from the NPPA’s official announcement:

Business Blitz, an exciting new one-day educational workshop launched by the National Press Photographers Association, will kick off in June and make five stops across America before autumn, NPPA executive director Mindy Hutchison announced today.

This new NPPA program is designed to offer a variety of topics to help freelance photographers enhance their technical skills while buiilding a profitable, sustainable business.

Currently, five city stops are scheduled: June 10 in McLean, VA (a suburb of Washington, DC): August 11 in Denver, CO; September 29 in St. Louis, MO: October 7 in the San Francisco Bay Area; and November 10 in Tampa, FL.

Hutchison says that NPPA’s Business Blitz is subsidized with funds the organization received from the  Author’s Coalition of America.

“The ACA funding has allowed us to offer an outstanding program with an extraordinarily low attendance fee for the workshop,” Hutchison said.

“The cost will be only $10 for NPPA members, and $20 for non-members, and online registration for the June workshop in Washington, DC, will be available very soon.”

As part of the partnership and general visual-journalist love fest, NPPA members can get the SND-member rate for the SND STL conference registration too. Tell your photographer friends!
