    On Assignment: Portland Squared 2017

    On May 19th, you and 72 photographers will be turned loose in the City of Portland. This year, you will have larger squares to work in and 4 different zones around the City. With Portland Squared, you can go out to do documentary photography or you can go out to create something yourself. We have 8 Categories Awards and 5 Craft Awards, plus the special Lensbaby Craft Award. We created The Craft Awards to reward excellence in photographic craft and technique. These Awards are about the use of a specific photographic tool or principle to create a successful image.

    1. We want you to think of the Categories and Craft Awards as loose assignments. You don’t have to shoot to these, but they may give you more focus. You can, of course, go out and shoot whatever you find and come back to edit and decide where the images fit best. We have found that shooting for a Category gives you direction and may lead to better photographs.
    2. Images may only be entered into a single Category.
    3. All images are judged anonymously.
    4. Images will be judge on their overall impact, and on the 7 areas of photographic practice listed in the rubric.
    5. Images for the Craft Awards will be selected by the Judges Panel.
    6. Images for the Lensbaby Award will be keyworded by the photographers.

    How to create and sell, 

     Double or Triple Albums and Wall Art Sales


    by Andrew Funderburg "Fundy"







    Learn how to communicate the value of print better, discover your client stories and have them envision their artwork.


    Learn how to have better sales without being a salesperson.


    Attendees will leave with a blueprint on how to conduct post wedding and portrait sales with averages in the thousands of dollars. 


    By embracing two major shifts in our industry, the power of print and the role of storytelling, students will be able to make a seismic shift in their business.


    Fundy will take you through the steps necessary to conduct In

    Person Sales (in person or over video chats) with the confidence of a design consultant and zero focus on being a "sales person." 


    You will be taken through a journey, where the client's story takes center stage, and you will return your focus on the love of photography and the people you photograph. And by shifting this focus, your clients will reward you with your highest sales ever.


    Each student will leave with a step by step process that they can replicate as is, or change up and make their own.

    The Photographers Ephemeris (TPE) - Instructions on Understanding TPE Application and Field Practice
    with Gregg Kerber

    Learn how to use this powerful photography planning tool on you smart phone, tablet or computer.

    The Photographer’s Ephemeris (TPE) is a tool to help you plan outdoor photography in natural light, especially landscape and urban scenes. TPE is a map-centric sun, moon and Milky Way calculator allowing you to see how the light will fall on the land, day or night, for any location on earth. See the position of the Milky Way for any location on earth. Want to plan a shot of the sun rising directly over the summit of Mt. Hood from a particular location? TPE is the tool for you. TPE also provides you with all the data you need to plan your day or night shots. 

    PLEASE NOTE:
    TPE is available on Android and iOS mobile devices as a paid app for $8.99 (see instructions below for downloading TPE on your mobile device).  Required for attending this workshop

    TPE is a free web-based app on laptop and desktop computers but is not as feature rich as the mobile app. You are welcome to bring your laptop to this class and will be given written materials on the mobile app capabilities. The desktop version of TPE has a limited feature set and therefore some of the capabilities covered inn the class will not apply to the desktop version.

    This class is PPA-accredited; PPA members who attend the entire workshop will receive one PPA merit.


    Info on Speaker: 

    Pacific Northwest native Gregg Kerber’s love of photography goes back to his early 20s when a friend of his family and renowned landscape photographer introduced him to the art form. While studying engineering at Portland State University, he took photography classes as electives. He went on to earn his Masters degree in Structural Engineering leading to a 25-year career with Boeing Commercial Airplanes. Gregg has been a professional photographer for 10 years and founded Discover the Light Photography 7 years ago where he teaches classes and leads landscape workshops throughout the Pacific Northwest.

    Website: discoverthelightphotography.com

    I have been blessed to live in the great Pacific Northwest my entire life. There is no better place to live if you love the outdoors and photography. This region is filled with endless beauty offering the photographer a vast variety of scenery and wildlife.

    My interest in photography started in the early 1980's when I took photography classes in college while in engineering school. My interest in photography has only grown since.

    My specialty is landscape photography with an emphasis on waterfalls. Since I love waterfalls so much, my favorite area to explore is the Columbia River Gorge which offers over 20 named waterfalls and several others. All told, I have photographed hundreds of waterfalls in the Northwest and around the world.

    I have been a member of the Portland/Vancouver Photography Meetup Group since 2008 and have been the organizer since 2012.

    Secrets of the Street
    A Hands-On Workshop with Tom Hassler

    So what’s the deal with “street” photography anyway? This popular genre, pioneered in the mid-twentieth century, has evolved into a broad range of approaches and techniques. In this hands-on one-day workshop with pro photographer Tom Hassler we’ll delve into ways for you to improve your skills and confidence in finding the pictures that are hiding in plain sight.

    Topics we’ll cover include:

    • What’s the best gear?
    • When to be stealthy (and when not to!) Zone focusing de-mystified
    • Should I be deliberate or spontaneous? Seeing the light
    • Obtaining model releases from strangers
    • Developing your personal style

    Our day will begin with a general discussion of approaches and techniques. Then we will hit the streets and put those ideas into practice. Plan to bring a camera that you are familiar with, extra batteries and memory cards. If you have prime lenses in the moderate-wide to short-tele range, these are ideal. Mirrorless cameras are perfect too, since they are small and discreet. Be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes and dress for the weather. 

    About Tom Hassler:

    Tom Hassler is an award-winning photographic problem solver.  Having worked for top advertising and editorial clients for many years, he is known for always getting "the shot."  A strong sense of graphic simplicity and use of color run through his work.  He constantly shoots for himself as well as professionally, and exhibits his personal photography in custom folios, books and galleries.

    Tom is also an established educator in advanced photography, digital processing and fine art printing technique. As a teacher, he enjoys working closely with each student to help improve on existing skills and identify a unique personal style. Tom lives in Portland, Oregon, and teaches at several venues in the area. He also leads photography workshops in the Pacific Northwest, the southwestern United States and in central Mexico.

    Children's' Character
    Portraiture in B&W

    by Pete Rezac


    We will go into how I consult with my clients prior to our Children's Character Portrait Session. What I’m after and the “Authenticity” that we need in order to make these type of pictures to really shine. The clothing, the dirt, the expression, and the props.

    We’ll then go into how we produce the portraits including how I light them, what I’ve found to be good working exposures, the poses that work well, and how many shots I try to make. These portraits are also about efficiency.

    Finally, we’ll go into the post production that I do to finish these images along with sizes I offer to clients. These are commissioned portraits rather than volume sessions.

    Questions - Its my goal to leave you prepared to start producing these as soon as you are ready. The great thing about in person education is being able to ask questions. So please don’t be afraid to ask - it’s the best way we can all learn!

His primary business is Family and Children’s photography, with a specialization in Black & White portraiture. He has been in business since 2003 and making the move to full time work in 2010.
