From ASMP NorCal: If you’ve ever dreamed of producing a book of your own photography or wondered how to raise sponsorship for a photo project please join photographer Rick Smolan on Tuesday January 13th at Left Space Studios to learn more about the pioneering work this creative photographer has done in the publishing and photography words for the past two decades. Smolan will share his knowledge of how to pitch your projects to publishers and how to find corporate sponsorship for your project. He’ll also share tips and secrets about how to get the media to help you publicize your book once its published.

Rick Smolan (view inspiring video: Natasha’s Story, an American Homecoming) is a former Time, Life, and National Geographic photographer best known as the creator of the Day in the Life book series. He and his partner, Jennifer Erwitt, are the principals of Against All Odds Productions, and their global photography projects combine creative storytelling with state-of-the-art technology. Fortune magazine describes Against All Odds as “One of the 25 Coolest Companies in America.” Many of their books have appeared on the New York Times best-seller lists and have been featured on the covers of Fortune, Time, Newsweek, and US News & World Report. Their books include America at Home, UK at Home, Blue Planet Run, America 24/7, One Digital Day, 24 Hours in Cyberspace, Passage to Vietnam, The Power to Heal, Medicine’s Great Journey and From Alice to Ocean. Smolan and Erwitt live with their two children, in Sausalito.
