I’m speaking on a panel at Photo Plus Expo tomorrow. The talk is at 1:30pm at the Javitz Center in New York City.
The panel addresses how online publishing affects photography as an industry. I will be speaking about the ways in which the online space presents vital potential for discourses and subjects who are historically and and currently censored in print. I’ll also be sharing tactical tips for getting your work published online.

Julie Grahame, Founder, aCurator.com
Stella Kramer, Moderator
Tumultuous photography industry changes over the past five years, both in publishing and advertising, have reduced many avenues for emerging and even mid-career photographers to gain entry into the business. But as some doors close, others open, specifically with new online, curated Web sites and online photography magazines. These generally open-submission platforms are creating new avenues for photographers to show their work, and to place their images in front of photo editors, art buyers, gallerists, museum curators and others with an interest in photography. Free from the constraints of advertising demands, these online destinations offer photographers a way for their work to be seen as they like, and the chance to be seen by people all over the world. In this seminar you’ll hear from some of the biggest names in this new photography world, including Michael Itkoff, editor and chief of Daylight magazine and others from the world of photography and design. Moderator Stella Kramer, a Pulitzer prize-winning photo editor brings these new stars of the online world together to tell you the essentials of how they choose the photography they feature, what the submission guidelines are, and what increases your chances of being selected. They will also discuss other online sites, and the future of photography through the increasing prominence of these online magazines and curated forums.
