Join us on Tuesday, January 15, 2013 in the Wechsler Theater on the American University campus and help cheer on eight of our fellow ASMPDC members as they take ten minutes each to present their work. This year we've asked that they highlight some of their personal work and talk about how it relates to and informs their commercial, editorial and other assignments. Don't miss this lively evening from a diverse group of our fellow photographers as they show us their approach to the craft and business of making great images.
