ASMP Pittsburgh is glad to announce our next event scheduled for Thursday September 20th, 7pm, at Roy Engelbrecht Studio, 842 Western Ave, Pittsburgh 15233. Registration fees can be found at the online registration link at the end of this message.



This event will foster new and realistic ideas for your business. In these challenging economic times, Jim Cavanaugh, Jenna Close and Ed McDonald have all found answers for their businesses. Cavanaugh is rapidly expanding his client base with modest changes to his business approach and loads of direct marketing, Close focuses her business on one niche market and nurtures this approach into a sustainable future, and McDonald took an idea spawned by one client and made it a business reinvention. The successful results are inspiring to those just starting out and veterans looking for a place in our changing industry. Additionally, these events are a fundraiser for the Young Photographers Alliance (YPA), a mentoring organization for the next generation of photographers. Come out and hear a new business approach and know that your admission fee is helping the next generation of image-makers. The evening is truly about "Photographers Helping Photographers."

We are pleased to announce that the speaker for the Pittsburgh event will be Jim Cavanaugh.
