At our Feb. 8th meeting. Rochester photographer, Tim Fuss, took guild members through an hour-long presentation and discussion of how digital images need to be more than just photos. Effective presentation of artwork is a difference maker for jury submissions, marketing brochures, websites or social media channels.
Fuss is very customer-focused and, whether studio work or an on-site session, he works closely with clients to present their work most effectively. Fuss has worked on-site with exhibitors at such shows as the 100 American Craftsmen Show at the Kenan Center in Lockport, NY, and the Clothesline Arts Festival in Rochester, NY.
