Need help making ideas happen? Join an APA Success Team.

By joining an APA Success Team you have the collective knowledge of 5-7 photographers aiding you in your career. Success Teams help provide the inspiration, structure and accountability many creative professionals need to help advance their career. Most importantly, members develop individual goals and then remain accountable to themselves and the team for achieving them. Teams are comprised of 5-7 photographers who meet monthly to discuss a host of topics:

  • present new sample work (tests) on a monthly basis
  • review completed marketing tasks
  • discuss business issues from accounting to sales calls
  • share collective industry knowledge

We call them Success Teams but they are really effort teams because it's about doing the work day-in day-out that make ideas happen.

We will be joined by Melissa Hennessy who spent 10 years representing some of the best and most genuine photographers and directors in the business. Now a consultant (and teaches as an adjunct at Columbia College Chicago) she helps freelance artists understand the business side of photography, communication, marketing, negotiation and promotion. Melissa will share her keen insights into making it as a professional advertising photographer.

APA Chicago’s Success Team coordinators Lindsay Gallup and Dave Rentauskas will be on hand to talk specifics and answer any questions you have about the Success Team program.

So - if you are interested in getting more information on Success Teams or would like to join a Success Team please attend our meeting on Wednesday, February 18. This meeting is open to members and non-members who are interested in learning more about structuring their business to achieve goals.

Join a Success Team and make ideas happen.
