Pricing, negotiations, and contracts; these tenants of being in business as a photographer are not scary, but ignore them at your own peril! In this 2-hour program, photography business expert John Harrington will walk you through how to price and negotiate your way to the best deal possible. John will share with you real negotiations and pricing in today’s Washington, DC market. Did you know it’s fair and reasonable to charge for sending an image via email to a client? Through a series of actual negotiations with clients, John will share the how’s and why’s of pricing, and how easy it is to get from “no” to “yes” in a negotiation.

John Harrington is the author of two books: Best Business Practices for Photographers, and MORE Best Business Practices for Photographers.

A longtime member of the WHNPA and past President of that organization, John’s work has benefited The Washington Post, USA Today, Time, Life, Newsweek, The National Geographic Society, and Rolling Stone, among many others.

John lectures across the United States and has spoken at events for the American Society of Media Photographers, Advertising Photographers of America, Professional Photographers of America, and the National Press Photographers Association, and currently serves on the national board of the ASMP as well as the NPPA. John last spoke to WPOW in February of 2010.


Extended Deadline: WPOW and SpeakeasyDC

WPOW and SpeakeasyDC are seeking your stories to present SHOW AND TELL an evening of true, autobiographical and compelling stories from female photojournalists during the Intersections festival at the Atlas Performing Arts Center on February 21, 2015.

Do you have a story about:

·       A time that you had assumptions about an assignment/project that turned out to not be true?

·       A time you were not interested in an assignment/story but ultimately became interested while you were working on it?

·       A time you got especially invested in an assignment?

·       A time you pursued a story because it particularly mattered to you personally?

WPOW and SpeakeasyDC are looking for you!

SpeakeasyDC is seeking members WPOW who are interested in sharing some of their work and the true personal story behind it as part of SHOW AND TELL, an evening of stories about photojournalism which will be presented on February 21, 2015 at the Atlas Theater in DC. No performance or storytelling experience is necessary.

We are looking for true stories – with action, desire, conflict and change – about your work, its challenges and rewards and why it matters to you. Check out our YouTube channel for examples of SpeakeasyDC stories.

If you are interested in being in the show, complete the form in the link below with a description of your story idea and your availability for the performance. Please contact Amy Couchoud at with any questions.
