Please join us Tuesday, September 25th 6:00- 7:30pm for a fascinating discussion on the evolution of style, presented by ASMP NM professional photographer, Mark Berndt. Mark will talk about the stages of development in a photographer’s style using examples from his work in commercial documentary photography. He will speak simultaneously to the importance of creative development and imprinting commercial work with your own personal vision.
Mark Berndt is a self-taught photographer, film director and digital printmaker whose work celebrates people and the circumstance of life. His communication skills, acquired from 40+ years in film, photography and advertising, inform and infuse his photography.
Primarily a portraitist, Mark’s work celebrates people where they live and work, and his documentary-style narrative images capture life in the moment – the instance and the substance of human interaction.
A former faculty member at Art Center College of Design (Pasadena, CA), the Kansas City Art Institute and the Julia Dean Photo Workshops (Los Angeles), he currently teaches photography and digital imaging in private workshops and one-on-one consultation.
Mark’s professional affiliations include having served on the Board of Directors of ASMP‘s (American Society of Media Professionals) Los Angeles chapter, as a board member and President of ASMP’s KC-Midwest Chapter, and on the board of KC Society for Contemporary Photography. He has been a director member of the DGA (Director’s Guild of America) since 1987.
