ASJA 2018 Annual Writers Conference
Professional Headshots Onsite – Steve Schulman Photography

Portrait photographer Steve Schulman will once again be shooting headshots at this year’s Conference on Friday and Saturday. Steve is known for his engaging, relaxed style, quickly making writers feel comfortable and look their finest. Headshots can be used for book jackets, articles, social media, LinkedIn, and all other professional needs.

Steve Schulman’s special package includes: a brief consultation with an expertly crafted 20-minute shoot -- with original images ready to download onto your computer. All this for ONLY $195! That’s over 75% off his private studio rate.

ADVANCE SCHEDULING STRONGLY SUGGESTED! Before the conference, schedule your shoot by reaching out to Sessions available on a first-come, first-served basis so don’t miss this opportunity. Make your appointment now! Accepts cash, personal checks, venmo, and credit cards (with 3% service charge).

Appointments will be scheduled Friday and Saturday mornings. Meet the ASJA Expert Team. Mentoring can jump-start careers. "I went to that meeting as a longtime newspaper writer, with no clue how to pitch anything," said ASJA member Laura Beil. "I followed what I learned about query letters and pitching to editors. I just completed a story for the New York Times (which made it onto the front page yesterday!) Reader's Digest query accepted right away."
