Daniel Miller, owner of Duncan Miller Gallery, has developed a no-nonsense seminar for artists on how to develop their careers so that a gallery will want to represent them.
“Artists constantly ask me for tips on how to advance their careers,” says Miller. “I can’t guarantee this information will get you gallery representation, but these fundamentals will at least save you time, help you understand the process, and point you in the right direction.”

Testimonials from Previous Attendees:
“For photographers just starting out or about to break into the big time, this lecture offers soup-to-nuts, comprehensive insights into the world of galleries and marketing. In an increasingly competitive atmosphere, photographers need to understand the principles Daniel Miller discusses. I highly recommend this lecture.” – Michael M.
“The seminar was exactly what I was looking for. It covered all relevant topics for approaching galleries, as well as valuable insight into whether that’s the direction I would like to go with my career (marketing strategy, availability and exposure of my work in general, etc). Daniel was very knowledgeable and the content was great.” – Brent D.
“This seminar was extremely useful, both to a seasoned fine art professional, and to a new photographer wanting to know how to begin a career! Things have changed in the gallery world and the world at large and I learned new ways to go about promoting myself as a Fine Art Photographer, and especially about how to do the hard work needed before approaching a gallery for representation. This is what a lot of photographers don’t think about. Most of success is about what the artist does, and less about what the gallery does. The gallery helps the photographer to help themselves, and this seminar showed us how!” – E.K. W.
“Fantastic seminar. The smart ideas and direction presented by Daniel sparked new ideas for my own work outlets.” – Amber P.
“Thank you for offering the seminar. I thought it was fantastic in whole and provided great insight for getting ready for galleries. I look forward to more in the future!” – David Z.
“Great information, well organized and presented. It seems like an incredible uphill battle to achieve gallery representation, but I think it’s better to hear the realistic version that was provided instead of some overly positive unrealistic version.” – Gary C.
