Answering Adversity

Images from the Young Photographers Alliance (YPA) Mentoring Program

The portfolio section of the ASMP Bulletin’s Fall 2010 issue featured selected images from the Young Photographers Alliance (YPA) 2010 international mentoring program, which offered emerging photographers the ability to work with successful professionals to fine-tune their craft, create images for their portfolios, develop business skills and explore markets for their work.


Mentoring teams in 11 cities — spanning North America from Toronto to Los Angeles and reaching across the pond to London — focused on the common social theme of “Answering Adversity” to shed light on the positive and capture stories of strength and endurance.


The 38 participants, two to six per city, produced photo essays under the tutelage of a mentoring photographer, including ASMP members George C. Anderson, Don Cochran, Stewart Cohen, Richard Kelly, Dan Lamont, Stephen Mallon and Nevada Wier.


This expanded Web site content contains project essays and additional images from each of the mentees featured in print.
