Paula Lerner, of Belmont, MA passed on the morning of March 6, 2012. She had been battling against breast cancer since October 13, 2004. After surgery and ongoing treatment, she was able to resume a fairly normal life. Exactly five years later, she was diagnosed with metastatic disease to the bones, which eventually spread to the brain, liver, and lungs.
Her entire immediate family was able to be with her for her last week, including husband Thomas Dunlap, daughters Maia and Eliana, brother Matthew Lerner, his wife Gennie Tierney, niece Jessie Lerner, nephew David Lerner, her parents Dorothy Lerner and Bernie Lerner, and step-mother Mary Lerner.
Paula was a freelance photographer and photojournalist since 1985, and in recent years became a successful producer of multi-media work. She regularly focused on women's issues throughout her career. You can see most of her work in her website at www.lernerphoto.com.
Paula made 5 trips to Afghanistan on her own and as a volunteer for the Business Council for Peace (BPeace). She won on an Emmy in 2010 for her work “Behind the Veil,” a groundbreaking, in-depth multimedia feature about the lives of women in Kandahar, Afghanistan (www.tiny.cc/paula-emmy). She co-authored the book Why We Walk: The Inspirational Journey Toward a Cure for Breast Cancer. Ironically, she was diagnosed with breast cancer while she was still working on the book.
She grew up in Hudson, Ohio and was a graduate of Harvard University, where she met her husband Thomas.
There was a memorial service on Friday, March 9th at 10 am at Beth El Temple Center, 2 Concord Avenue, Belmont, MA 02478.
In lieu of flowers, Paula requested that donations be made to one of these organizations:
• Business Council for Peace (BPeace) at www.bpeace.org (a non-profit network of business professionals who volunteer skills to entrepreneurs in conflict-affected countries to help them create significant employment for all, and expand the economic power of women.)
• Metavivor at www.metavivor.com (research, awareness, and support for families/patients with Metastatic breast cancer.)

Alan Briere, ASMP New England Chapter President 1996-1997 and longtime NE board member, passed away this week. Alan Briere, 58, of Acworth , NH died after a brief illness at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, on February 27, 2012, surrounded by his loving family.
Early in his career, Alan embraced the camera as a tool to capture and share his discoveries. His first major shoe, titled “A Closer Look”, demonstrated for his audiences that an amazing natural world was readily accessible to those who slowed their pace and focused their attention. As his technical and artistic skills grew, so did his assignments. Soon he was traveling across the nation to photograph national parks, wildlife, civil war battlefields, zoos, and architecture. Alan’s images illustrate the books, Hallowed Ground: Battlefields of the Civil War, Great American Hotels: Luxury Palaces and Elegant Resorts; Historic Inns of the Northeast, Historic Inns of the South and Great American Zoos. His work was also used to bring life to magazine articles, textbooks, calendars, advertising campaigns and with the dawn of the Internet age-websites.

Young Photographers Alliance Announces Second Nationwide Mentoring Program
|Pictured in photograph created by Daniella Rascon, (left to right): Margot Cheel, Lynne Damianos, Baoling Huang, Alex Abdalian and Sherry Saunders during their initial meeting in Quincy.|
NEW YORK, NY—June 21, 2011—Young Photographer’s Alliance (YPA), a 501(c)3 educational foundation dedicated to developing the talent of young photographers, has announced its second international mentoring opportunity for students and recent graduates of college-level photography programs. This year’s theme, “Everything is Energy,” focuses on the powerful forces that shape our world, our politics, our environment, our lives and ourselves.
We’re thrilled to offer this tremendous opportunity to a new group of aspiring image makers,” commented Jerry Tavin, YPA Co-founder and president. The goal of this project is for young photographers to look beyond the obvious and explore the theme metaphorically in a way that sheds new light on the human condition.”
Developed with the support of a grant from the American Society of Media Photographers (ASMP)—the leading trade association for commercial photographers—the YPA mentor program pairs emerging photographers with a leading photographer. Each student is encouraged to push boundaries and shed light on the subject in new and innovative ways within the context of their photographic specialty. The deliverables will be not only a collection of thought-provoking images, but also a written essay from each mentee that offers insight and inspiration to viewers. In addition to helping these protégées fine-tune their artistic talent and build their portfolios, the program offers them an unparalleled opportunity to develop business skills and explore markets for their work.
More than 50 students will be participating this year. The North American teams include students from colleges across the country mentored by 17 renowned photographers, including Lynne Damianos of Framingham and Margot Cheel of Cohasset. Their mentees are Daniella Rascon of New England School of Photography, Baoling Huang from Boston University Center for Digital Imaging Arts, Alex Abdalian from Syracuse University and Sherry Saunders from Savannah College of Art and Design. In addition, students in China, Thailand, and the UK will partner with celebrated artists.
In the weeks ahead, YPA will be seeking volunteers to assist with the 2011 YPA Awards Ceremony and Benefit, which will take place on Wednesday October 19. To volunteer or for more information, please contact Deborah Free at (585) 768-7880 or email@example.com.
Letter from ASMPNE President Scott Indermaur
I wanted to virtually introduce myself as ASMP New England’s new President. It is wonderful to step into this role with such an active and successful chapter all ready in place. This season has been full of a variety of programs and I’m excited about what we have accomplished and what is being developed for next season.
This season will wrap up with Two Shots of Photoshop in June, and Bill Bachmann: Stock Is Not Dead! in July. We added an extra program this season due to such an active chapter. In addition, we have added a small roundtable (limited attendance) with AIGA (the professional association for design) in June and a social gathering with the creative community in Portsmouth, NH in August. And yet another gathering in Boston, most likely in September.
We’ll start next season with a 2-day event with Brian Storm in September. AND if you are into multimedia, this will be super cool. I am excited for us to have these opportunities and to offer a wide range of topics. It’s an exciting time to be a photographer!
The current chapter board is the largest I have been involved with and they are awesome. We cover a large geographical area with board members traveling as many as 8 hours roundtrip for our board meetings. Please keep feeding your ideas, feedback and insights to the board. We design our programs and make changes to the chapter based upon your suggestions.
I am all about community and feel it is always better when we are more connected as photographers and friends. From my experience, the film lab used to be the watering hole for conversations and connections many years ago. In this digital age, ASMP programs have become one of those watering holes... and the more places to connect, the better. We now have 8 breakfast clubs in New England and those clubs have even morphed to accommodate their needs, for example one club now holds pot luck dinners and themed meetings.
As the president I strive for more connected members in our photography community. This includes members, non-members and our sponsors. I always enjoy conversation with other creative people. On the board we are also creating more streamlined processes to lessen our workload and to add some fun while having our monthly board meeting.
I look forward to seeing you at our programs As always, please contact myself, or anyone on the board, about anything. We enjoying hearing from you and answering your questions. You may find the board listing here: ASMP New England Board Members.
Your feedback is very important, and this survey will only take a few minutes to complete. Your input helps us plan next season and your time is greatly appreciated.
Cheers to another insightful and connected year,
ASMP New England President
