Women in Architecture is excited to kick off 2023 with our first event for year, How to Self-Promote, a 2-Part Series that will focus on the importance of professional self-growth. We want to take this opportunity to help our members revamp their professional bios and headshots as both are key assets in self-advocacy.

Part 1, on Thursday, February 23, 2023 from 5:30 pm to 7:00 pm, will be an interactive biography writing workshop led by SOM Marketing Director, Kelly Fehr, with a special introduction by Tania Van Herle, FAIA & Principal at HED.

Part 2, on Saturday, February 25 from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, will be an in-person social event at EYRC in Culver City where 2 talented professional photographers will be taking professional headshot photographs of attendees.

Kathryn Mueller:

Kathryn (Kat) Mueller just celebrated her 10th year as a portrait photographer specializing in corporate and small business headshots as well as creative portraits for graduating seniors. Kat’s background of being behind the camera on movies and tv for 15 years prior is what informs her narrative approach to her photography subjects today. Kat currently resides in Pasadena with her two teenaged kids and two teenaged cats. When Kat is not behind the camera, she is teaching yoga or having a delicious latte.  You can follow her work on instagram @katm.photo.

Eric Staudenmaier:

At age 12, Eric Staudenmaier set out to document the streets of Denver with his Nikon FE, and ever since, he has been pointing a series of cameras at old buildings, contemporary architecture, urban landscapes, and other stage sets for human life. He attended Art Center College of Design in Pasadena, CA, and his photographs of cityscapes, homes, gardens, museums, and people have been published widely in design magazines, coffee table books, and in the press.
