As nice as it is to travel…it sure feels great to be home. We were down on a shoot in the Mexican Rivera and had great weather! Tonight I will be in Waltham for the ASMP NE event:
Who is buying Photography? What are they looking for? Where are they finding it?
(Please note: Panel Participant List Updated)
This panel discussion with top industry creatives and moderated by Selina Maitreya, is destined to be revealing as well as informative. In a time of economic uncertainties, where is our industry headed and how do photographers adjust to stay in business? We have invited a diverse panel of six industry creatives ranging from large international ad agencies, to the boutique and niche, with a group that includes creative directors, art buyers and producers as well as a graphic designer, all of whom are willing to share their insights and thoughts on our industry now.
After introductions to the panelists, their backgrounds and visual examples of their agencies’ work, Selina will ask the type of questions that are so pertinent today, such as:
What are the big challenges for creatives and photographers in the current climate?
What type of work are you looking for, and has it changed in a significant way this year?
What new trends are you seeing and what has become passé?
What makes a photographer stand out from the crowd in today’s saturated market?
How do you find new talent?
What type of photographer’s promotion appeals to you and do you have a preference?
What makes you bookmark a website?
Do you use stock and if so, how often and where do you go to find it?
Do you prefer dealing with an individual photographer or an agent?
And there will also be ample time for the audience to ask questions during the discussion.
