My colleague Debra Weiss has coordinated a fantastic series of events in LA geared towards those who are serious about securing creative commissions from advertising agencies.
From the flier:
“Many changes have taken place in the ad industry with many more to come. Slashed budgets, more competition, fewer jobs. And now video! What’s a photographer to do?
“Join Debra Weiss and guests for an information packed evening with two Art Buyers, a Creative Director and an Agent and hear directly from the sources o what is needed to make it as an advertising photographer. Gain insight into what it takes to get their attention, how they choose the photographers they work with and how to build lasting beneficial relationships. You’ll hear their honest and frank perspectives on how you can succeed n this rapidly shifting and increasingly impersonal business. A broad range of topics will be discussed that will help you gain confidence in navigating your way through the challenges ahead. This seminar is a must for photographers looking to increase their chance of getting work from ad agencies.”
Moderated by Debra Weiss, held this Thursday evening, 7-10 p.m. at High Profile Productions, 5884 Smiley Drive, Culver City, CA 90232.
