Our next PROJECTIONS event is set for Wednesday, May 23rd. We’ll be having Tanya Stoli, Eric Gracia-March and Christopher Ang as our presenters. We’re thrilled to have these three photographers present imagery which will guarantee a night of powerful work.
Each photographers body of work will prove to be inspiring on a variety of levels and we’re sure that you’ll leave with a different perspective. We invite you to join us and bring your friends.

Welcome to the club, we all want to work for top clients and huge agencies with big budgets. Here’s a primer to get you on the right track. Remember, we’re not doing brain surgery we’re simply setting ourselves up to succeed.
Two things: In order to succeed you must obtain a realistic view of the landscape. Next, you must be able to bang on all cylinders simultaneously in order to seize opportunities when they come knocking.
First things first, you must understand the ad world, seek and know where to look for opportunities. You must get a subscription to Adweek and Ad Age. Both platforms give you a window into what’s going on in the business.
Next, be sure you have a buttoned up crew that is professional and reliable.
This takes time, I know. But know this, no matter still life or lifestyle nothing is more important to your long-term success then having a team of pros who will help you in your production.

The weekend will be filled with practical and comprehensive information on how to run a successful photography business!

What does an art producer really want to see? How do I write a creative brief? How do I get a rep? How do I separate myself from the competition? These and many more questions will be thoughtfully answered.
