DEBRA WEISS @ PHOTO PLUS EXPO

HOW TO BE YOUR OWN BEST REP

Let’s face it. Now more than ever, there are way too many photographers and not enough reps. Many photographers believe that in order to be successful they must have representation. While a good agent can help to make a difference, there are no guarantees. Even with representation, the photographer must always take an active part in shaping and maintaining their careers. Join creative consultant Debra Weiss and guests for a frank and open discussion including topics such as the cost of having an agent, expectations—real and imaginary—from both sides of the table, how to get meetings and what to do once you’ve got them, getting the work you want, understanding negotiation and formulating a career plan. This program is geared toward any photographer, represented or not, who wants to have a better grasp on how to run their business more efficiently and effectively.

Andrea Kaye, VP of Art Production and photographer Reed Young will be joining me at 1:30 today at the Javits Center for this very informative program. 

Many thanks to my great panel yesterday that included photographer Erik Almas, agent Candace Gelman and creative director Kevin Jordan for their participation in HOW TO GET WORK FROM AD AGENCIES.
