Learn all about what photography representation agents look for when adding new photographers to their rosters. Discover if you are ready for representation, how to find the right agency for you, and if representation is right for you.
I will share my extensive knowledge about how agencies look for artists, what agencies do for their artists, how much commission they take, what their contracts include, as well as red flags to look out for.
You will gain advice on improving your portfolio, website, social media and communication to attract and land a photo rep.
When you finish this course, you will be armed with information, language and confidence to take the next steps towards landing a rep or expanding your business on your own.
This course includes two video lessons; an hour video lecture workshop and an additional question and answer video. There are also downloadable resources including 101 Questions to Ask a Rep and a collection of scripts that you can use when contacting reps.
You can also ask me any additional questions you might still have through the learning platform!
This course is best for commercial photographers who have some experience working on advertising assignments with production teams, but this is not a requirement. While this course focuses on commercial photography representation, much of this course will be valuable for other types of commercial artists seeking representation as well (illustrators, directors, stylists, hair and makeup artists, etc.)
