Busy busy

So as you may have noticed (I just did) I've not been on here since November last year.
What with Christmas and then spending most on January coughing (most pointless illness ever) I have utterly forgotten that this spot existed.

So I am endeavouring to wake it back up.

Recent lovely news has come in the shape of award statues (Graphis, One Eyeland), all projects I collaborated on with Jonathan Knowles . Two of which I Art Directed and a third commissioned piece I Project Managed for Tribe Marketing.

Have a nose at them below and watch this space. I'll be back soon I promise.

Have a walk through his online portfolio here <==

Portrait Salon

In 2011, Carole Evans and James O Jenkins started Portrait Salon, a Salon des Refuses aiming to show the best of the rejected works from the Taylor Wessing Photographic Prize. In previous years the Salon existed as a newspaper and a one off projection event, but this year the they will also reside in the Four Corners Gallery in Bethnal Green for a week.

I am proud to have been part of the sponsorship team for the last two years and last night attended the launch in London, it was a great night with some stunning work on show.
With simultaneous projections of the submitted work in five different cities: London, Leeds, Cardiff, Edinburgh and Brighton it was great to see the photographic community come together to celebrate in such great numbers.

And tomorrow, November the 14th, there will be a panel discussion on the nature of photography competitions at the Four Corners Gallery featuring Steve Macleod from Metro Imaging, Eleanor McNair from MediaSpace and photographer Harry Borden. A must see!

The 2013 Portrait Salon press release can be found here.

Thoughts For Photographers

How do I get an Agent?
A question I hear multiple times, daily, sometimes hourly.

But is it the right question to be asking? 

It's really important to take a step back and think first about what it is you want from your relationship with an agent; asides from the obvious "lots of jobs".

Is is marketing support and booking you appointments? Do you feel swamped when it comes to organising a production? Are you looking for a creative mentor? Or do you feel in a weaker position when quoting to clients?

When you've asked your self those questions first, then it's time to think about how you find your perfect Agent.
