For many photographers, one of the hardest things about the current business paradigm is that it requires them to work totally on their own. Photographers not only have to make photos, record audio, and capture video, they are also running their own business, coming up with their own assignments, and marketing their own work.
There are many innovative groups working against this trend, who understand the benefits of banding together with other creatives, including people with different skill sets, like marketing, accounting, and design.
This webinar will ask four such groups to answer three basic questions:
1. How are you running your organization?
2. What are the benefits for the photographers/professionals involved?
3. What plans do you have for the future and what challenges do you face?
The four groups answering these questions will be:
Wéyo: A U.S. company that creates complete publicity/marketing packages for NGOs and nonprofits.
Drik: A Bangladesh photo group that educates local photographers and helps disseminate their work.
Luceo Images: A collective of young American photographers who are exploring new business models.
Nophoto: A Madrid-based collective that has created dynamic photo-based art and marketing campaigns.
Organized and facilitated by Miki Johnson, founder and editor of the RESOLVE Blog.
