What does it take for music and entertainment photographers to successfully market and sell their work?
Presenters: Anna Webber Baron Wolman Julie Grahame
Location: Brooklyn Bridge Park – Pier 3
What does it take for even the most talented music and entertainment photographers to successfully market and sell their work? Rock Paper Photo invited three experts — two photographers and an artists rep/author — to share their personal perspectives and advice about the business side of photography. Between them, Anna Webber, Baron Wolman and Julie Graheme represent decades of professional experience yet lived from very different vantage points. They will address a range of topics including the importance of establishing a unique personal style, copyright protection and licensing, selecting gallery representation, and how to stay positive and focused through it all.
