Presenting Your Work to the New Media Landscape
Are you trying to refresh your portfolio or website in order to expand your marketing for the New Year? Are you too close to your own work to see it clearly, and are overwhelmed by this ever-changing visual and technological landscape?
Editing isn’t easy to do on your own, and it is more important than ever to consider how new technologies and media platforms will affect how your work is viewed.
If you’re wondering about all of this, and what photo editors and art buyers are looking for, then this seminar is for you.
Stella Kramer, award-winning photo editor, will be moderating a panel of industry professionals to talk about new ways in which content is viewed (e.g. iPhones, flexible readers, Tablets, Kindle, etc.), and whether that requires new ways of shooting and editing.
The panel includes:
Roberto De Luna, Photo Editor at Time Out New York
Chris Owyoung, Photographer
Joe Pritchard, Senior Photo Agent at VAUGHAN HANNIGAN
Erin Rabasca, Head of Art Buying R/GA
Alex Wright, Co-founder and Creative Director of Dripbook
Alison Zavos, Photographer, Photo Editor, and the Publisher/Managing Editor of featureshoot.com
