How do you get work? As a photographer, how do you compete to secure those highly sought after assignments? There is no silver bullet, but there is an unprecedented opportunity that photographers all over the world have begun to take advantage of. They’ll tell you… there is nothing more valuable then a personal connection.
In June 2011, NYCFotoWorks hosted the Emerge Portfolio Review that brought more than 180 professional photographers together from all over the world to meet with 150 of the industry’s top professionals. Watch the video of the event here and see what some of the attending photographers had to say about the event:
“As the Executive Producer for a very established photography team looking to introduce their reinvented look, NYCFotoWorks afforded us the opportunity to put our NEW book in front of 20 plus photo editors and art buyers in just two days with out the usual hassle of running up and down the city. We were able to meet who we wanted to meet, all under one roof, all in a short period of time and the responses was amazing! Whether you are an established shooter or someone looking to kick-start your photography career, this is the place to be.”
-Buddy Joe, Executive Producer for Brakhax2, Los Angeles,
“NYCFotoWorks was a huge success! After five meetings on the first day, my career took a complete change. Flying in from Denmark, Europe was initially a long shot, but is was really worth the trip. I got some exciting jobs from the event around the world, met other photographers and got a new agent. Just imagine how long it would have taken me to arrange the meetings with all these significant reviewers. Impossible!”
-Martin Dyrlov, Photographer, Denmark
“NYCFotoworks has been two of the most important days of my photography career. With so many photographers out there today, it has become more and more challenging to see photo editors, art buyers and agents. I was able to meet with a great number of very important decision makers that we have been in contact for years. And having the chance to meet face-to-face makes all the difference between someone knowing you verses another email. I cannot think of another event more worthwhile with the high caliber of influential reviewers than that at NYCFotoworks. BTW, my book was called in to 2 ad campaigns on the spot. Have enough books ready.”
-Jeffery Tse, Photographer, Los Angeles
On November 1-3, 2011 NYCFotoWorks will host the Fusion Portfolio Review, merging motion and still imagery into the most comprehensive professional portfolio review they have yet to host. All photographers must apply to the event in order to attend, ensuring professional quality of work.
This is the opportunity photographers have been calling for, the chance to sit down 1-on-1, face-to-face with the creative professional you have been trying to get that meeting with for weeks. Now you can take three days and have a series of meetings of your request. This is by far the most efficient and cost-effective way for a professional photographer to make those necessary connections and increase their work flow.
