A Marketing Success Story

When I interviewed Andy Batt  www.andybatt.com and Therese Gietler instagram.com/askaproducer/ from their studio in Portland, Oregon, I had so many questions for my November issue Shutterbug Business Trends Column. Happily, Andy and Therese give helpful and insightful answers to questions such as:

  • What types of clients have you found to license or buy sports and action photography?
  • How much is stock and how much is assignment?
  • What are the marketing changes they have seen in the last five years?
  • How do you get work in this field?
  • What have been your most effective marketing tools?
  • What are the benefits to work with a producer?

For their interview, check out the November issue of Shutterbug

My InstagramAdventure

Thank you to Therese Gietler @askaproducer for helping me (okay, nagging) me to get started on Instagram for promoting the 5th edition, Photographer’s Guide to Marketing & Self-Promotion. The response has been very positive for the up-to-date coverage of marketing techniques and the NEW thirty-seven interviews and case studies with both consumer (wedding/portrait) and commercial photographers, https://www.amazon.com/dp/1621535479

Of course, you can still find my Business Trends column in Shutterbug Magazine (May issue “Travel Photo Business” on newsstands now!)

So now, it’s time to start my own promotion and regramming of the amazing photographers interviewed in the book on @themariapiscopo, come follow me and see!
