Successes

Since clients often contact our photographers directly, we won’t know about every assignment or stock sale we generate. But we do hear about the positive impact we’re having...
  • "So awesome that you are my account exec. Wanted to let you know that one of my stock submissions to Time Inc a few months ago ended up getting used in their Glamping Guide as a collaboration with Geico." - Natasha Lee / Santa Monica, California

  • "“My first reviewer today [at the LA Portfolio Review] was by far the toughest and most rigorous of the 4 I ended up with (after the rescheduling and cancellations). I just got this message from him on LinkedIn: “Your work is stunning. I've already shared it with two creative colleagues who have a special interest in transgender issues. Commercial work is excellent as well. Happy to connect and will look for opportunities to collaborate down the road." And here I was just happy that I had someone who asked so many questions and gave the most (and very frank) feed-back.” - Eric Politzer / Los Angeles, California

  • "Figured I let Wonderful Machine know I made it in the Communication Arts Photo Annual this year. It’s taken me almost 20 years and I’m sure I could’ve bought a fancy new car with all the entry fees I’ve paid. Thank you for everything ya’ll do." - Bryan Regan / Raleigh, North Carolina

  • "Over the course of the last 10 years I've used about every consultant, campaign program, and online web site you could imagine with very little to no success. Spending thousands and thousands of dollars, and felt more like a number than a client. During a portfolio review in New York, Emilie Harjes from Readers Digest, said "you should be with Wonderful Machine".   Within two months I've bid on three nice jobs... lost one with Farm Credit Services, landed one with Purina/Colle McVoy, and this potential with Joe... it's the first time a marketing company has worked for me. I'm speechless, and so appreciative. A special thanks to you, and everyone at Wonderful Machine!" - Jamey Guy / Atlanta, Georgia
