Wonderful Machine is a marketing engine for commercial photographers.
Wonderful Machine leverages the power of 600 photographers, enabling us to research and connect with more clients than any individual photographer ever could. We charge a monthly fee for a listing on our site. For an additional fee, we can help out with photo editing, design, publicity, marketing, search engine optimization, estimating, and shoot production (we provide consulting services to all photographers, not just members). This structure allows photographers to scale our support up or down according to their needs at any given moment, and it allows us to promote our members who have agents without any conflict of interest. By optimizing the number of photographers, their locations and specialties, and by insisting on a high standard of quality, we’ve created a uniquely valuable resource for clients. Keeping our focus on the needs of those clients allows us to deliver superior results for our photographers.
Membership means more than just a directory listing.
Our search interface helps clients find photographers by location and/or specialty, and our photographers can update their future travel plans in our unique calendar feature that automatically updates our search results.
Take advantage of our global database of assistants, stylists, location scouts, studios, equipment rental, retouchers and more.
Our location search is the most advanced in the industry, enabling our members to update their travel plans into the future so they show up in the right place in client searches.
Applying is as simple as sending an email with your exact address and a link to your website. The quality of your photographs & website and the uniqueness of your specialties & location are our primary concerns. Not every photographer is going to be a good fit for us at any given moment, but we do carefully consider each applicant and we do our best to provide meaningful feedback to everyone.
