At Wonderful Machine, we’ve been collecting a wide range of industry information for over 16 years – and now we’re making a lot of that data available to photographers on a password-protected part of our website. We divide the people and companies in our industry into 5 categories: Clients, Photographers, Crew, Agents, and Resources. Our Find Resources page includes intellectual property attorneys, industry publications, workshops, website templates, and all sorts of other useful information for photographers. While our other Find pages are pretty specific, Resources is intentionally broad because it’s a catch-all for people and companies that don’t fit into any other category.
Our search interface allows you to filter by location (even though a lot of these organizations aren’t really location-specific), specialty (47 of them!), or name.
Like our other search pages, with a login, you can bookmark profiles in two ways. You can keep track of your Favorites by simply clicking on the logo (you’ll see a circle indicating that it’s been selected). You can then filter for your favorites by clicking on the circle icon next to the word RESOURCES.
While the favoriting feature allows you to keep track of a large, permanent list for your own reference, you can use the Shortlist feature to collect a smaller, more temporary list to share with colleagues. When you click on any name, it will change from blue to orange, indicating that it’s been selected. To filter for your Shortlist, just select Shortlist in the Specialty menu and click the Find button. Clicking the Share button will allow you to name your list. Then click Share again and you’ll get a link that anyone can click on and see your list.
Since our website is still pretty new, we’re still populating our Resources page. If you don’t see the information you’re looking for
