Guide: Premium Data for Photographers
They say, “it’s not what you know, it’s who you know.” While that’s not entirely true – knowledge is power – and in order to be successful, photographers need ready-access to all sorts of information. Over the past 15 years, the staff at Wonderful Machine has been dedicated to learning about every significant person and company in our industry, and now we’re putting that information at your fingertips.
We’re now offering searchable directories of Clients, Crew, Agents, and Resources:
- Clients are the companies that hire editorial and commercial photographers to create visuals that tell stories and sell products and services. We currently track 15,881 clients, which we divide into publications, agencies, and brands. For a small additional fee, we can also provide you with names and contact information for the decision-makers at those companies.
- Crew are the people and companies that help make photo and video shoots happen. We have 4358 hair stylists, makeup artists, location scouts, digital techs, and more.
- Agents help photographers get assignments. We have 555 agents who represent corporate, editorial, and advertising photographers for assignments, as well as stock sales (we are in the process of uploading a total of 2412 from our internal database).
- Resources is a catch-all for all sorts of other organizations in our industry – we’re in the process of uploading 1948 intellectual property attorneys, equipment manufacturers, photographer directories, website templates, and more.
Since our directories are still a work-in-progress, we’re offering access for just $12.00/month and you can cancel any time. As a subscriber to our premium data, you’ll also get 10% off all of our Consulting Services (except for shoot production).
