At Wonderful Machine, we work to build relationships with all sorts of blogs, publications, podcasts, associations, equipment manufacturers, and other organizations in our industry. Our Partnership efforts have two components: sharing industry information and publicizing our member photographers.
In April we saw several of our Expert Advice articles circulate through photography platforms and held a Member Open House with long-time Wonderful Machine member and photojournalist Benjamin Norman.
DIY Photography is a blog dedicated to helping photographers understand both the industry and technical skills needed to build their photography business. At the beginning of the month, they republished our article on Louisville-based portrait photographer Clay Cook‘s AI-generated backgrounds, and the many elements he set up in order to create these otherworldly images.
As their blog also focuses on ways to improve one’s photography business, DIY Photography also republished two of our Expert Advice articles. The first was written by CEO Bill Cramer covering wealth management and financial literacy for photographers, while the second article covers the importance of retouching in post-production.
We also contribute often to the AI-PI’s photography blog, Pro Photo Daily, which in April republished our Expert Advice article, which covered submitting images for photo contests and grants.
We periodically arrange Zoom programs, which we call Member Open House, on subjects that we think will be interesting to our members. In April, photojournalist Benjamin Norman recently sat down for an interview with producer Bryan Sheffield and marketing specialist Marianne Lee to discuss his coverage of the Donald Trump indictment for the New York Times.
