During the month of July, we contacted 5,723 prospects at publications, agencies, and brands which resulted in 282 replies, 86 meaningful conversations, 13 capabilities phone calls, 6 project proposals, 3 stock requests, 2 portfolio and production capabilities meetings, and 1 project awarded to a Wonderful Machine photographer. Even with the holiday and summer vacations, July was a busy month for outreach. I also researched and added 175 new prospects to the Wonderful Machine database. A few highlights from our connections include :
Hey Julia! I believe you reached out to us earlier this year, nice to meet you. We’re looking for a still photographer to shoot alongside a nonunion video shoot for [client]. Looking for good tech / product photographers who have experience shooting alongside a video shoot – utilizing the existing set/prop/talent looks & lighting setups. We’d love to know if you have anyone who might be a good fit for this! -Production Manager at Ghost Robot
Hi Julia, Thanks for your email…we are actually looking for a couple of photographers for an upcoming project, the needs are quite specific though. By any chance do you have photographers who can shoot a series of portraits and a mini photo essay? Video experience would also be an advantage. -Photographic Officer at Amnesty International
Hi Julia,Thanks for reaching out, and so sorry for the delay. We actually have worked with Wonderful Machine in the past (more specifically, with Jess Dudley) and were extremely happy with the service. He made our project run very smoothly and we were so thankful to have his help…Wonderful Machine remains top of mind for our future projects! -Designer at Bailey Brand ConsultingOver the course of the month, Executive Producers Jess Dudley, Craig Oppenheimer, and I led 13 capabilities calls with a variety of clients including Riester, MIT, Vortex Communications, The Scout Guide, Geneva Global, and more! We had two great meetings with Ready Set Rocket and the Philadelphia Flyers to share our photographer portfolios and discuss our production capabilities. We also scheduled four more events/meetings for the coming months as people return from summer vacations and Fall settles in. We’re looking forward to creating more opportunities to meet new clients in the coming months. Call 610 260 0200 or reach out if you have any questions or suggestions for the Wonderful Machine Outreach Team!
