    New York has a reputation for bad traffic. Luckily, that wasn’t the case last week when Jillian and I packed up 30 of our photographer’s books and headed into Manhattan to meet with the talented folks at The New York Times Magazine, Time and Essence.

    For the September edition of portfolio meetings, it was back to Manhattan! Sean, Stacy and I had an early morning departure and after a very quick drive across New Jersey, we were through the tunnel and ready to meet with the women at Fitness Magazine. We forgot that the office was a mere three blocks from the UN headquarters/meetings. Needless to say, traffic was a touch crazy as most of the roads were blocked off unless you had a diplomat’s license plate. If you live in NYC, you should really look into one those things — so helpful!

    Last week, Ann, Sean and I met bright and early for a busy day of meetings and portfolio events at agencies in New York City. After a bit of tunnel traffic and a few well-deserved coffees, we started our day at the Anomaly office in SOHO. The art buyers at Anomaly were already familiar with WM and enjoyed being able to page through our member portfolios in person.

    Last week, Karrisa, Alex and I headed up to New York for an action-packed day of meetings and portfolio reviews. The day began with the three of us in the beautiful (and enormous) offices of JWT. Many of the art buyers we met with already used the site regularly to find photographers, but were happy to learn about our production, stock and crew resources. The celebrity portraits from Marc Royce and Jeremy Cowart were especially well-received.
