They say, “it’s not what you know, but who you know.” While that’s not entirely true – knowledge is power – and in order to be successful, photographers need to have ready access to all sorts of information.
Sometimes photographers reach a certain level of success and they feel the need to have that extra level of support that only a photographer’s agent can provide. When that time comes, our Find Agents page is a great place to start that search.
At Wonderful Machine, we divide all the people and companies in our industry into 5 categories: Clients, Photographers, Crew, Agents, and Resources. In our massive effort to reimagine, redesign, and rebuild our website, our Find Resources page is the last step in our data migration process.
With most photographer directories, your location is static. There is at least one directory that I know of that allows you to update your current location in real-time, which is nice. But we have taken that idea one step further by allowing our photographers to update their Travel Plans to show any number of locations into the future.
Besides making great pictures, finding clients is probably the single biggest challenge for any commercial photographer. At Wonderful Machine, we’ve been collecting information on publications, agencies, and brands for nearly 15 years.
Even with dozens of stock photo agencies offering up millions of images, clients still sometimes struggle to find the right image to meet their needs. Our unique Stock Request service provides clients with access to our extensive network of photographers — each with many images that won’t be found in any stock photo library.
