Demystifying Representation

Creating a successful partnership with an artists’ agent

In the increasingly competitive photo field, many photographers need to know more about effective representation. Developing a mutually beneficial business relationship with the best agent or agency for you is often a crucial step in your successful career. If you are currently seeking representation, or think you might want to at some point in your career, this is an essential event you won’t want to miss. Join APA as these top artists’ agents candidly discuss important topics like:

  • Who should have a rep?
  • What exactly can a rep do for me?
  • What exactly can I do for a rep?
  • What stage in my career is the best time to have representation?
  • How do I get the right rep for me?
  • What kind of promos are effective in attracting a rep?
  • How do I work efficiently with my rep?
  • What are the typical percentages a rep earns?
  • When I first start working with a rep, what will they expect me to do?
  • How will my marketing change when I get a rep?
  • What kinds of new clients can I expect to get?
  • How do I set up a mutually beneficial contract with my rep?
  • When the time comes, how do I amicably end my partnership with my rep?
