About the event:
LANDING A JOB IN THE CURRENT PHOTOGRAPHY MARKET
The photo industry is going through radical changes. Getting a commercial photography job requires more savvy than ever. You need to know how to write treatments, produce library shoots, and understand the future of usage licenses.
BlinkBid founder, Lou Lesko will be presenting a hardcore, no-holds-barred practical seminar on the expectations for landing a job in the current market. He will present a real world brief from art producer Suzee Barrabee, formerly of Goodby, as well as the treatment and the three versions of the bid it took to win the job.
After the event, the entire presentation will be available to everyone to use as reference for your own jobs. If ever there was an opportunity to get a true view of the industry, this is it.
Lou Lesko is an American entrepreneur who began as a photographer and writer. He started by shooting pictures in the fashion industry and then expanded his métier to include photojournalism so he could travel to splendid places on someone else’s dime. His work has been published worldwide and has been recognized as “pretty gosh darn good” by a few award bestowing associations.
He is a graduate of the University of Southern California’s writing program, a Lowell Thomas Award winner for photojournalism, and a former editor at National Geographic Assignment. His latest project is BlinkBid, the world’s best bidding and production software for creatives.
