LPA Photographers profile advice.
"My pictures do the talking, I don't need to explain who I am what I do or why I do it"....... do I ??
Well yes you certainly do, here are a few facts.
Photographers Profile pages are the 2nd most looked at pages on our website and we get on average 130,000 pages looked at per week.
Advertising agencies are starting to ask to see photographers' biographies before they will see their books.
A commissioner or art buyer viewing and liking your work needs to have instant information about you, this could determine whether or not they email you to start a conversation.
Commissioners of photography will not sit and wonder about who you are, they may love your work but can they trust you to deliver? That is the question.
This is so important that we suggest you get a professional writer to do it for you. When you read your biography you should be thinking, WOW! is this really me? That is when you know it's been written properly.
Nicola Joyce is a freelance copy writer and has written a lot of biographies for the LPA and Gallery 1839 photographers.
