Ask an Art Buyer: Targeting and Evaluating your Promotion

June 30, 2010

Another video: HMAb: Ask an Art Buyer: Targeting and Evaluating Your Promotion from Heather Morton on Vimeo. For reference, here’s Ryan Roger’s question in full. I have an account with agency access, and have been sending out printed promos. My response has been lackluster. I wonder if I’m sending to the wrong people though. Do [...]

Case Study: Imagebanks

June 28, 2010

A few months ago I had the extreme pleasure to speak to an enthusiastic audience in Vancouver at the behest of the Vancouver chapter of CAPIC. The little crystal ball that I consult from time to time suggested to me that shooting Imagebanks could become an increasingly desirable thing for marketers. I’ve spoken in length [...]

The Lounge: Andrew Hetherington

June 27, 2010

The charming Andrew Hetherington has a new website and being an able amalgam of blog, magazine and portfolio, it just might redefine the way photographers show their work. It looks like this: Truthfully, I’m not sure I’m down with it but I like Andrew a lot- What’s the Jackanory? is an inspiration, and a marvel [...]

Shameful Toronto

June 27, 2010

I thought I’d be able to side step the G20 but then I read this tonight about National Post photographers being detained overnight for being “amongst violent people”. To say Torontonians are disappointed and dismayed with the events of this G20 weekend would be understating it. Though local shooters will be able to bolster their [...]

A Year in the Life: In Which Grant Hangs his Hammock and Jaime Slows Down

June 25, 2010

Grant Harder: Hey there. I would have to say the highlight of my week was hanging a hammock in my yard. See photo. Now that summer is here this is where I have lunch when I’m working from home. Sometimes it’s hard to leave. The computer doesn’t give me the same kind of love that [...]

Your Best Image: PDN Contest

June 22, 2010

I am writing this from a brand new, ergonomic chair that, G-d willing will save me from further back pain and suffering. I’m still recovering but struggled up to the computer tonight to tell you about this neato PDNOnline contest that I think you should enter. Go here to read how you can Ask an [...]

A Year in the Life: In Which Jaime Is a Prize and Grant Deals with some Laptop Problems

June 18, 2010

Jaime Hogge: If you’ve been following along at all you’ve probably noticed that I seem to be insanely busy for a few weeks, then dead, then insanely busy again and so forth. Well, I’m happy to say that hasn’t changed at all, it was a crazy week again. It’s bittersweet; my promo didn’t make any [...]

Heather’s Ribs = Out

June 13, 2010

The back problems that I wrote about way back in the winter have culminated in a few nasty ribs that keep popping out. So the next stage in my incredibly prolonged recovery (bonus points if you noticed my taped up shoulder at my HMAb Live! party) is bedrest and this means blogrest too. You’re right, [...]

A Year in the Life: In Which Jaime Does some Embossing and Grant gets his Hustle On

June 11, 2010

Jaime Hogge: I’m all over the place. Since we last spoke I’ve been to Sudbury and back, partook in three birthday mini-parties, had three jobs come in and two get canceled, took some photos and did a whole pile of editing and site tweaking. Things are also really starting to come together on my promo, [...]

Follow Up: Jamie Kripke’s Handmade Promo

June 10, 2010

Oh I had another nice Ask an Art Buyer Video Podcast in the works for you yesterday but after 5 attempts and Photo Booth crapping out on each one, I’m abandoned video until I learn to work in iMovie. If anyone knows why my Photo Booth is cutting out at random spots, please advise. Regardless, [...]
