Posted on 2/20/2013 by Jim Pickerell | Printable Version | Comments (0)

Image Source has announced the dates and locations of its latest series of photographer workshops, starting in London on March 12, 2013 and ending in Los Angeles on March 21st.

Following the success of October’s photography workshops, Image Source is connecting to a wider international audience of professional photographers by hosting workshops in London (12th  March), Copenhagen (14th March), Milan (14th March), Munich (19th March), New York (19th March) and Los Angeles (21th March).
The workshops are intended to offer industry insights through a series of seminars, guest speakers and Q&A sessions, whilst providing one of the best premium stock photographer networking opportunities in the world.

Hosted by the Image Source Senior Leadership team, the workshops kick off in London at The George Shillibeer on Tuesday, March 12, 2013. With presentations from Image Source art directors and guest speakers from Getty Images, the workshops are intended to offer industry insights to help professional premium stock photographers shoot more effectively and efficiently. The workshops will also present an opportunity for photographers to network with each other and get to know the people behind the Image Source brand.

There will be a presentation by Image Source’s Group Creative Director, Ashley Jouhar, on the subject of ‘Authenticity’ in photography. He will be looking to show how advertisers use this style of photography to connect with customers and how stock shooters can do the same. “Imagery will be deconstructed to see exactly what it is that makes compelling, ‘Authentic’ images – images that to me are about ‘Truth’ or at least the perception of ‘Truth’ in the eyes of the consumer,” said Ashley.

There will be a showcase of recent submissions with commentary from Image Source’s creative team highlighting the best sellers and analyzing why they have done so well. With increased expansion into Asian markets, and with new products being launched in North America, these presentations offer an invaluable opportunity for photographers to think about what they should be producing through 2013 and beyond.

Image Source will also be introducing their recently re-launched photographer resource blog. IMSO is a place for photographers to come together to receive insight and direction from art directors, image buyers and to learn from the experiences of others. IMSO also features photographer interviews, industry news and tips intended to support photography professionals, but also the wider photographer community.

“With so many of the greatest premium stock photographers together under one roof, we expect the creative juices to be flowing. With new introductions, ideas generation and real insight from our dedicated team of researchers, we can ensure that those who attend will be in a position to effectively produce the content demanded by image buyers”, said Anthony Harris, Image Source?s Chief Operating Officer.

With over 150 premium stock photographers expected to join Image Source art directors and industry figures, the workshops are set to become one of the largest gatherings of photographers in the premium stock photography industry.
