The importance of marketing yourself in the digital age

So here we are on the digital highway and hey guess what? You can advertise for free. Facebook, Twitter, Linked In, You Tube, all sound great.  But, as many of you will have found out,  the bad news is you have to invest a huge amount of time and effort to make these platforms work for you.

The LPA was set up with the sole objective of helping photographers and filmmakers market themselves and nowadays that means through social networking as well other online and traditional means. The LPA has set up a marketing infrastructure which links all these disparate elements together into one cohesive marketing 'force' . So, come and hear how we at the LPA can make it happen for you.

Register for the event here.

Sophia Wallace Opening In London & New York

Gallery Openings In London & New York

Please join me Tuesday, October 12 for the first public viewing of my new series On Beauty. I will be exhibiting 4 large scale photographs as part of a two person show with Julie Fogarty at Leslie/Lohman Gallery in Soho, New York. The show will remain on view through December 8. In this new series I examine the charged nature of beauty in masculinity. There are consequences for boys who are considered too pretty. Though men are lovely, often it is women who are utilized to represent beauty in Western visual culture. Women also stand in for the emotions of sadness, vulnerability, and passivity while idealized masculinity is often represented as a monolith of unwavering strength. But what about the vulnerability of masculinity? What about masculine doubt, receptivity, melancholy? And what of the uniquely masculine aspects of beauty? With these questions, On Beauty began.

Sebastian Rich Shoots Ballet In Argentina

Bullets To Ballet
Sebastian Rich

Sebastian Rich is a photographer and hard news cameraman and has been working on the front line in war zones for the past three decades.
He has just spent two weeks embedded with the the Julio Bocca Ballet School in Buenos Aires Argentina.

"I am starting to smile behind the camera. Not the perverse smile of the photographer who knows he has got the shot of some one in their quintessential moment of terror in a war zone. But the smile of the photographer who has just captured the most beautiful movement he has ever seen. As I am a lensman and not a pensman I will try and let my pictures tell the story of the dedication and sacrifice of these ballet dancers. I think that’s fair to them and me"

At this point in my new found passion “a little knowledge is a dangerous thing”

You can view some of Sebastion's ballet pictures and read the supporting text in his LPA Featured Gallery.
