@ SoHo Photo

15 White Street

Learning from the Big Guys – How does a photographer become a brand?

From the ASMPNY newsletter:

“Brands are about the marriage of fact and narrative. It’s important to convey what you do and how you do it so that potential clients can easily understand what differentiates you from the competition. We will analyze major brands and well-known photographers artists who use themselves as they basis of a brand in order to see how they do it. This talk is about sharpening your perception skills, so that you can talk articulately about your own  — and your client’s — brand. You will come away thinking like a brand strategist, and with some practical tools to use in looking at your own brand.”
