A little help from my friends?



As a northern born and bred creative, I have endured the familiar struggle to be noticed within the higher echelons within my industry. The gigs I have missed out on due to my geographic location, the times I have received the reply along the lines of ‘we love your work but we are not taking on new clients at the moment’ is infinite… A British pound for each could have seen me into early retirement.
Considering I am a creative not an agent or a marketer, I have seen relative success over the last decade, but my success has been severely hindered, by my own limitations. I am a creative.
Why an agent?
Why does a tour require a guide? Why does a ship need a pilot boat to guide it in? Why does a child need a parent?
It is a case of need. I do not have the skill set or experience of a seasoned agent.  I am fully confident in my ability, my work, and my photographs, I am also fully aware of my limitations.
I am a creative.I have proven under my own (Amateur) guidance that people understand what I do, admire the quality and originality of the work I produce, and will buy my work and commission me. However the industry is vast, gargantuan, and requires specialists to guide and navigate with you through it.
I do not want an agent so I can sit back & smell the roses! I want an agent to work with, a partner, someone to believe in me but more importantly to guide me along the right path.
So who are you?
Where are you?
