So this is part of a consolidated list of my resourceful resources. Colleagues, as well as myself are always hungry for more information and I love to exchange with others where I go to learn more. I feel that one of the best things about being a photographer is that there is always more to learn. This series of posts will be my personal, curated resource of resourcefulness, services and information which have helped my creative business, and will hopefully help yours as well.
I first became aware of Heather Morton through a link on A Photo Editor. I was very interested in Ms. Morton’s perspective as an art buyer and she has proved to provide insightful and sound insight into the creative industry.
My favorite posts have definitely been following two promising young shooters, Jamie Hogge and Grant Harder on their pursuit of a full time photographic career. The series is titled A Year in the Life Project, and I have really enjoyed relating to both image makers on the challenges of the industry.
The second reason I highly recommend subscribing to HMAB’s RSS feed (or adding to your google page) is the new Ask an Art Buyer series. Heather and her team have compiled a list of poignant questions regarding the nuances of the creative world and are asking guest art buyers to answer them. From branching out in photographic genres to dealing with trashed portfolios these conversations are well worth reading.
Overall, I highly recommend professional creatives check out Heather Morton’s blog and the lively conversation facilitated on http://www.heathermorton.ca/blog
