My goal has always been to work globally, especially given my studies abroad in the US and the UK, but finding clients without being based in a country can be quite challenging.
Wonderful Machine is an international photographer agent(cy) based in the US and who actively promote their commercial photographers to clients worldwide. They select photographers based on the consistency of their commercial work and represent about 600 photographers in the US as well as internationally.
This comes very handy as I intend to develop a client base not only in France, but also in Canada and the US, and why not on a more global basis.
That’s right, why should one feel limited by national boundaries nowadays, when Internet, Skype and air transportation make it easy to meet and work with teams coming from very different horizons and cultures? In my opinion it is much more important and relevant to find the right clients based on the kind of work you want to do, and who will be the best match for your style and work ethics! I therefore put a lot of expectations in the collaboration with Wonderful Machine and hope to accomplish this goal more easily with their help.
A first collaboration is already taking place, as I will be travelling to Montreal at the end of September and Wonderful Machine is facilitating a few client meetings for me over there!
