Now, more than ever, there are plentiful online and offline opportunities for photographers to engage with their community, share their work to get feedback and submit to opportunities to receive meaningful exposure. But how to make sense of what’s out there? How to chart a course for moving forward?
At LensCulture, we believe that recognition and global exposure are the key for photographers of all levels to advance creatively and professionally. Every day, we give photographers such opportunities to take the next steps in their career. After doing it for tens of thousands of photographers, we have learned some valuable lessons that anyone can apply to their own work.
This talk is for people interested in leveraging opportunities for exposure into long-lasting advancement, whether from: Photo Competitions; Photo Festivals; International Press; Physical and Online Exhibitions; Instagram & Social Media and more. After attending this presentation, we hope the career-building process will be greatly clarified.
