HEATHER MORTON: Artist’s Portfolios – Marketing in the Digital Age
Ms Morton is a Toronto based Art Buyer. What is that, you ask? Well, this is her reply; “Art Buying refers to the act of securing still imagery for Commercial use. In a nutshell, I help advertising agencies and design firms find the right photographer or illustrator for their concept and manage the process of producing that image.”
“The Art Buyer fulfills two important but different functions. On one hand, it is a creative role- collaborating with the Creative Team to source the right creative supplier takes a keen interpretive eye combined with a comprehensive knowledge of current photography and illustration trends and styles. In a completely different way, an Art Buyer is also a Project Manager.”
Join us and see how this aspect of Commercial photography has changed with the evolution of digital technologies.
