Senior Photo Editor – Wonderful Machine
Honore began her career as the manager for Max Vadukul Studio, where she maintained and archived photographs, coordinated photo shoots, and printed Vadukul’s portfolio for agency representation. She then moved to the New Yorker to take these skills to a higher level. While there, she took on an array of responsibilities, producing and commissioning photo shoots, managing the licensing rights of photos, as well as maintaining relationships with museums and galleries.
Through working at Wonderful Machine and pursuing her own photography career, Honore has a palpable passion for the medium. But what she loves most about her work are the photographers and the relationships she gets to build with them. Honore is especially interested in seeing portraiture, personal projects, and story-driven work.
Owner/President, Carolyn Potts – Creative Consultant
Carolyn Potts, creative consultant, marketing coach, portfolio editor, seminar and workshop leader, is a former photo rep (35+ years), who works with photographers worldwide refocusing their marketing so that it’s as professional and compelling as their imagery. She provides portfolio edits, marketing strategies, and business systems that help photographers land the projects they both want and need.
Founded in 2004, her results-focused photography consulting practice is based on extensive industry knowledge gained from her long and successful career as a photo rep; a career that was fueled by her education in—and passion for—photography and design. She also spent three years in Silicon Valley where she discovered her “inner geek.” It’s that unique background that helps her clients understand the importance of having an online presence that provides a “user experience” that will engage their own ideal clients. She also helps photographers understand how to “think like a rep” and create business systems that lead to increased assignments.
She’s created over 10,000 portfolio edits/presentations for photographers. Those portfolio edits and marketing plans have garnered hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of assignments from ad agencies, design firms, corporations, and publishers across the globe.
Created back in “The Before Times” (i.e.,pre-pandmic), her popular Marketing and Mindfulness seminar helped photographers learn more about optimizing one’s critical “Inner Game” which is a key to overcoming the unique mental barriers that the social media marketplace presents to photographers (e.g., insecurity, procrastination, anxiety, and “imposter syndrome”). More recently, Carolyn has been helping her clients understand how the threats and opportunities of artificial intelligence will affect their particular photo niche.
She has also curated three fine art photography, hope-themed, fundraising exhibitions for the benefit of social service organizations.
Interested in seeing both Commercial and Fine Art work. Open to seeing motion and multimedia samples in addition to still photography.
