What Our Members Are Saying About PhotoPolitic
"Chris has a great eye for talent. Scouting the world of photographers, he’s a matchmaker for reps and emerging talent. A real resource!"
"It has been fantastic to work with Chris. He has his finger on the pulse of what is going on in our industry and he is great at finding unique ways to market our photographers. He knows his audience and understands the type of content that gets their attention. We have enjoyed our relationship with him and can't wait to see what he comes up with next."
"For years Chris has been a force in the photography world. He continues to explore every avenue to help women advance in the industry and find their voice. The PhotoPolitic platform features some of the best in our field, and I look forward to being a part of its continued success."
"Marketing platforms come and go. They all have both strong and weak points and they all make promises that rarely seem to come to fruition. That being said, PhotoPolitic is not only meeting my expectations but far exceeding them. One thing in particular that I'm loving is the focus on community building amongst top tier photographers. If you're invited to join, don’t hesitate to get involved."
"The game has changed and creatives are now looking at photography and photographers differently. PhotoPolitic is quick, easy and beautifully produced. Today I only have time and money to invest in platforms that work for me."
"This is a business where if you're out of sight you are also out of mind. The challenge is about being seen at the right time. Developed from the perspective of one who commissions photography, PhotoPolitic provides a fresh and relevant platform for top working photographers worldwide to maintain a marketing edge."
"I have been a member of PhotoPolitic for the last year. This has given me an opportunity to work with Chris, see his vision come to fruition, continue to develop and grow. He has proven to be a tireless champion of great photography and photographers. Chris has high standards not only for the community he serves but for the service he provides. With years of industry experience, he has shaped his consulting and marketing to make effective use of his knowledge. Chris is the perfect consultant, a great combination of knowledge, experience and a personable nature. I feel fortunate to have Chris on my side and look forward to our future collaborations."
"We love PhotoPolitic for the quality of the photographers featured. They show a deep range of talent, and the user friendly design makes it simple to find exactly what you want...or just have a nose at what other people are up to."
"There are a ton of portals to advertise on these days and choosing the right ones can be daunting. What I look for is a super clean and easy to use interface, a roster of top notch names, a smart search engine and of course competitive pricing. PhotoPolitic has all of this along with great customer service! I'm excited about where they are going and think they will become the go-to place for finding great talent."
"We love PhotoPolitic. As an artist, it's simplicity saves us time and allows us to show only our best work. The viewer experience is fast and powerful. We're proud to be represented here."
